Your Sidekick is probably not charging. The sidekick has an issue with its charging port going bad. Do you get the orange light when you plug it in? Does nothing come on after it has been on the charger for awhile? Then more than likely it is bad.
If you have a friend with a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID, try their battery in your phone to see if it powers on. If it does, then it is definently your charging port. It about 80 dollars to get fixed or you can do a workaround for about 30 dollars.
What you need to get is a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. This will you allow to charge your battery seperate from the phone. I also recommend getting a second battery so one can be charging at all times.
Here are some links for the charger and the batteries:

Hope that helps

SOURCE: help please!
probably not. If your phone will not turn on at all with a charged battery then the charging cradle won't help. When you try to turn it on, you get no lights or anything?
Check to see if the prongs for the battery connection point are good. Try pushing down on the battery and powering up the phone. Try this with both batteries if you can.
Let me know how that goes and we will try to figure this out.
