How do you unlock a sidekick without deleting anything?


Hi. I can help. Your unlock code depends on your phone's IMEI or serial number. You can call your service provider and sometimes they will give you the code for free.

My phone deleted all of my contacts, pictures, emails, ect.


Are your pictures, contacts, etc. on the desktop interface still? Go check your desktop interface. If it is, pull the battery let it sit for a moment and place it back in. Turn on the Sidekick and Danger's servers should put your stuff back on your phone.

Sidekick ID does not have the SD card slot, so it can't be an issue with your SD card. This was the first thing that came to mind.

Hope this helps,
Bill

When my sidekick 3 dies i have to reset the time


Do you have the Sidekick data plan from t-mobile? If not, the data is not being stored on the Danger servers and will delete when you phone dies. You also need that for the web, chat, and email.

Sorry

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

Is the orange light coming on but you have no power? If so, then it is probably not charging. The sidekick 3 charging port is notorious for going bad. The little contacts that send power to battery come loose.

Find a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID and try out their battery. If it powers up, it is your charging port.

The easiest thing to do is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They run about 25 dollars off off ebay and allows you to charge the battery seperate from the phone. A spare battery is good too as it allows you to have one charging at all times.

Sidekick deleted all contacts


When the sidekick does a hard reset, it drops all the data until it resyncs with the data servers. When the battery is loose, this is what happens

It sounds like the battery is loose. What you need to do is power the sidekick off. Then firmly reset the battery and place a folded up piece of paper between the battery and the battery cover. This will keep it firmly in place.

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.

Something terribly wrong with my sidekick


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