Sidekick 3 powers down

The Sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port going bad. It sounds like your may be having this issue. That or your charger is going bad. You battery sounds like it may be an issue as well.

The charging port issue can be worked around by getting an cradel with a spare battery charger slot. An extra battery is a good idea as well. That way you can have one charging with the other one is in use. A new battery and a cradle charger go for about 30-40 dollars on ebay.

Sidekick 3 Charger.

The Sidekick 3 is notorious for having the charging port go bad. New battery or charger doesn't help when this is the issue.

YOu can get it fixed for around 100 dollars or ou can get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger. Since you have an extra battery it will work well for you. They are about 30 dollars from ebay.

T-mobile phone Not Charging

to where are you connecting the charger?
how old is the charger? maybe the cable its broken in the inside... this usually happens at the ends of the cables or if there is a little bump somewhere..
try connecting them and play with them by moving them a little at the ends.... so there will be better a contact..

My side kick 3

The sidekick threes have an issue with the charging port going bad.

If under warranty still, call t-mobile to get it fixed.

If out of warranty, you can get it fixed or buy an external battery charger and a spare battery. This will run you about 40 bucks on eBay.

Chargingb the phone

If it is a single pin charger that just plugs into the phone it sounds like the pin inside the phone has broken from the board which is why you have to wriggle it or wrap it up to get it to work.
this can be repaired but costs are determined by your repairer.

Wont charge

well i suggest you take it back to the shop where you got it from they will most likely send it off to the specialists free of charge , because it is a technical problem .

The most likely reason of this problem is maybe your putting the charger in to hard and its pushing it back so its not alowing it to charge? It is quite a bad phone in that aspect
