    I REALLY want ot get a Sidekick II, so i was wondering if it was possible to be able to use it with verizon? If so, how.

    If not, can i only use it with T-Mobile?

    Thanks

    no you cannot use that in verizon service. sidekick II is a gsm phone and use simcard.
    verizon is a cdma network and don't use simcard.
    you can use it to any gms provider as long that the sidekick you getting is unlocked.
    but if you getting a sidekick from t-mo (lock) you have to use it to t-mo services.

    if your sidekick is unlock , yes! you can use it to cingular service but not on nextel. nextel is iden diff from cingular gsm.

    nope as stated above by another member, you cant use the sidekick with any other service except tmobile.. although that would be great! Maybe the next sidekick they come out with ( if any ) will be useable through multiple services other than Tmobile. That would be great! BUT..I am probably highly exaggerating, it sounds nice but probably wont happen.. Hey, im free to dream, right?!?!? hehe =)

    NOT that i would change from Tmobile.. BUT i would like to know that i have the option of using my sidekick elsewhere, incase i move and get no reception with tmobile, i can just know that i can always use my sidekick, no matter what.

    Please dont get confused, i LOVE tmobile and wouldnt dream of leaving them UNLESS i absalutely had to! in that case, i would want to use my sidekick

    you could use the sidekick 2 with any GSM carrier ( Cingular, AT&T,) but it will only work as a phone and you wouldnt be able to use the data part of the phone (Aim, Email, Download Fun, etc... You could use the data only with a T-Mobile Sidekick or if your with Suncom you have to use a Hiptop (same as sidekick)

    I have had this phone since sept 2004 and I had the Classic SK I think I would know lol, but there is no point to unlocking it because you wouldnt be able to use most of the features that the sidekick has
