I called 611 for customer care, and told them about the reboot screen, and they made me press 1, @(the one by the space bar) and 0 at the same time, and told em this should take care of the problem... its been working fine since then.

I just got a sidekick 08 and had the same problem.  It factory rebooted a few times and just kept landing on that screen.  I couldn't find a hard reset button so I just pulled the back off, took the battery and memory car out, yanked the sim, waited a bit and put it back together, and it worked fine.  I may have gotten lucky but try this for sure.  Good luck!

The problem with your sidekick 2008 screen is the backlight is burned out. this can happen if dropped or if it gets wet.

The only way to fix it is to replace the screen. It is fairly easy to do and new ones run about 65 dollars on ebay.
