Question about T-Mobile Cell Phones
My sidekick lx goes to the white screen with the 4 black boxes and then shuts off, I've tried every reset and nothing, any suggestions???
1.Check the device's battery level for at least two bars of strength.
2.If the battery level is low, charge the battery.
3.If the issue is not resolved, remove the back cover.
4.Remove the battery.
5.Wait 10 seconds.
6.Press and hold the W key.
7.While pressing down the W key, re-insert the battery.
•The device restarts and after approximately 15 seconds, the 'Recovery' screen appears
•Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.

I know you think that T-Mobile customer care may be stupid, but there is a process when you call and they will get you to a Sidekick specific department that uses a troubleshooting flow to determine if the problem is fixable or if your phone just simply needs to be replaced. Your phone has a 1 year warranty from the day you bought it and just in case it is extremely helpful to have the insurance added. It is not fun having to shell out another $350.00 to replace something that you just bought if the warranty does not cover whatever the problem may be. The deductible for a Sidekick is only $130.00 to replace.
