    I had the same problem. The battery eventually won't hold a charge at all due to repeated recharging, and of course is not replaceable. My suggestion is that if your phone is still in warranty or you have the insurance try to get it replaced. Don't wait on this or you will be out of luck because the Sidekick 2 is an older model and you may not get any credit on your replacement if you wait too long. Next time go with a phone that has a replaceable battery. The Sidekick is cute and in style but once the battery goes it is a cute and in style piece of junk.

I had a similar problem. I found that the charging port gets a little "stretched" after a while and the plug doesn't make contact the way it should when you insert it. I went and bout one of those universal chargers with the many different connectors and used one that is slightly larger in overall diameter with a slightly smaller hole. It worked fine after that. You can try wrapping the charger cord around the phone after you plug it in to see if it helps. It worked for me for a while but the charger plug eventually broke from fatigue. Hope this helps.

Sidekick id charger light comes on but phone wont the screen wont turn on but charger light is on


Sounds like you unit is not charging. The Sidekick ID's are notorious forthat. If you have a friend that has a sidekick ID or Sidekick 3, see ifyou can try their battery to make sure you phone is working ok.

If so, your best option is to get an external charger that has a sparebattery slot That way you can charge the battery outside the phone!They run about 25-30 dollars on ebay. an extra battery is a good idea so you can have one charger at all times.

Phone wont charge


Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

My sidekick wont work


It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.
