Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Sidekick 3 Sometimes my buttons get mixed up and the roller ball quits working. If I press the upper left button (settings?) I get the music volume and if I press the home button, I get the music que. Why does this happen and how do I switch it back?

Call the sidekick help line, (number is on tmobile.com site) they give you a hotkey to fix this, and the ball if it sometimes quits working you might have to change the sensitivity, or the tmobile hotline the guy will ask you to send it in

Unlocking a sidekick id


an easy way to make the phone work, but you can't text or access you sim but can make and recieve calls until you can get an unlock code is when it asks for the code, hit the big X button to cancel it out, then hit the upper left three lines button to bring up the menu. Go to settings, then network options, then scroll down to scan and select network manually. let it do it's thing and then pick Cingular or ATT sometimes one or the other shows up. And you can make and recieve calls with your number, I am still working on how to get the texting to work
