One day my sidekick 2 just started losing service very frequently. It would kick me off and take minutes to get service back. Then it kept going and coming more than usual, then one nigth it i lost all service and it never came back. Even after a whole day I called tmobile and they said it was an issue with the wireless built it that it needed to be repaired. Is there any way I can repair this myself, if anyone knows please reply. I called to get an estimate and they said it can be upto $75. now thats a lot of money so im looking for a cheaper alternative. Thanks.
If it is a wireless problem, the cause could be from neighbours who have wireless networks that they have set up, with alot of phones/computer networks using the same channel the seting your phone may be using could cause a conflict with other networks. I dont know this item myself, but check if you can change the channel settings for the wireless section. this could solve your problem. Best Wishes

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 am having the same problem as of Saturday. T-Mobile can not help????? Something is going on with the east coast reception and after tech support had me do a few things my phone died. I am not sure what is happening but they are pushing me to upgrade at my own expense! Hmmm I am annoyed! If you get help will you please let me know! Thanks
try to do a soft reset by presing @ + 1 + 0 and it wil turn off and back on. then go to setting wirless and turn off wireless and turn off the phone then turn it back on and make sure wirless is on again and it should work
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.
hey i tried putting it on roaming but its the same it doesnt recieve any service at all still anywhere i go i tried it outdoor i thought it was my sim so i switched it with another tmobile sim and then with another prepaid sidekick sim and they both dont work. Athanks for trying anyone else got any suggestions.?
