    when you call tmobile to activate a tmobile sidekick slide with your sim card does it automatically let tmobile know? Or do you have to have them assign it to your account?

    when you call tmobile to activate a sidekick slide and you put your sim card in it does it automatically assign the IMIE to your account or do you have to actually have them do. I ask this because I bought a new sidekick slide but am not sure if I like it enough to keep, might sell. So would I be able to just do a master reset?

    Mine was simular, my phone was in my pocket, I pulled it out to call someone and my phone was restarting istelf for some reason. I carried on watching it and a purple light started flashing, I then turned it off and now all I can get from it is a red light flashing, when I put it on charge it flashes a yellow light at me, I have no idea whats happened.

    It was acting weird all day, it kept saying it was charging when really it wasn't, and I wasn't recieving text until hours after they were sent.

    This phone is so sketchy its unbelievable.

    Any suggestions as I still have like 10 months lift on my contract with this phone

Well, QwErTy_GuRl i have a sidekick slide too, and that happened me except i acciddently put mine in the washer. what u should do is, is take out the battery and open the slide and put it against the window where u can get sunlight directly on it. u need to keep it like that for a couple of days. and make sure the back has sunlight, because that is where it needs to **** up the water. the keyboard might not be as great, but when u leave it out in the sun for a couple of days, it will be fine. dont replace it, unless if u have warranty or something then go ahead. but this worked absolutely fine with me. Good Luck! =)
