Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

Sidekick 3 Buttons falling off!

The X button, and the GO BACK button are about to fall off of my Sidekick 3. They are the ones above and below the call and hang up buttons. Can they be replaced somewhat easily, and if so, where in the world can i find them? All the Tmobile stores in my area do not carry replacement parts, they just want to sell me a new phone.

The best way to replace the missing buttons on your sidekick 3 is to get a new front housing. You can buy them on ebay for about 15 dollars. It is hard to find the buttons themselves as they are really a pain to take off and replace.

Here is link for the front housings with buttons:

Sidekick 3 Problem


okay i have a sidekick 3 as well and what you need to do is put the paper clip in the hole again and hold the power button at the same time for approximately 3 seconds. This is a hard reset. Now the bad part is that this will reset all of your data back to factory default. If you need further assistance or this does not work click the ask me button next to my name and we can work on it from there. Thanks.

Unlock Sidekick ID


I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

In both cases you lcd screen has died, the backlight will usually go first.

Fixing them is easy, a new lcd screen assy can be purchased from ebay for less than 45 dollars. It only take the removal of 2 screws to replace it. Read throught the procedure below.

The keys may have gotten dirty. So when you push one, it also activates ones near by.

These tips apply to the trackball but you can also use them for the keyboard.

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.
