Thanks to the person who suggested to Press and hold Menu and L to bypass the GPRS message this will allow you to use the sidekick as a regular phone and allow you to text. HOW MY PHONE WORKS HAHAHA

I have the sidekick slide and when i put my sim card in i had to call t mobile and although i did have some features, to unlock the full features to the phone i had to pay 19.99 a month to get, t mobile had to set it up, they will tell u it will take 2-48 hours but once you hang up with them, turn your phone off for 5 min and when you turn it back on everything should be on

Dont be stupid... you dont have to call anyone... ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS, hold the top left button (the one one that looks like three little bars) and with the screen flipped open press the letter L on the keypad. So while holding the top left button hit the letter L.
