Re: phone wont charge
Did you drop your phone in water? or do you live in a humid area?
Your phone was exposed to moisture. That red dot is a moisture sensitive piece of tape that changes colors when it gets wet.
If your phone still works, but the battery won't charge when connected to a home charger, you might try charging it in your car. Its a different type of current and may work with a somewhat damaged battery.
If that fails to fix the problem you may need to get a new battery.

hold down the red button until it turns on....if you bought it used check for the dot on the inside of the phone under the battery to show a red or dark color mark....this means it has water damage and the phone could be junk
There was a known power issue with the Sidekick Slide. Motorola recognized the issue and say the fix was creating extra bumpers to keep the battery from sliding around. You may have one that does not have the extra bumpers and therefore your battery contact is weak.
First, make sure you are using a Motorola brand charger. No other chargers work with Motorola phones, even the cheapy ones from gas stations that claim they do. I would then check to make sure the battery is not swollen. If the battery is swollen, it is bad and needs to be replaced. Next, check to see if the phone has any water damage. Under the battery there is a white dot that turns pink/red if it comes in contact with moisture.
If none of the scenarios above fix your problem, I would suggest doing a warranty exchange.
Remove the battery!! Let the phone sit in a warm place for several days. Keep checking once a day or so to see if it will work. Always remove the battery while drying. If after a few days of drying it still is not fucntioning, it's wasted!
if the battery has got wet then it can be damaged usually there is a white dot on or near the battery if it is red its damaged or the battery has lost it power to hold a charge from normal use a new battery would solve the problem hope this was helpful:)
Was the phone dropped? Did it incur any physical abuse? Water damage? If not, try pulling the battery out of the phone completely. Look in the battery bay to see if you can find a white or pinkish red sticker dot. If the dot is white, there is not moisture inside the device. Call your service provider and you may qualify for a free warranty replacement device.
Also try and letting the device charge overnight. It may be time to replace the battery.
Hope this helps, as you only gave me limited info.
if you take the battery cover off is there a red dot inside beside the bottom of the battery? It may have had some liquid damage or the display chips inside may have bad solder connections... Let me know if i can be of any help!
ok, take out the battery and look and see you can see a white dot pice of circular paper, if it is red, your phone somehow got water in it, look at your battery(white dot paper) if it is red than you have water in you phone. now you need to dry it! leave it on your car dast board in the sun 24hrs or use a hair dryer ( use low heat) you must dry your phone and battery completely before the next step, Next step- find a good working battery and insert it in your phone, see if this will correct your problem, sometime the battery volt are very low or maybe the battery itself its bad, but make sure you put in a new battery to test this out, don't pay for the battery until you check you phone at the counter, ask for the right model for you phone.
