Re: t-mobile sk3

HI im a tech at the problem is the white screen is because of the many times you fliped the screen open or close and the flex cable which connect the screen to the phone is damaged...if you like an easy fix you can try to open the screen halfway and stick a paperclip in the pinhole on the right to soft reset the lcd if it doesnt work you can also try to remove the screws on the crome base and turn the screen upside down...check the leeds if they are gold there good if black you need to change the flex cable we can do it for you. just visit

I ve actually replaced my sk3 flip screen and still broke

i've replaced my flip for my sidekicks all the time..make sure that the screws are tightly in place..or maybe the film under the screen has been damaged,rubbed,smired or ripped this will stop the phone from displaying anything.

It may mean that that the connector to the lcd is loose.

Try following this procedure and see if it fixes it.

Other than that a new screen would work.

Sidekick screen blank

Call T-mobile if the phone is still under warranty. They may fix it for you.

If not follow this procedure, it usually works.

Sidekick 3 question

Your phone needs to be unlocked to use the text option. The code it is asking for is the unlock code.

All of the main sidekick features like internet, aim and email won't be available if unlocked and used on a carrier other than t-mobile.

text and calling will once unlocked though.

Camera problem

Yes. hello. i can answer your question. i was in the t mobile store looking at the sk3. They said take the battery cover off and look into the camera lense. then they said just to flick it. it worked. now they said that would only work if u purchased your sk3 a month or so after the unvailing of the sk3. (weather or not u had t mobile b4.)

Sad to say, this is a common problem with the sidekick 3.

The charging port probably has gone bad. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can have it repaired but it can be pricey.

A workaround is to buy a sidekick charging cradel with a spare battery charging slot. An extra battery makes this easier. This will allow you to charge your battery outside the phone.

Both will cost you about 40 dollars total on eBay.
