I found, after dropping my phone, it turned off completely and wouldn't restart with the power button. Plugging it in auto-restarted it, and, upon restart, had no contacts, the date/time were wrong, and everything else was apparently gone that I'd put in... Waiting about 10 min for it to connect to GPRS, seemed to resynch the data from online.

The memory is just a temporary storage of your data, still depending on your battery life.

My sidekick 3 won't turn on and i just got it today

Oooh, bad news. You probably got a sidekick 3 that had a bad charging port. Return for a refund if you can.

the Sidekick 3 has a charging issue thatcrops up after awhile. It will just not charge the battery.A good way to tell is if the orange light comes on but the phone never charges.

You can get an external battery charger for the sidekick for about 25 dollars that will allow you to charge the sidekick 3 battery separate.

Check out the following link to see what I am talking about.

That is the right button. The charging port is probably bad. This is a common occurence on sidekick 3's. Does the orange light come on but it nevers seems like it is charging?

The best thing to do is get a edocking cradle that has an external battery charger. It will allow you charge the battery seperate form the phone.
