About 50 dollars for the parts.

You will need a LCD and torx screwdrivers to get it open.

Check out these ones on ebay. Some of them come with a screwdriver and instructions.

Good luck!

SOURCE: my friend gave me her sidekick iD, but she fergot the code.

When it asks you for the code, and it's talking about the phone being locked and you havent yet switched the phone over to your phone number, then enter the last 4 digits of your friends phone number. If you've already switched it, enter in the last 4 digits of your phone number.

If it's asking for another code, I'd just call Verizon...they have help for switching to a new phone/activating a new phone that should help you out.

either the trackball is broken or it need to clean.

if its dirty;;then what you need to do is
to have a q-tip and alcohol then drop a small
amount of it on a q-tip and rub(hover) around it
until it works again.

if its broken, then youre looking in get a replacement the whole
phone. so, give a CC ring and let them know about it and they should
be able to get you a replacement that is if they still have some skID left
in the "warehouse" stock. which it has happened with mine as well like few
months ago and i can able to get a replacement. once, i got mines
its working perfectly fine.

(if they cant get you a replacement for a sidekick ID, then i assumes they will
offer you to choice the phone you want;; like,
sidekick 08 or tony hawk sidekick lx)

good luck.

good luck.

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.
