Question about Motorola Cell Phones

1 Answer

Bought a motorola sidekick slide off ebay Australia, turned it on and a message popped up saying " Waiting for activation. A welcome screen will appear within 24 hours after purchase. If it does not, call Customer Care to check the status of you account." The sim card that was put in is connected to Optus prepaid, the phone is supposed to be unlocked. We've waited more than 48 hours and nothing has happened. Any advice on what should happen next? Please reply asap.

To be able to send pictures and what not with the sidekick 3 you need to have the sidekick data plan. That is part of the error message you are getting when first turning it on.Without it, all you can do is text and phone

How do you activate an unlocked Sidekick 3?


I have the same problem. But it says it could take up to 48 hours for the Welcome screen to appear. (Usually wouldn't take that long, usually it'll take about 1-3 hours)

Waiting for activation


my service provider said that is because it is waiting to be linked to the internet... in order to use it as a phone until then.... press and hold down L and the menu button for three seconds...and it will unlock the phone aspect but you still have to wait the time period for internet use...
