Awesome! Please let us know if it works out for you, Rico! You could have two phones on one plan. Smiley Wink Or one as a back-up.

I've unlocked the sidekick, inserted the sim, searched and activated att network! YAY!............... then............... I realized the sidekick didnt have texting except through aol, yahoo or microsoft messanger. Other options on the sidekick that made me yank the sim and place it back in my spare att device. but at least its there should I need it as a spare.

Cool! It's always good to have a back-up plan. Like Jennifer Lopez, for example. Smiley Very Happy

Yes JL aint no phool.

The Sidekick would work great if I didnt have to use texting as much as I do on the job as well as personally. before I switched to winmo or ......waiiiiiit for iiit......."ANDROID"., I was content with using microsoft windows msgr but totally and completely restricted to contacts that were in the windows msgr only. That was a bummer buzz killer the moment I fired the Sidekick up last night.

Needless to say, I pulled the sim and laid the SideKickLX (by the way thats where t he "LX" comes from in my screenname) to rest in Cellpjome Simetery until I can find a way to install android on the sk or even settle flr winmo ln that device...THEN it will rize from the unsim-dead

Id check the message center number on the device.probably why texting isn't working.

That is a good point, JFizz DahWiz! Iwill give the Sidekick another try and change the message center number. I dont mind not having the ability to install apps or tools on the device. As long as messaging , calls and emails work ,im goood with it.

Will post results here
