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

I need T-mobile sidekick ...& i am from India...

does your country have a tmobile network or tmobile store around there? if no, then it wont do any good for you to use it if there dont have any tmobile network to work with.
sorry to tell you that.
but, you can try to get a unlocked sidekick and use a(whichever carriers you have in india) sim card and insert in a sidekick. but, you will only be able to use a sidekick are make a phone calls and send & receive a text and thats it. nothing else. 
hope that answered your question.
