Sidekick 3 keeps shutting off

My sidekick 3 keeps shutting off, I just got a new battery and I let it charged for a 8 hour, but its still doing the same thing. What can I do to fix it. Please help... P.S I could be on sidekick for an hour or two or not at all, and it starts to act up.

Well it is quite a persistent problem for all owners of this phone and my suggestion is to take it back to the shop  because no1 really has a solution to fix it ( well at least i dont ! )
the only thing i can think of is the battery , it tends to break when the battery goes low and then it just shuts down! hope i helped bye .

do you mean like the orange light is not light up when
it were charging, correct? if so, then you need to get a new charger.

your charger is probably dead and no longer working.

few of them laid around and need to get rid of it) and will selling
it for pretty cheap.

Battery


Nomad182-

So did you buy it new? If so take it back. If not, then you got a used one that has a bad charginfgport. The sidekick 3 is notorioius for it and the sidekick ID has an issue with it as well. The orange light comes on but the connection that charges the battery itself is broken. Check out www.cellulardr.com. They charge about 75 dollars for the repair or you can do a workaround that charges the battery seperate form the phone.

The following link shows it for the sidekick 3 but the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same.

I would also recommend a second battey so you can have one charging at all times. They runa bout 5 dollars on ebay.

Sidekick 3 charging problems


Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way

check the link below for those

what you do is get a new battery and if that does not help the situation then take the phone into a service center to have it check.

Sidekick


Is it a sidekick 3? If so, is it under warranty? If yes, call t-mobile. The sidekick 3 is known to have an issue with charging ports going bad.

If not under waranty, it will run around 100 dollars to fix.

The other option is to get an external charging cradle and a spare battery. Make sure the cradel has a spare battery chargin slot. This will allow you to allows keep one battery charging and one in the phone. Both items will run about 40 dollars on ebay.

Check out the link below for some more info.
