It appears you have a prepaid SIM card in your cell phone and you have used up all the available credit on this SIM card. You need pay/add money to this SIM card, go to an shop that you can pay to add credit (dollars) to your cell phone service provider's SIM card.

    If this SIM card came with the cell phone, I suggest you get a new prepaid SIM card for this cell phone from a cell phone provider of your choice.

Phone wont stop the activation screen


You can bypass the activation screen by pressing "Menu" (the key with the 3 horizontal lines) and "L" - but you will need to do this every time you turn it on.

The only permanent way of getting rid of that screen is to actually activate it - and this needs a T-Mobile SIM with the sidekick service provisioned on it, and will have the effect of locking your device ID to the account of the person who's SIM you used, which might cause problems if you ever want to use the phone on T-Mobile later.

Text message problem with sidekick slide


Well for the past week or so, Sidekick has been having problems with receiving text messages from other service providers such as AT&T and Sprint. It is best that you call up customer service to find a solution.

SIDEKICK ID PROBLEM


1) Insert the Cingular SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.
