Sidekick 3 Buttons falling off!


The best way to replace the missing buttons on your sidekick 3 is to get a new front housing. You can buy them on ebay for about 15 dollars. It is hard to find the buttons themselves as they are really a pain to take off and replace.

Here is link for the front housings with buttons:

Unlock Sidekick ID

I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

easy, remember what im about to tell you.
when you're at the privacy code part.
press&hold the top left button and bottom left button.
It'll take you to the emergency phone call part.
step 2 is to press&hold the top&bottom left buttons along with shift&q. it will say wipe out all data. At the bottom it'll say reset. Press that then it's done!
note:it will erase everything on the phone&the privacy lock!
If you want the rings&what not to be reseted go to the menu, system info&press and hold top&bottom left buttons along with shift and x. it'll ask to erase the flash settings. &that's all there is to it! You can do this to any sidekick!

Sidekick3 buttons

The keys may have gotten dirty. So when you push one, it also activates ones near by.

These tips apply to the trackball but you can also use them for the keyboard.

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

My sidekick fell in water , like normal water . And well everytime i use it it says something like " sidekick is having some techinically difficultie plz contact ur nearest t-mobile store " it works fine...

Ok, You need some assistance for that. You should get some precision screws and unscrew your mobile. The get a hair drier and put it on (Hot) or the Red button and start drying the Main board of your Sidekick. But be careful with unscrewing your device, as you may forget some screws.
