T Mobile Sidekick 2008 Phone capabilities

Hi,

I live in the Netherlands and have bought a Tmobile SideKick 2008. I want to use it in the Netherlands. I realize that only the phone and SMS capabilities will work. However if I use a bypass SIM card it will not connect to the Dutch network KPN. Any suggestions how to do this ?

What's a bypass SIM card? I'm not familiar with that. The SideKick is sold locked to T-Mo, so I'd think you'd need to get the phone unlocked before you could use it with your provider.

This is a unisim card. At the moment I have unlocked the sidekick 2008. I want to use it in the Netherlands.
How do I set up the sidekick 2008 such that I can use the phone and textmessaging capabilities ?
At the moment the sidekick comes back with "Can not connect to the network". I understand for data purposes, but if I want to use only the phone capabilities how to do that ?

I've also never heard of a unisim. I've heard of a uSIM (3G SIM card). If it's a USIM it might not be compatible with the GSM and EDGE-only SideKick.

Lisa,

Thanks, this is a good lead. Do you know which USIM cards are compatible to unlock the TMobile SideKick 2008 ?

As far as I know you'll need the old fashioned GSM SIM rather than a uSIM.
