Re: usb for sidekick id
The sidekick ID doesn't support USB. With the sidekicks, the only thing you see when you plug it in to the computer is the memory card. The Sidekick ID doesn't support memory cards so you will not see anything......Unless you get a developers license.

Do you hear any beeping or noises from your PC when plugging in the device to your USB? Is it even recognizing something is being plugged in/ If so it should prompt you to download proper software. Have you installed your software on the computer that came with the phone? Sometimes it needs to be there but should still at minimum see a new device when pluggin it in. If no response when plugging in try replacing the cable or try on different USB/and or PC
when you plug in connect the phone via the usb cord a window should pop up asking if you want to view the folder. select this option. when you click it, you should see four folders. dcim, music, email, bluetooth. click on dcim. your videos should be stored in this folder. just click and drag them into whichever folder on your pc you want them in. or, when you connect your phone it will give you four options. transfer music, mass storage, phone as modem, pict bridge. select transfer music. this should make the previously mentioned window pop up and you can follow my instructions from there. or, if you have you videos stored in the 'in phone' part of your phones memory you need to move them to your 'memory card' memory. just select 'options', then 'move'.
The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.
The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.
You should be able to plug the usb cable into the port on the right side of the phone.. A screen will pop up on your computer saying new storage divice (not sure if you have a mac). You can open your files and send them to that storage divice. If the pop up does not appear go to my computer and look for the sidekick 3 drive then you can open your music player and right click a song and choose send to and the that storage divice. Let me know if you need help!
If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.
The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.
