My sidekick was freezing on bootup with an image of 4 icons side by side.. What I did to fix this was I did a hard reset, to do this turn your screen a little and on the right you'll see a small hole with an arrow pointed to it. Push and hold it for 10+ seconds with a paper clip. After this when the system reboots push @ + 1 + 0. Your side kick should now power up.

Sidekick 3 Charging Question

I can tell you the sidekick 3 will not operate properly with out a back cover. In fact, if you remove the rear cover while powered on, it will post a warning message on the screen.
Because you tested and successfully operated the phone with out complication with a back installed I fell confident you should have have any problem with the phone when your back cover arrives.

Good Luck

Help please!


probably not. If your phone will not turn on at all with a charged battery then the charging cradle won't help. When you try to turn it on, you get no lights or anything?

Check to see if the prongs for the battery connection point are good. Try pushing down on the battery and powering up the phone. Try this with both batteries if you can.

Let me know how that goes and we will try to figure this out.
