Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Not able to sign in to sidekick 3

Hi,
I purchased a sidekick 3 on ebay a few months ago and I recently tried to get the internet service for the phone. After several conversations with Tmobile, I have found out that I can not sign on to the phone and I can't put in a username.
Meaning, when I put my sim into the phone I don't get the prompt asking me to sign in. Therefore, I can't receive messages or downloads from Tmobile and so I can't get the internet.
Is this a fixable problem? They don't think so and I think that it should be.

YOu can try a master reset and see if it allows you to login.

) Remove your sim card
2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info
3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.
4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.
5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.
To perform a hard reset:

SK2 - Press the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit the reset button located behind the screen.

SK3 - remove the battery while the device is on.


6) Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted.

I have same problem, I bought this phone 6 month ago.


You will need to re-pair your phone with the earpiece. The best option is to contact your local cellular rep and get them to assist or go to the store where you purchased the earpiece.

PLEASE HELP!


You can. you will need to call t-mobile if you want the internet,email,chat and unlimited texting. The data plan runs an extra 20 dollars a month for unlimited service. Without it you can still make phone calls and text.

My sidekick backlight


Is it the LCD back light? If so, it probably burned out. Did the phone get wet recently? That is usally the main cause.

You can get a replacement screen on ebay for about 40-50 dollars. Look for ones that come with the instructions and screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx Driver.
