    I'm trying to use a sidekick 2 in Mexico but it seems that nobody and I mean it, NOBODY and not even T-Mobile will give you the SIM unlock code according to this T-Mobile page:

    Read the SIM unlock requests.
    http://search.t-mobile.com/inquiraapp/ui...

    it's like a punch in the stomach.

    I have the same problem. It requires a special code. I have even sent my phone to tech and they haven't been able to unlock it. Unfortunatley you will have to pay for a service online that can email you an unlock code specific to that phone. This service is rather pricey but is worth it if you want to use the phone.
    If anyone else know of any other way around this please let me know.

Hello Everyone
I was a IT manager for Tmobile. The side kick series was designed to work only on t-mobile. They make it hard to get this done. BUT I know how it's done.
Like every good secret in this world the answer doesn't come free. If you would like an instruction manual with the unlock secret it will cost $50 plus shipping.

Hi,
I think your phone is not Unlocked.You should unlock your phone to use it with other network .To unlock your side kick LX you should use a unlock code.you can get the unlock code from the site Unlock-Zone.com .By providing some information's about your phone like the country and the network which is currently locked.By giving this information you will get the unlock code via mail using the unlock code you can unlock your phone to use it with any other GSM network.

I do this for rogers too, but I accidentally shut it off and now I have spent two days trying to find the Rogers Network but it won't do it. Usually it finds Rogers Canada after awhile but it won't do anything. I get the blank phone and everything but it won't find network.

Hello all. as you all are aware of it right now. the sidekick(s) are unlockable. they are specially designed by danger to run under the t-mobile network in the usa. if you contact t-mobile or danger... they will tell you that you cant use it with any other carrier besides t-mobile.

SOURCE: How to unlock special SIM code on Sidekick LX (T-Mobile) from USA

Hey. I own a Sidekick and I'm from the Philippines and you actually can use it anywhere, I figured.

Procedures:
1. Place the SIM Card and open the phone. A window will immediately appear demanding for your SIM PIN. Just press CANCEL.
2. Press Options/Menu or whatever the 3-horizontal bars on the upper left of your phone's called. Go to SETTINGS, then SIM CENTER.
3. Press Unlock SIM CARD
4. If you have a SIM PIN Code, type it. If not, just type 1234. then ENABLE. T he code won't be accepted. Press CANCEL.
5. Press CHANGE SIM PIN
6. In the Old SIM PIN, type your PIN. If you don't have one, just type 1234 again. Type 1234 for the other 2 questions.
7. SUBMIT
8. When "Waiting to register...." appears, all at once press OPTIONS, Letter L and that key on the lower right of your phone.
9. Exit
10. Go to settings again. then NETWORK OPTIONS
11. In the NETWORK SELECTION, press SCAN AND SELECT MANUALLY. Your phone will look for networks and when it's over, press DONE.

OK!

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

The special sim code for the sidekick lx


just ask the phone company provider for your PUK2 AND PUK codes.
when you get them go to the jump menu dial
**05*PUK*passcode*passcode#
the passcode is any 4-8 digits you'd like, that are NOT, AND I REPEAT N - O - T consecutive.
(for example 2736 is good whereas 1234 or 9876 is bad)
if it asks your for the code again put in the PUK2 then go to settings> network options goto the "scan and select manually" button and chose your carrier.
