Lets just assume you have already called T-mobile to set everything up.
You now have to wait at least 48 hrs for your welcome screen to pop up and be able to set up your Internet. ( that's what it says )
However
It shouldn't take that long
I purchased mine yesterday, had the sales rep call customer care and set everything up for me
he told me to wait at least 24 hrs for my Welcome screen to come up
but withing like 2 hrs I got my WS and was up and running in no time.

I would suggest getting out of the Waiting for Activation screen by pressing the button on the Top Left hand corner and the letter L at the same time
this will allow you to at least Text and make Calls.
Try accessing the Internet here and there and that might speed up the process.
That's what I did........

If 24 hrs go by and you still have nothing
then I would call in.
Good Luck !

Unlocked sidekick 3 won't get past "waiting for activation"


Press the top left button and "L" key at the same time to by-pass that screen and allow you to use the regular phone functions.

Well it says its unlock !!


Menu on it's own doesn't work - it will take you to the "emergency call" screen. You need to press "menu" + "L" to bypass the activation screen.
