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.

No window pops up

does the code work for all sidekicks i have the same problem but i can make and recieve calls
