Help me please!!


Take you unit to a T-Mobile store and find out what your options are.

If you have insurance coverage (and you should with that phone), it can be replaced with a deductible.

I have a feeling it has to do with a short in the screen cable.

Does it make difference in the display if the keyboard is opened or not?

Unlock Sidekick ID


I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

Lights don't turn on


You need to replace you LCD. About 50 bucks from ebay. most come with good instructions and the screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx driver to open the LCD.

In both cases you lcd screen has died, the backlight will usually go first.

Fixing them is easy, a new lcd screen assy can be purchased from ebay for less than 45 dollars. It only take the removal of 2 screws to replace it. Read throught the procedure below.

let it charge for 2 hrs. NOw turn it on but beofre pressing button to turn it on, press and hold the l button then press the on button. Once yu see a sidekick icon that looks confused on yur screen, yu may let go and it will ask to reboot. And you do so. Hopefully this works for you.

Sidekick 3 has black box in middle of screen but wont shut on!!


gets stuck on the key-jump.gif symbol? Do a soft reset @ + 1 + 0 and hold down the W or you can pull the battery out and place it back in while holding the W and see what happens when you startup while holding W. __________________
