Re: sk3

Firmware crashed. T-mobile needs to reload the OS into your device. Its "blank" or corrupt. Only way to bring the device back is to flash it

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.

Sidekick id big red x

check t-mobile support for firmware update.

If you can't get one from tmobile support you will most likely have to send this one in for service.

My sidekick wont show up on my computer everytime i put my usb in it makes a ding noise

You need to put a memory card in before you can connect your SideKick 3 to the computer. It is very hard to find the "mini" SD memory card that you need for the SK3, so I went and bought the adapter for the "micro."
Please note that the SK3 is only compatible with memory cards of 2GB and less.
So once you put in that mini card, you can connect it to your computer.

Sidekick 3 has big red X on screen

You can try hard reset to see if that will clear it. With the unit powered on, pull the battery out.

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.)

Sidekick 3

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.
