An easy way to make the phone work, but you can't text or access you sim but can make and recieve calls until you can get an unlock code is when it asks for the code, hit the big X button to cancel it out, then hit the upper left three lines button to bring up the menu. Go to settings, then network options, then scroll down to scan and select network manually. let it do it's thing and then pick Cingular or ATT sometimes one or the other shows up. And you can make and recieve calls with your number, I am still working on how to get the texting to work

If you mean when turn it on, and it comes up and says something like "waiting for activation" you can hold the button in the upper left hand corner (with the three lines) and the L button for a few seconds.

I tried the 800 # and you cannot dial it because one digit is missing. I tried several times and it will not go through. You need another digit in the 800 #.

First call cingular and ask for your P.U.K. number after you get it put the sim card in the sidekick click the three lines on the top left corner go to setting and then sim settings go to put code at the bottom then change code to something simple youll remember....after that go to settings again then network options go to scan and manually select network and its either gonna pop up a cingular or at&t network choose that one and turn off fone and then turn it back on

Unlocking a Sidekick iD for Cingular?


Once your SIDEKICK is unlocked - it will ONLY work for TEXT and CALLS - no data - however, did you know that there is a cheaper solution, called yessim - cost is about $45 and can work on many phones, and be programmed in case you change devices.

T-Mobile Sidekick ID Unlock


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.
