Question about T-Mobile Sidekick II

In Settings> Sim Center> SIM Card Lock
i accidentally clicked Lock Sim Card. and now it won't unlock.
i live in the Philippines and I can't do anything with my Sidekick.
a message pops out saying that i need to call costumer care to get my PUK number. when i transfered my sim to a Nokia phone, i was able to unlock my PUK code and my phone already worked but when i transfered it back to my sidekick, it still won't work but in Settings there's an option, "Sign In"
and at the upper right corner, a question mark blinking and also this word saying "SIM?" blinking. PLEASE HELP ME

The unlock code is different for each mobile phone.
You need to scan the Sim Card and look-up the unlock code for your phone. The only two options that you have as alternates are to format the Sim Card or buy a new Sim Card.

Its showing SIM lock and i have already tried for 12 times but its still unlocked....pllzz plzzz pllzz help me and advise how i could get rid over it..

you must have given a lock code for the sime card when you used the sim in another mobile. thats why it comes like that, go to settings, security settings and unlock the sim and there you go. if it doesnt work, go to the service provider show room, take a new simcard for the same number and dont try to lock the sim from now.

Phone request me to enter the sim code when i used Cambodia's SIM

not sure if this works with the 2008 but its something you can try, i put a sim card in my LX and was asking for a special code to unlock the phone, well right now tmobile isn't unlocking the sidekick, but you can trick the phone into using the sim card. First go to your settings, go to "SIM Center" and click on disable sim lock, enter in whatever your sim password is (if you dont know your sim password get your PUK (pin unblocking key) number which customer service will give you if you call 611, you can change that SIM pin by typing **05*PUKnumber*newpin*newpin#) now if you wanted to change it to "0123" if your puk was 9483992 its 7-9 digits you would type **05*9483992*0123*0123# now your sim pin is 0123. (trying not to make this super complicated) it will say sim pin not accepted click ok, now click change sim pin you can type the same sim pin 3 times if you want, 0123 0123 0123 now at the top of the screen bars will show up with a white phone beside it, go to Settings-Network Options-Scan and Select Manually, the SIM network should come up, click ok when it finds it and it will connect, now you can call and text on whatever sim you have in the phone
