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.

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.

Cell wont turn on


The T-mobile sidekicks have an issue with battery chargin port. It's not the battery or the charger.

If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, it runs about 90-100 to get repaired.

The other option is to use a spare battery charger and a extra battery. Always keep one charging while the other is in use. This option runs about 40 dollars from ebay.
