The only thing I can help you with is the data getting erased. Often If you don't have the sidekick package lots of data get's erased including your contacts.

SOURCE: when my sidekick 3 dies i have to reset the time

Do you have the Sidekick data plan from t-mobile? If not, the data is not being stored on the Danger servers and will delete when you phone dies. You also need that for the web, chat, and email.

Sorry

The brightness on the sidekick 3 is not bright


If it is not bright that is because the backlight on you sidekick 3 has died. IT happens over time. Replacing the Sidekick 3 LCD screen is pretty easy and they cost about 25 dollars if you buy it from ebay.

Sidekick 3 Charging Question


I can tell you the sidekick 3 will not operate properly with out a back cover. In fact, if you remove the rear cover while powered on, it will post a warning message on the screen.
Because you tested and successfully operated the phone with out complication with a back installed I fell confident you should have have any problem with the phone when your back cover arrives.


Good Luck

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.

SIDEKICK ID PROBLEM


1) Insert the Cingular 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.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.

Sidekick 3 charging problems


Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way

check the link below for those
