Re: side kick 3

The sidekick 3 has a charging problem on some models.

It's not the battery or the charger but the battery charging port.

Call t-mobile if it is under warranty.

If not you can use a work around that charges the battery outside the phone.

Sidekick will not charge. The charging light is on but when I try to turn on it will go through the starting thing then shut off right away. My computer also says it dosen't recognize it.

Unless it starts/boots up, the computer will not detect it. It seems that the battery of the side kick is dead and that is the reason why it does not hold charge. Try booting it while charging. It may boot up. It needs a new battery. Please supply one.

since the sidekick is a tmobile specific phone odds are you wont be able to unlock it...and if you know someone who can it probably wont be free because they are such a complicated phone to unlock.

Side kick not charging at all ?

the Sidekick 3 has a charging issue that crops 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.

Dead Phone?

The D-wade sidekick 3 uses a charging port. You should see a little round plug in on one end of the phone. you will need to get a charger from eBay. They are about 3-5 dollars shipped.

The usb cable is only used for transferring data, no charge capability exists for it

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.
