    I know that a lot of you guys are into this sort of thing. Can anybody point me to a guide that will help me through this process? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah I've seen a few of those pages already. I was looking for a way to do it yourself for free. Looks like one of those falls within that criteria, but what if the phone has been out of service for a few months and I can't call tech supportfor an unlock code? Is there no other way way to retrieve it?

    I know how to. Here's the thing though:

    You'll only be able to use phone and SMS because AT&T/any other GSM carrier doesn't have access to Danger's servers. Unlike other normal phones it doesn't connect directly to the internet. Blackberries work the same way, although since every carrier has Blackberries, those will work.

    What you do is put in the SIM card you want to use. When it asks you for the subsidy/unlock code, cancel and go to the SIM center. Turn on SIM PIN (set it to anything). When you reboot your Sidekick, put in the SIM PIN. Go to Network settings/SIM center. Manually pick your network. I've done it myself.

    Thanks, Fred. That seems super-easy, hehe. I will try it out once I get the phone...
