Push Menu + L at the same time. It may take more then once. This speeds up the activation.

I have a side kick id unlocked off ebay


You are supposed to have a sidekick plan with t mobile. It will do this until you have this plan. But you can bypass that screen to call and text by holding down the top left button with 3 lines and the letter L on the keyboard at the same time.

Well it says its unlock !!


Menu on it's own doesn't work - it will take you to the "emergency call" screen. You need to press "menu" + "L" to bypass the activation screen.

Phone locked


WARNING: ALL CONTACTS AND OTHER SETTINGS MAY BE LOST DURING THIS PROCESS!!!

Method:
Before you start, make sure the battery is charged and all security codes or PIN codes or watever are disabled so we dont have any code prompts interfering with this method.

1. Turn off the mobile phone.
2. Insert a "Non-accepted" SIM card (sim card that wont work) half way in so that when you turn on the phone, it still says "Insert SIM".
3. Turn on the phone.
4. Enter the following code and wait patiently for phone to reset:

*2767*2878#

5. Once reset has completed, the phone will still say "Insert SIM". This is where you need to push the sim card all the way in. You can use a paperclip or a tiny object to push it in if you have difficulty. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE PHONE REMAINS ON AT THIS STAGE (TRY NOT TO LET BATTERY FALL OUT) IF BATTERY FALLS OUT, DO NOT PANIC, JUST START FROM STEP 2 AGAIN.
6. Enter the following code and wait patiently for phone to reset:

*2767*3855#

7. After reset is completed, SIM should work and also the reception. Don't get excited, its not unlocked yet.
8. Now we want to make it permanent. First check what locks need to be deactivated with the following code:

*#7465625#

------------------------------------------------------------------------
a)
If Network Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "Network Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*638*00000000#
Message should be "Network Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
b)
If Subset Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*782*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "Subset Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*782*00000000#
Message should be "Subset Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
c)
If SP Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*77*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "SP Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*77*00000000#
Message should be "SP Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
d)
If CP Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*27*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "CP Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*27*00000000#
Message should be "CP Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
e)
If SIM Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*746*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "SIM Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*746*00000000#
Message should be "SIM Lock deactivated" or similar.

Just bought: Unlocked T-Mobile Sidekick 2, question for ya...


I had the same problem when I bought my unlocked Sidekick.  Hold down the Menu and "L" buttons for about 5 seconds until the "waiting for activation" message goes away.

Have you tried calling tmobile and getting them to check that the sidekick activation pack is on. I had this problem although, i didnt try calling the phone its the best thing to do to call them. i waited 24 hours and they checked and the shop had not put the service pack on. the lady helped and activated it, it was all working within a few minutes. Hope i helped!
