I had the same problem... i do have insurance but i bought a used sidekick lx and i broke the port since it was used it wasnt covered ny the insurance the manufacturer of the phone charges a flat 250$ for any repairs(might as well buy a new 1 for all that). theres a company that fixes this problem. its called opticom there website is called there number is (818) 553-2700 the full cost is about 80 dollars. i know its not a very satisfying price but its propably the cheapest your gonna find it..... and it beats paying almost 400 hundred dollars for a new one or 250 from the manufacturer

You will have to take it to your nearest T-Mobile store. Some stores are now setup as replacement centers as long as you have insurance for your phone. Check for locations on

    T-Mobile does all service on them through Nokia. There are no repair centers unless it's Nokia that can. That is why you need insurance for those phones because T-Mobile is the only carrier in the US that uses those phones.

    Paying an extra $7.00 a month on your bill for that phone is cheaper than getting a new one.

    You might be able to find a used one for sale on E-Bay. It would save you a great deal of headaches.
