Hello, hope these instructions help: 1. To expose the SIM card slot, peel back the bumper from the top-left edge of the device. (fig 1) 2. Insert the SIM into the slot with the gold contacts facing forward and the cut corner facing out. (fig 2) 3. When you release the SIM, make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it will not spring out. 4. Replace the bumper and turn on the device. Any problems, let me know :) Si

Identify where the camera is on the phone. Open or remove flap to access the batttery. The sim card goes in that area shaped for it behind the battery. Lift the flap and insert.

I have a sidekick id also,

okay...

there is a part on the back that you can take off, but be carefull when you do take it off, because it can snapp off and brake ( that is what mine did a little bit )
then you will see when you open it a bettery...


alright now that you have gotten to the battery you...

will see it looks like this..

[ ' ' ]

that kind of shape ( like a rectangle with two things sticking up )

now you lift up witht he two things sticking up, and take the battery out,

you will see a slot to but the t mobile card..

I forgot my 3 digit passwod


1. Remove the battery and the SIM card and SD card if you have one 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 factory settings

How to open sidekick and get my simcard out


The SIM card door is covered by a rubber casing that peels back. Pull back the rubber flap to access the SIM card door. The flap that needs to be pulled back is the top left corner of the Sidekick above the Menu key.

Insert the SIM card into the slot with the gold contacts facing up and the cut corner facing out. When you release the SIM card, make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it does not spring out. Replace the bumper, and then turn on the device.

It appears that inserting the SIM into a Sidekick is a rather tricky process. If the above does not completely solve your problem, here is a link to more details on inserting the SIM card. http://support.t-mobile.com/knowbase/root/public/tm50134.htm?

Sorry, the sidekick II doesn't have a battery that can be pulled out. You need to pull back the bumper on one side to access the sim card slot.

    1. Follow these instructions to remove your operator-supplied SIM card from your device:
    2. Turn off your device by pressing the power on/off key.
    • Expose the SIM card slot by peeling back the bumper from the top-left edge of the device: t02005-2.jpg
    • Press down on the silver "catch" and the SIM card will spring out of its slot. Remove the SIM card carefully. (Always handle your SIM card carefully since the card and gold contacts can be easily damaged by scratches or bends. Be sure to keep SIM cards out of reach of small children.)

    1. Now insert the SIM card containing the contacts you want to import:
    2. Insert the SIM card into its slot with the gold contacts facing up and the cut corner facing out. t02005-1.jpg
    • When you release the SIM card make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it doesn't spring out.
    • Replace the bumper and turn on your device.

    Sidekick II won't read sim card


    Yeah, I can help. On the sidekick 08 when placing the card make sure you place the card with the cut edge facing the battery. This phone work with the sim card facing the opposite way. Hope this help:)

    Sidekick


    The SIM card slot on a Sidekick II is located on the top left corner of the device, under the rubber "bumper". The support section of T-Mobile's website has a diagram showing how to insert the SIM in a Sidekick 2.
