Bought a sharp sidekick2008 cell phone from ebay usa imported to the uk suppose to be locked to tmobile when i put my tmobile sim in it request a special code to enable the sim can u help


You can call T-Mobile and inform them that you want to use the phone in the UK on their system - with your T-Mobile SIM card and they will more than likely either unlock the phone or provide you the 'special' code to use it in the UK.

Your other alternative is to purchase an unlock code from eBay. The choice is really yours.

I just bought a sidekick 3 from ebay. when first turning my sidekick on there is a message saying the sim card is waiting for activation or something or another. i receive and send text with no problems...


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

We bought sidekick 3 from ebay it was shipped from china but sim card wont work screen just says waiting for activation


press menu + L at the same time to bypass this screen. This will continue to come up every time you start the phone. by default, it wasn't the t-mobile sidekick data plan and always searches for it on start up

How do you unlock a sidekick 2008 ??


Hello.. I live in denmark and I just got the sidekick 2008.
I bought an Isim (ver. 2) on ebay. I payed $9.
Then I put It under my non tmobile sim card and powered it up and I could se my phonebook and other stuff from my sim. But it keept saying: emergency calls only.
Then you have to put it into a nother mobile phone to get signal. Then put it back in the SK with the Isim and then it works. Just remember to update the sim and phone with the settings from your current phone company by sms. Then it wont happen again.

It worked for me. so I hope it would help others...

I bought a sidekick 3 off ebay but it is still locked to the previous owner's sim card number


I had the same problem with the sidekick i bought off of ebay , when you cal customer care just tell them you got it off ebay and you need the old users information deleted, they will give you step by step instructions on how to do so. Remember to not call on your sidekick becasue you will have to restart the phone.

Sidekick 3


1. Insert your non-TMobile sim card 2. The phone display says "Enter the code". 3. On your Sidkick, press the "X" button. 4. You will see the menu. 5. Choose the left-up angle button. 6. Choose "setting"--->"network"--->"scan and select manually". 7. The phone will search for your network. 8. When your Sidekick finds your network, you can use the phone to make calls

with other sim cards you cant use data services...t-mobile uses different type of connection from other companies

My sidekick3 screen is blank


If your sidekick ID or Sidekick 3 screen is a blank white, then the lcd flex cable has come loose. It is a little difficult to repair but any one can do it. The worst that will happen if you try to repair yourself is that it will not work and you buy a replacement screen from ebay for 45 dollars.

Here are the detailed instructions. Just reinstall your lcd instead of putting a new one on.
