Try holding down Menu-jump to get to the emergency screen. Then hold down on menu-shift-Q and release. It will ask if you want to reset phone. IT WILL RESET AND DELETE EVERYTHING!!!!. It will be like new. Except sim. This works with sidekick 2, not sure with others.

Try this

1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left)
2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call)
3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time.
4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code

This works on sk3 i'm not sure about the skII.

Hey. I own a Sidekick and I'm from the Philippines and you actually can use it anywhere, I figured.

Procedures:
1. Place the SIM Card and open the phone. A window will immediately appear demanding for your SIM PIN. Just press CANCEL.
2. Press Options/Menu or whatever the 3-horizontal bars on the upper left of your phone's called. Go to SETTINGS, then SIM CENTER.
3. Press Unlock SIM CARD
4. If you have a SIM PIN Code, type it. If not, just type 1234. then ENABLE. T he code won't be accepted. Press CANCEL.
5. Press CHANGE SIM PIN
6. In the Old SIM PIN, type your PIN. If you don't have one, just type 1234 again. Type 1234 for the other 2 questions.
7. SUBMIT
8. When "Waiting to register...." appears, all at once press OPTIONS, Letter L and that key on the lower right of your phone.
9. Exit
10. Go to settings again. then NETWORK OPTIONS
11. In the NETWORK SELECTION, press SCAN AND SELECT MANUALLY. Your phone will look for networks and when it's over, press DONE.

OK!

You can only get ringtones from the t-mobile catalog. You can put mp3 on your slide but not as ringtones.
