T Mobile Sidekick 3 how to open it up ?

I need to get to the motherboard (mainboard) in this phone to resolder a loose power plug connection. Does anyone know exactly how to disassemble it ? I was able to take out the LCD screen, but only because I saw the two screws holding it in place. Thanks

You have to flip off the side silver plastic panels. They kind of snap on and off. Probably try to get at them with the screen open. Once they are off you will see the 4 screws to get the phone open.

Loading music into my t-mobile sidekick 2008

first you have to have a memory card for your sidekick. Some have them some dont. you can tell if you take out the battery and there will be a picture of a little thing almost a rectangle with a black arrow above it, if theres a memory card in there your all set. Then you plug your phone into the usb thingy on your phone(where you charge it) then open up my computer and then when you do you"ll see something umm i forget if its like e or f drive but cick one and then open up where your music is and drag it from the music to the box you open up with my computer. Heres another hint you cant use itunes

I dropped my sidekick xl in water.

You'll have to open it and clean all water corrosion with a brush, if it doesn't work after that you need a new motherboard. If you can't get a replacement under warranty there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, If you try a self-repair make sure you feel comfortable with opening devices like that.
