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.

T-Mobile sidekick II keeps resetting


I had this problem with a new phone, and T-mobile gave me the following instructions.

Try this first:
1) Turn on phone with SIM chip in it.
2)hold down the "@" + "1" + "0" down simultaneously until phone turns off, then back on again. This should fix the problem. otherwise try this,

1) remove battery and SIM.

2) press and hold down the "w" key, and while holding it down insert the battery only.

3)A little face will appear on the screen, then a reboot button. Press the reboot button. Once the phone reboots, insert the SIM. One of those two should fix the problem.

Need to unlock


PLEASE LEAVE A RATING IF THIS WAS USEFUL IF NOT I HAVE ANOTHER WAY OF UNLOCKING THE SIDEKICKS

In order to hard reset the sidekick u have to take the battery cover off when it is off press and hold the {R} letter and take the battery out while still holding {R}, count 4 seconds and place the battery back into the phone while still holding {R}. If this was done right then right then you should see the phone restarting and when it is fully powered on then u should see that the phone lock is completely removed and the phone is not blocked at all

This information was provided by Castro iF there is any thing else u need help with please don't hesitate to email me at castro11213@tmail.com

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!

Cell wont turn on


The T-mobile sidekicks have an issue with battery chargin port. It's not the battery or the charger.

If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, it runs about 90-100 to get repaired.

The other option is to use a spare battery charger and a extra battery. Always keep one charging while the other is in use. This option runs about 40 dollars from ebay.
