    You won't get 3g, but if you can get tmobile to unlock it (or a third party) then it'll work on edge on ATT.

    So how would you go about doing that? I've already seen other ppl on this forum say they asked T-Mobile and they said they won't unlock it because it is their property or something like that.

    I've always been an iPhone person, but if I can get my hands on a sidekick again I'd be so thrilled. Don't want T-Mobile service though.

    Yeah, and with simple research, you can probably unlock it for free.

    It certainly was not because "it's their property". They'll unlock devices for account holders in good standing with an account older than a certain amount of time. I'd suggest starting with TMO. If they can't/won't then use an unlocking service or Google around for the alternatives. Same as any GSM device, really.

    For information on the SIM Unlock Code, refer to the following:


    If you purchased a device from T-Mobile, it has been programmed with a SIM lock which will prevent the phone from operating with other compatible wireless telephone carrier’s services. If you wish to use the phone with the service of another wireless telephone carrier, you must enter a numeric SIM Unlock Code to unlock the phone.
    If you have a Postpaid Plan, T-Mobile will provide the SIM Unlock Code upon request to eligible customers, provided the requesting customer has a minimum of 40 days of active service with T-Mobile and did not request a Subsidy unlock code in the last 90 days.
    For customers with a Prepaid Plan, T-Mobile will provide the SIM Unlock Code upon request to eligible customers, provided the requesting customer has a minimum of 60 days of active service with T-Mobile and either a Prepaid Plan account balance of at least $10.00 or a prior refill within the last 30 days.
    T-Mobile will provide the SIM Unlock Code upon request to eligible former customers, provided that T-Mobile has such code or can obtain it from the manufacturer.
    If you paid full retail price for a device, you qualify to have the SIM subsidy unlock code providedif you meet the following requirements:
    The device must have been purchased at a T-Mobile retail store or authorized T-Mobile retailer.
    The device must be paid for completely. You must be able to fax the proof of purchase to T-Mobile
