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).

    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 lx spacebar

Go to:

Or just read this...:

sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.

You can. you will need to call t-mobile if you want the internet,email,chat and unlimited texting. The data plan runs an extra 20 dollars a month for unlimited service. Without it you can still make phone calls and text.

Try holding down Menu-jump to get to the emergency screen. Then hold down on menu-shift-Q and release. It will ask if you want to reset phone. IT WILL RESET AND DELETE EVERYTHING!!!!. It will be like new. Except sim. This works with sidekick 2, not sure with others.
