If it is the privacy lock on the phone then a master reset will take care of it.

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings. Source

    The sidekick II is a little different.

    Follow the directions below.

    1) Remove your sim card

    2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info

    3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.

    4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.

    5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.

    To perform a hard reset:

    SK2 - Press the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit
    will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit
    the reset button located behind the screen.

Try typing #pwd# and then "send. It will reset your password to the the last 4 digits of your phone number. Then you can reset your password back to what ever one you can remember.

Go to the website and log in with old email address or username and password. If you don't know the password you can click the 'forgot password' link. If you don't know the username use the contact page on the site and explain the problem.

If you have old emails in store go and search for the company or website name.
