    Did you let it dry out? If not remove the battery cover and the battery and let it do that.

You can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Cricket phone screen goes white


You could try and have it repaired but most likely the damage has already been done to the phone so no guarantee it's even fixable. I'd get a new phone maybe one of the water proof one's :)

My sidekick lx 2009 got water damage, and now it


Let it DRY up! Remove the battery and let it sit, open, for several hours, if not days. It needs to dry up completely before it can operate again, if you're lucky. My wife dropped hers in the toilet, but quickly did what I suggest, and the phone was fine the following day.

Side kick 3 ... im in malaysia y'all.... ma boi gv me this sideki


You have to call tmobile and get the code. If you dont actually have tmobile, then if you know someone who does, have them call and say that they just bought a new phone and want to try it out and they will give them the unlock code.

Phone fell in puddle


Sadly I think it is too late to help. If it had water inside, that probably shorted it out. However, in the future, you should take the battery out as soon as possible to prevent this.

If you want to try something, just let it dry completely and then try using it again. I doubt that this will do anything, but it might end up working.

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.


Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

http://www.gsfx.org/disassembly/index.htm

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!

Installing sim card in sidekick II


hello, hope these instructions help: 1. To expose the SIM card slot, peel back the bumper from the top-left edge of the device. (fig 1) 2. Insert the SIM into the slot with the gold contacts facing forward and the cut corner facing out. (fig 2) 3. When you release the SIM, make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it will not spring out. 4. Replace the bumper and turn on the device. Any problems, let me know :) Si
