Re: cell wont turn on
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. http://shop.sidekickskin.net/SideKick-Repair-Parts/Sidekick-3-Spare-Battery-Charger

this is a very simple solution if someone hasn't told you the answer yet.... just hold your sidekick right side up then flip it as if you were putting it on a table and then there will be a button with 2 arrows and then 1 with what looks as a dot hold in the button with the do until you see the screen start to light up
The problem may lie in the settings-->System-->Backlight-->Battery Power--> Make sure you check "Turn on backlight when a button is pressed...."
I believe this is a firmware bug.
Do the same for external power.
