If you can, try a friends battery, either from a sidekick ID or sidekick 3. The Sidekick ID seems to be having the same issue as the sidekick 3 whefre the charging port goes bad. The best worka round for that is to get a charginfg cradel that has a spare battery slot.
Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.
The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here
The Sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port going bad. It sounds like your may be having this issue. That or your charger is going bad. You battery sounds like it may be an issue as well.
The charging port issue can be worked around by getting an cradel with a spare battery charger slot. An extra battery is a good idea as well. That way you can have one charging with the other one is in use. A new battery and a cradle charger go for about 30-40 dollars on ebay.
Is it a sidekick 3? If so, is it under warranty? If yes, call t-mobile. The sidekick 3 is known to have an issue with charging ports going bad.
If not under waranty, it will run around 100 dollars to fix.
The other option is to get an external charging cradle and a spare battery. Make sure the cradel has a spare battery chargin slot. This will allow you to allows keep one battery charging and one in the phone. Both items will run about 40 dollars on ebay.
