My niece sent it to me from America. She just bought a Nexus 1.

When I put the 2Degrees SIM in I got this message

type in oyur PIN to enable network services

All I need the phoen for is Texting and the odd phone call.. How to I unlock the SIM on the SideKick?

Thank you

The phone is locked. You need it unlocked. Even so it will only work for voice and SMS.

I got it going.

Go to


  • Setting

  • Sim Center

  • Change SIM PIN

  • Type 1111 (this woroked in my case  but may have been 1234)

  • Type your new SIM PIN in


Worked for me. It OK for Phone and Text Message (SMS)

The peoson who gave me the SideKick bought a Nexus 1.. That what I really want
