I have a side kick id unlocked off ebay


You are supposed to have a sidekick plan with t mobile. It will do this until you have this plan. But you can bypass that screen to call and text by holding down the top left button with 3 lines and the letter L on the keyboard at the same time.

Phone wont stop the activation screen


You can bypass the activation screen by pressing "Menu" (the key with the 3 horizontal lines) and "L" - but you will need to do this every time you turn it on.

The only permanent way of getting rid of that screen is to actually activate it - and this needs a T-Mobile SIM with the sidekick service provisioned on it, and will have the effect of locking your device ID to the account of the person who's SIM you used, which might cause problems if you ever want to use the phone on T-Mobile later.

Unlocking a Sidekick iD for Cingular?


Once your SIDEKICK is unlocked - it will ONLY work for TEXT and CALLS - no data - however, did you know that there is a cheaper solution, called yessim - cost is about $45 and can work on many phones, and be programmed in case you change devices.

SIDEKICK ID!!!!!!


I have a sidekick 2008 that is unlocked with a universal unlocking chip.
I had the same problem, and I spent hours and hours online looking for a solution. Soft resets, full resets, turning wireless off then on, turning my phone off then on. None of it worked.
What did work, was when I desperately needed to send a text, I put my simcard (vodafone network) into my old vodafone phone. After I put it back into my sidekick, and voila, it worked! Not sure why. But every now and then my sidekick gets stuck on emergency calls only and error NET9, I put my sim in a vodafone phone (for you which ever network your sim is from) then back into my sidekick, and it works again.

SIDEKICK ID PROBLEM


1) Insert the Cingular SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.
