Another option is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They go for about 30 dollars shipped on ebay. This will allow you to charge your battery external from the phone or if you have an extra battery , have one charging at all times.

The sidekick has an issue with its charging port going bad. Do you get the orange light when you plug it in?
It about 80 dollars to get fixed or you can do a workaround for about 30 dollars.
What you need to get is a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. This will you allow to charge your battery seperate from the phone. I also recommend getting a second battery so one can be charging at all times.
Here are some links for the charger and the batteries: Sidekick 3 Battery Charging Cradle New Spare Sidekick 3 Battery for Sale
Hope that helps
The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.
The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.
I don't know what you want to hear. If the USB port is broken off, you will either have to get a new phone, or open it up and solder it back on. There are probably 4 "feet" at the corners of the USB port that broke lose from the board and you will need to reattach these. Alternatively, you could find the same phone on eBay that has a broken screen or some other problem that leads you to believe it has a good ESN and a good motherboard. Buy that phone and swap the entire board out. RadioShack has a good tool kit that works with most mobile phones, it's about $15.
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.
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
