The T-mobile sidekicks have an issue with battery chargin port. It's not the battery or the charger.

If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, it runs about 90-100 to get repaired.

The other option is to use a spare battery charger and a extra battery. Always keep one charging while the other is in use. This option runs about 40 dollars from ebay.

Sidekick wont turn on

If you can, try a friends battery, either from a sidekick ID or sidekick 3. The Sidekick ID seems to be having the same issue as the sidekick 3 whefre the charging port goes bad. The best worka round for that is to get a charginfg cradel that has a spare battery slot.
