Question about T-Mobile Sidekick II

Sidekick II problem

My T-Mobile sidekick II has been giving me error messages since Saturday. Reception/Tower issue on the East Coast according to T-Mobile. Tech support had me take my SIM Card out and put it back in a few times. My phone died, no on or off ability even. What the heck? Did they do this??? They are now pushing me to upgrade at my expense, denying any trouble via tower and telling me my phone is old. It was working just no reception before they had me do this!!! What is happening here? Can I get this back on? Please Help. And Thanks!

So there is a master reset on the sidekick II
open the screen and push it slighly left
there is a small hole with an arrow beside it
Use a paperclip, and one touch will do!
It powered right up. 6 calls to T-Mobile and only 1 person knew this! Ugh...
If I still have a problem it is likely a new SIM card and not a new $360 phone!

Hope this helps!

Want to use another sim card in my phone it requires special code can u help me to solve the problem

Well if you are tied to a particular network all you have to do is to unlock your phone to use it any other GSM network. You can get the unlock code through online. Give your IMEI number & get the unlock code for ur mobile .............You also get through online..........I will suggest the website which is doing good service can approach this website.

Drivers de sidekick 2

I don't believe you can download drivers for the sidekick. Most of the functionality of the Sidekick II is based on using T-Mobile services to use the built in features.

My sidekick II is saying data off and i cant call or text

Maybe try to look up the phone number of the company and they should give you a code to put into your Sidekick 2 system. That might help.

Check your data plan. Those 3 things not working is an indication that the data plan is not active for your phone. Call t-mobile to verify

Cell wont turn on

The T-mobile sidekicks have an issue with battery chargin port. It's not the battery or the charger.

If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, it runs about 90-100 to get repaired.

The other option is to use a spare battery charger and a extra battery. Always keep one charging while the other is in use. This option runs about 40 dollars from ebay.
