Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

    The orange light comes on even if the charging port is bad. That is what is so frustrating about it. It looks like it is working but it is not.



    Here is an updated link to a less expensive charger to help you do a work around.

Wont charge


Try a car charger. If the car charger works, then it is either
A) Your power outlet
B) Your wall charger Power Supply unit
C) The phone connector on your wall charger.

If it doesn't work on the car charger, then it is most likely your phone charging system or the connection for charging on your phone. Either way, you will most likely need a new phone. Sorry.

My sidekick 3 wont go past BATTERY LOW! PLEASE ALLOW DEVICE TO ..


turn off your phone. then remove the battery for 5 minutes. also make sure your charger is not plugged in. then put the battery pack into the phone. it should clear up. also you might have over charged the battery. another solution is to buy a new battery pack and if that does not work your phone is acting up on battery basis

If the orange light is coming on, but not charging the sidekick then the charger port is probably bad.

It's about 80 dollars to fix at cellulardr or you can do a work around and charge the battery seperate from the phone.

check out the charging cradle here:

Sidekick ID


The sidekick ID has the same type of charging port as the sidekick 3, which are notorious for going bad. The easiset thing to do is get a charging cradle that has a spare battery slot.

It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.
