Have you tried calling tmobile and getting them to check that the sidekick activation pack is on. I had this problem although, i didnt try calling the phone its the best thing to do to call them. i waited 24 hours and they checked and the shop had not put the service pack on. the lady helped and activated it, it was all working within a few minutes. Hope i helped!

Just bought: Unlocked T-Mobile Sidekick 2, question for ya...


I had the same problem when I bought my unlocked Sidekick.  Hold down the Menu and "L" buttons for about 5 seconds until the "waiting for activation" message goes away.

When you take out your battery wih out shutting down it erases everything but only for about an hour everything does come back it does not erase it forever! Just to let everyone know! Of course if you have an option besides taking out the battery then use that but waiting for it to die is just silly and would take forever!

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!

The sidekick Lx


You can try this. It works on Sidekick 3's

1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left)
2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call)
3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time.
4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code

If that doesn't work you can trya Master Reset

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.

Waiting for activation


Push Menu + L at the same time. It may take more then once. This speeds up the activation.
