    I just bought a new battery for my sidekick 3 b/c I couldn't get my phone to stay charged. Now the new battery won't stay charged either. My phone isn't under warranty b/c I got it from someone else. I'm not wanting to send it back for an exchange b/c I'm not sure if they'll send me the same problem. What is wrong here and how much will it cost me to get it fixed?

The sidekick 3 are notorious for the charging port going bad.

If it under warranty, contact t-mobile and let them know.

A work around is to get a cradle charger with a spare battery charging slot. They go for about 30 dollars on ebay.

This will allow to to charge your battery seperate from the phone. If you have two batteries then one can be charging at all times.

It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with thte charging port. If you have a friend with a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID, try one of their batteries. If your unit powers on, the charging port has gone bad.

the repair for a charginf port runs about 80-100 dollars. A cheaper work around is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger slot. They run about 30 dollars on ebay and it will allow you to charge the bettery seperate from the phone.

Check out the following link for cradles.

Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.

The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here

A sidekick3 that dont turn on


The sidekick 3 has a known issue with the charging port. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can get it fixed for 90-100 dollars.

The other solution is to get a external battery cradle with spare battery charger and an extra battery. This runs about 40 bucks on ebay.
