Francisco849,
The same thing happened to me today. I tried removing and replacing the battery and SIM card, then waited a few minutes and tried again. After this didn't work, I called T-Mobile and the lady, Shawn, told me to check the small box to the left of the SIM card. If it's red, you have water damage, and you need to order a replacement. But your Sidekick does have a warranty, just make sure to call them and order a [free] replacement before your warranty expires. Glad I could be of help. :)

My sidekick 08 screen is blank but the phone is on


more than likely the LCD screen or backlight burned out. You can replace the LCD screen yourself for about 65 dollars which is a lot better than 200 for a new phone.

Check out the following guide

How to Replace the LCD screen on Sidekick 2008

and then check out what screen are available on ebay. These are the only ones I have been able to find for sale

Myfaves wont show up on my jump screen


Since you took your SIM and put it in her phone it probably needs time to sync with T-mobile server.  If your plan does not include data, it may be unable to connect to do this.  I would suggest calling T-Mobile and asking them to send an update to the phone.  I know when I first got my Sidekick 08 it took a few hours for MyFaves to show up even after it was activated, working and connected to the network.  You didn't mention how long ago you made this switch.  The best thing is just let it rest a few hours, make sure it has good signal and network connection.  It should come along.  (Did you have MyFaves on your previous phone?)

Sidekick lx spacebar


Go to:

http://www.fixmysidekick.com/sidekick-lx-or-sidekick-2008-space-bar-not-working/164/


Or just read this...:



sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.
