    The phone worked correctly only on the T-Mobile network. It is no longer supported. Any references to it have been purged from the T-Mobile website.

    From Personal Experience...

    What's your model number?

    Sharp PV300: Original Sidekick LX 2009
    Sharp PV300G: Mobilicity Mobiflip

    Those two are pretty much locked to T-Mobile and Mobilicity, respectively. If you have one of those, you're out of luck.

    Sharp PV300GC Cincinnati Bell Sharp Jump
    Sharp PV300GR It's a Sharp Jump with T-Mobile Branding, but no Danger/Sidekick branding.

    These two have options to change the APN and MMS settings, so you can use them on other networks when unlocked.

    If you can go from the main screen to the Settings, and scroll down to Network Options, see if there is an option for Network APN. If so, enter:

    APN: wap.cingular
    Username: *leave this blank*
    Password: *leave this blank too*
    Then select Set APN. If you can do that, you should be able to also set up MMS.

    For MMS, go to Multimedia Messaging, press the menu button, and go to Settings> Accounts. Press the menu button again and select New Account.

    Under Account Details:

    Account Name: AT&T
    MMSC Address:
    Proxy Port:80
    Under APN Details:

    APN: wap.cingular
    Username: *leave this blank*
    Password: *leave this blank too*
    Hope I helped, I have this phone (PV300GR)
