make sure your sidekick 3 is turned off completely then take the battery, sim card, and memory card out and lays them on the towel so they can get dries as well place your sidekick 3 in a big bowel with white rice in so they can absorb the wettness off of it and leave them all stay there for overnight or 2 days to let them dries and after 2 days up, put everything back in and turn your sidekick on and see if its worked again.
good luck.
p.s if its not working, then your sol and started to save up some money once again. or you can try and sell it for repair and parts on ebay or another websites and use that money to get yourself another sidekick 3 or wait for a new sidekick to come out that has been talking about it for a while is called a sidekick blade if you havent already heard about it. so yeah. its suppposed to be launch around in summer or fall then use that money for it, if you perfers that or you can go ahead and find a cheaper sidekick 3 around on ebay or you can check on CL(craiglist) to see if they have some with in a good condition for cheap. but, also make sure theyre not scam you for money or give you a fake advertise about it that they dont really have it. (just give you a lil heads up).

    to let me( and us) know if its been resolved
    or not, ok?

    so, you have a good
    day. and take care.

    oh no. da heater will ruined da phones fast.

    NEVER EVER PUT DA PHONES AROUND NEAR OR ONTO DA HEATER. it was not really recommend. thats why its totally dead because of that and its fired whole da wires/motherboards and other things inside of da sidekick and already jacked. thats exactly why, i were suggested you to leave your sidekick in da bowel with full of white rices in it to leave it in there overnight or 2 days so it can taken da wetness off of it. 

    but, oh well. i hope you and your dad will not put your next new sidekick(if youre planning to get a new one or da same model of sidekick you have thats jacked already) in da risk again next time.

    but, sorry about your phone, tho.

    and youre welcome, my friend.

    take care and have a good day. :]

Sidekick 3 Buttons falling off!


The best way to replace the missing buttons on your sidekick 3 is to get a new front housing. You can buy them on ebay for about 15 dollars. It is hard to find the buttons themselves as they are really a pain to take off and replace.

Here is link for the front housings with buttons:

Sidekick 3 question

Your phone needs to be unlocked to use the text option. The code it is asking for is the unlock code.

All of the main sidekick features like internet, aim and email won't be available if unlocked and used on a carrier other than t-mobile.

text and calling will once unlocked though.
