How To Unlock Your Sidekick

If you’ve ever tried to call T-Mobile and get your Sidekick unlocked to use on another carrier, you know they tell you that the Sidekick can’t be unlocked. Well that’s just plain false. You CAN unlock your Sidekick and call and text on other carriers. In fact I just unlocked my Sidekick LX 2009 the other day so that I could use it on whatever carrier I wanted.

UnlockYourSidekick.com is a brand new site where you can get your device unlocked. Rather than sending it off, or waiting for days to get an unlock code, all you have to do is download their software, connect your Sidekick to your computer, and unlock your device on your own.

The guys at UnlockyourSidekick hooked me up with a free unlock because I wanted to see if they were for real. They’re legit and the software (Windows only) is super easy to use. It’ll walk you through step by step. The hardest part for me was getting the battery out of my device. If for some reason you’re not satisfied, there’s a 30 day money back guarantee.

Most of the recent Sidekick models are supported:
– Sidekick 3 (including DWade and Dianne Von Furstenburg Limited Editions)
– Sidekick 2008
– Sidekick LX (including Tony Hawk Limited Edition)
– Sidekick LX 2009
Others are “Coming soon”

You can unlock your Sidekick at UnlockYourSidekick.com.

    Wow, that’s nice, but get us some details on the future of the sidekick line, cause t mobile usa is keeping us in the dark.

  3. Daniel Says:

    Oh…I just checked out the site, that’s awesome. I didn’t know you can unlock the sidekick.

  4. meme Says:

    I’m confused…what am I paying for when I can just download the program to unlock my sidekick?

  5. blackberrybold9700 Says:

    get with the blackberry movement

  6. Jaz Says:

    I am not sure why people would pay to unlock their sidekicks to go to another carrier…Tmobile is by far the cheapest carrier for data, which you really need to get the most of this phone. I am totally not hating, but just honestly asking why you wouldn’t keep with Tmobile on this one.

  7. Haze Says:

    Avoid it as much as possible. I’ve had it for almost a year and I’m so sick and tired of it. It’s not worth another 2 years of suffering when you can be happy with the Nexxus or just about any other android/blackberry phone.

  9. sidekicks SUCK Says:

    agreed. well at least this allows you to unlock your phone and use it on another carrier, incase tmobile stops sidekick service here in america. At least you would be able to use it on naother carrier, although the data wont work since only Tmobile has access to danger/ microsoft servers

    no more new Sidekicks are going to be released. Microsoft has merged all sidekick staff into their Project Pink which will debut on Verizon later this year.

  23. ncmacasl Says:

    my bug question on this article… will unlocking only allow TXT & Voice access but no other data?? Or will we be able to accessdata (internet, email, catalog, etc.)?? My guess is NO just TXT & Voice. So very little point in unlocking!!!

  24. Yeah Says:

    There is absolutely no point in unlocking a Sidekick. When you unlock it, you can’t use any of the data services, leaving it only able to call and text, therefor making it practically useless. If you’re going to unlock your Sidekick, you might as well just get a normal phone.

  32. eunice Says:

    Did anyone get their sidekick data plan with a new phone with T-mobile? I’m scared of getting a new phone without my 19.99 data plan. Also which phone is better than the sidekick? Which phone would yall recommend?

  33. derald Says:

    Htc hd2 is arguably the best phone they got right now. Im leaving tmobile for the htc evo 4g when it comes out on sprint in june. I’ve had almost all the kicks since the sk color. I love em but there just out dated.

    It is nice website. giving help for a unlock the sidekick.if you have your sidekick locked with the privacy lock and you dont know how to unlock check on you tube there are a video with the answer it works with mine. There are some people and ebay sellers out there who will offer to unlock your phone for a price, but really be careful of those because I haven’t heard of one that was verified yet to be legit.

  41. New Says:

    If you do this can you still use data services like the? internet? What about the catalog or contacts that aren’t saved on your sim card?
