Sidkekick 3 stops booting with the 4 Danger icons on a white screen

1) Remove the battery from your device
2) Flip open the screen
3) with the battery removed, press and hold the W key on the keyboard. Press and hold it and don't let go until I say so. :)
4) Put the battery in (you're still holding "W" right? Good). This is a little tricky to do but you can do it.
5) Keep holding W! :)
6) The device will boot to a screen that has a picture of a SK with Xs for eyes and stars spinning around it's head, like it's been clonked on the head. When you see this, you can let go of the "W" key.
7) After a few more seconds you'll see a screen that says "Sorry! Please restart your device by selecting the Reboot button. If this screen appears again, contact Customer Care."
8) Click the Reboot button on the screen, and hope for the best.

This *might* fix your problem. If it doesn't, there's no point in repeating the steps, just call customer care and have them replace your device. However, a lot of times I've seen an SK3 stuck on that screen, those steps above will fix it.

It's not a workaround, it's a fix. If that fixes it you won't have to worry about your device having a problem, because it won't have a problem anymore.

The only thing this "fix" will help with is if your device stops booting with the 4 Danger icons on a white screen. That's it. It won't do any other magical fix for any other problem. It's really *not* worth the time and hassle to try to use this trick to fix anything else, because if your device boots at *all* past those 4 icons, then this fix, she will do nothing. :)

Hiptop slide dropped in water, Need some software :]


Do you remember getting a hiptop account when you first got your phone? If so , sign onto 'www.hiptop.com.au' and sign in with it. I hope you know your account details. Your username should be what your hiptop email address was. Once you're signed in you should find all of your contacts ,etc on that site.

Unlock a sidekick 3


there is no point unlocking a sidekick, they will only fully work on tmobiles network. if you try and use it on say... AT&T at most you will have txt and phone calls. your internet much run through hiptop/danger network which to the best of my knowledge is ONLY gonna work with tmo anyways.

For more assistance feel free to email support@RidAWreck.com someone will respond to your email in a timely manner. Our site is down for redesign but email is still fully functional. Upon the return of our site we with be offering great Blackberry downloads as well as 24/7 Blackberry assistance.

Code for sidekick


you'll have to call Tmobile when you 1st get onto the call press 0 & it will bring you to assistance faster.
if you want to just re-register your phone just press
Menu+1+0
and when you do that wait 2 seconds & hold down R until you see the 1st 4 symbols.
Good Luck

Unlock Sidekick ID


I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

Sidekick slide


You can do a Menu +L, that will bypass the activation screen. It is trying to connect to the Danger Servers for the Sidekick Data Service, that is why it is still waiting to activate.

For more info, check out www.poweredbydanger.com and go to the forums. They have sections for people outside the US with Sidekicks.
