I know you think that T-Mobile customer care may be stupid, but there is a process when you call and they will get you to a Sidekick specific department that uses a troubleshooting flow to determine if the problem is fixable or if your phone just simply needs to be replaced.  Your phone has a 1 year warranty from the day you bought it and just in case it is extremely helpful to have the insurance added.  It is not fun having to shell out another $350.00 to replace something that you just bought if the warranty does not cover whatever the problem may be.  The deductible for a Sidekick is only $130.00 to replace.

My sidekick 3 just stays at a white screen with the 4 bottons


Sidkekick 3 stops booting with the 4 Danger icons on a white screen

1) Remove the battery from your device
2) Flip open the screen
3) with the battery removed, press and hold the W key on the keyboard. Press and hold it and don't let go until I say so. :)
4) Put the battery in (you're still holding "W" right? Good). This is a little tricky to do but you can do it.
5) Keep holding W! :)
6) The device will boot to a screen that has a picture of a SK with Xs for eyes and stars spinning around it's head, like it's been clonked on the head. When you see this, you can let go of the "W" key.
7) After a few more seconds you'll see a screen that says "Sorry! Please restart your device by selecting the Reboot button. If this screen appears again, contact Customer Care."
8) Click the Reboot button on the screen, and hope for the best.

This *might* fix your problem. If it doesn't, there's no point in repeating the steps, just call customer care and have them replace your device. However, a lot of times I've seen an SK3 stuck on that screen, those steps above will fix it.

It's not a workaround, it's a fix. If that fixes it you won't have to worry about your device having a problem, because it won't have a problem anymore.

The only thing this "fix" will help with is if your device stops booting with the 4 Danger icons on a white screen. That's it. It won't do any other magical fix for any other problem. It's really *not* worth the time and hassle to try to use this trick to fix anything else, because if your device boots at *all* past those 4 icons, then this fix, she will do nothing. :)

Sidekick lx with water damage


then there is most likely a fuse/circuit going haywire. nfortunately you need a new device. if your device is on warranty, tmobile should give you a new one no hassle. of you bought it elsewhere then i really have no solution because you will need a new device regardless. sorry.

Sidekick 3: System crash and big X, won't start up


HOW TO DO A MASTER RESET ON A SIDEKICK 3 NOTE: Performing this will restore your device back to factory defaults, meaning you'll loose everything on your sidekick!
1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device. 2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad. 3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET. 4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted. 5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device. 6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factory settings.

My side-kick LX will not turn on


Try this, though is used for when the device is randomly rebooting aswell, it might help you to force your Sidekick to come back on:
  1. Check the device's battery level for at least two bars of strength.
  2. If the battery level is low, charge the battery.
  3. If the issue is not resolved, remove the back cover.
  4. Remove the battery.
  5. Wait 10 seconds.
  6. Press and hold the W key.
  7. While pressing down the W key, re-insert the battery.
    • The device restarts and after approximately 15 seconds, the 'Recovery' screen appears.

  8. Select the desired language.
  9. Select Reboot to restart the device.
  10. Your Sidekick should go back to the main screen as normal. Good luck
