So the sidekick Id has the same issue as the Sidekick 3 with a flaky charging port. It breaks fairly easy.

The cheapest work arouond is to get a charging cradle that has an external charging slot for a battery. See link below

I also recommend a second battery so you can have one charging at all times. They are fiarly inexpensive if you buy them from ebay.

I hope that helps

HOW CAN I UNLOCK MY SIDEKICK 2008 FOR FREE


yes, tmobile does unlock the sidekick 2008 for FREE!!. i promise you this works, i just did this today, the agent told me that they dont usually advertise it.
So here are the steps.
1.call tmobile but dont ask the first representative to unlock it.
2.ask him or her to transfer you too customer care.
3.then ask the customer care agent for the SIM SUB SIBY unlock code.
4. he or she will ask you for the IMEI number, if you dont know that number, just dial *#06# or you can find it on the back of your phone under the battery. IMEI number is a 15 digit code.
this will let you use your sidekick 08 in another country.

Sidekick ID blank screen


if you wiggle around the flexi cable in back of the screen it might flicker on again.
mine was faded but i was still able to see the screen .. i messed with it & it worked.
if you don't trust that way rotate the screen 90 degrees
unscrew it [MAKE SURE PHONE IS OFF!] your going to need a torx wrench, a really small 1.
take the screen off it & undo the back side of the screen & fix the cable that way.
