You can't. You have to have data to use this device on T-mobile network.

Hello. i have a sidekick iD. i have called tmobile to try and have them activate it. they told me to press menu and l at the same time. it works and i have been doing that process for a year. but i want it...


i assumes you didnt have a data plan on your
tmobile account, yet?

if thats a case, then you would need to have
a data plan to activated it appropriately.

otherwise, it wont be activation which means
you would have to press menu + L manually
to bypass it even time you have the waiting activation
on the screen.

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...

Waiting for activation


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