    Ok . I Have an blue Sidekick LX, not brand new. In the summer Of O8 I had it in my bag & some of my Pepsi spilled inside it. I immediately went home and blow dried it but I didn't take it apart, I was afraid I'd break it. It was fine at first but now, The Menu button & the button under doesn't work , and the button under the cancel button doesn't work . Nor does the shift alt or the symbol button . My sidekick has a mind of its own and when I press the button, something totally different comes up. this is a major problem its fustrating and im trying to avoid going to the t-mobile store & fixing it because that will be ALOT of money, if thats the case, fairly well then. any suggestions ? I REALLY want this to stop.

Ok from what i can assume, Your keypad has a short in it. This can be fixed by going to T-mobile and generally most stores can swap our your sidekick in no time free of charge depending on the plan. Now if thats not an option its looking like the keypad runs about 40 dollars and they can also swap it out at the T mobile store. Due to the phone and the fact that its easier to have them service id recommend taking it in and having them look at it for free of charge to tell you how they would go about servicing your phone.

thanks,
Nate

How do you put the bluetooth in discovery mode?


Normally you will turn the unit off by pressing and holding the call button for at least 5 seconds. Then when turning the bluetooth device back on you will press and hold the button 5 seconds to be discoverable. Good Luck.

How do I put a Jabra VBT 2050 into discovery mode?


OK, this is what you do: 1. Make sure your Jabra VBT 2050 is fully charged. 2. Enable bluetooth on your phone. 3. Turn on your VBT 2050 with the little button on the side (the white light between the keys should flash). 4. Initiate a search from your phone while holding down the center button on the VBT 2050 (middle, under the + and -). 5. You might need to do another bluetooth search using your phone (it took me about 4 times befor my Blackberry Storm picked up the signal. 6. When your phone asks for a code, type in 0000 (the default number).

Tmobile sidekick iD


either the trackball is broken or it need to clean.

if its dirty;;then what you need to do is
to have a q-tip and alcohol then drop a small
amount of it on a q-tip and rub(hover) around it
until it works again.

if its broken, then youre looking in get a replacement the whole
phone. so, give a CC ring and let them know about it and they should
be able to get you a replacement that is if they still have some skID left
in the "warehouse" stock. which it has happened with mine as well like few
months ago and i can able to get a replacement. once, i got mines
its working perfectly fine.

(if they cant get you a replacement for a sidekick ID, then i assumes they will
offer you to choice the phone you want;; like,
sidekick 08 or tony hawk sidekick lx)

good luck.

good luck.

Malfunction!


sounds like your simcard isn't making good contact. try removing it and cleaning contacts. if that doesn't work go to menu-settings-network options (near bottom) and make surre it is on your service provider. if not select scan manually and when it pulls the list up select your provider and it should work. this also works with the att simcard in a sidekick lx after you change your sim pin number in sim center.
