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.

The screen on my T-mobile Sidekick 3 went white.


You need to reseat the LCD cable. More than likely it has come loose in the back of the LCD

Is the orange light coming on but you have no power? If so, then it is probably not charging. The sidekick 3 charging port is notorious for going bad. The little contacts that send power to battery come loose.

Find a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID and try out their battery. If it powers up, it is your charging port.

The easiest thing to do is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They run about 25 dollars off off ebay and allows you to charge the battery seperate from the phone. A spare battery is good too as it allows you to have one charging at all times.

If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.

The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.

Busted Sidkick 3 Charger Port


Sorry to hear that. The Sidekick 3 is notorious for the charging port getting busted.

If you take it apart, you can see that it is soldered in 5 places to the motherboard. Maybe one of those solder joints came loose.

This link will show you how to take apart your sidekick.

Another option is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They go for about 30 dollars shipped on ebay. This will allow you to charge your battery external from the phone or if you have an extra battery , have one charging at all times.

Check the followinf link to see availability.

Downloading songs(mp3) to your sidekick is very simple. Connect the phone to your PC or insert your memory card. Open My Computer, open SDCard or Removable Disk, Open My Music and simply drag and drop the music files ih that folder.


To register....
  1. Have your phone (Sidekick or otherwise) with you
  2. Visit my.t-mobile.com
  3. Click "Register for My T-Mobile"
  4. Enter your 10-digit mobile number without spaces (e.g. 5557771234) and click "Submit"
  5. Your phone will get a text message with your password. It will be something like ar1wo6 and it is CaSe sEnSiTiVe!
  6. Log in using your mobile number and temporary password
  7. Fill in the information the page asks (note: you will be asked to provide a new password, and if you are using a Sidekick, this will also change your Sidekick login password)
  8. Select your phone from the list if prompted
