The sidekick 3 has a known issue with the charging port. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can get it fixed for 90-100 dollars.

The other solution is to get a external battery cradle with spare battery charger and an extra battery. This runs about 40 bucks on ebay.

Inspiron 1501 charging problem

should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really. anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on

The sidekick 3 has an issue with thte charging port. If you have a friend with a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID, try one of their batteries. If your unit powers on, the charging port has gone bad.

the repair for a charginf port runs about 80-100 dollars. A cheaper work around is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger slot. They run about 30 dollars on ebay and it will allow you to charge the bettery seperate from the phone.

My sidekick wont work

It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.

Sidekick3 got wet

those kind of problems are fixed by totally changing the parts... because nano technology is very hard to fix..
you could also try opening it and clean a bit the outside of the lens and see if that helps.. but i doubt it because it could be or will be a sulfated contact
