First you will need a T-Mobile data plan that offers unlimited data access. Next, you need to create a new modem connection. You have to create a new internet connection in Windows XP and choose a manual setup for a dial-up modem. The dial-in number for T-Mobile is *99#, with no name or password. After that,you will need to enter a special "init string" in your modem's properties in Windows XP. You can find this under Control Panel. Go to Phones and Modem Options and choose the Modems tab. You can then begin to dial and connect to the Internet

Have you tried calling tmobile and getting them to check that the sidekick activation pack is on. I had this problem although, i didnt try calling the phone its the best thing to do to call them. i waited 24 hours and they checked and the shop had not put the service pack on. the lady helped and activated it, it was all working within a few minutes.
