Ahh thats right well
heres what you do:
1. Take out battery.
2. Press and Hold on to the letter W. Don't let go.
3 Put the battery back in while your still holding it.
4. In a few seconds it should bypass that little black box, and have
like a pictures of a knocked-out sidekick (confused in a way). Then you
let go of W.
5. It'll then ask you to reboot and you do so. This should work. I heard that it might not work for all, but for most it does.

Your sidekick 3 will NOT charge anymore .
even if the orange light is on & it says charging
it WILL NOT charge . Try using an old sidekick
&just charge the battery on it & then when its
done charging switch the battery back to the other
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.
So did you buy it new? If so take it back. If not, then you got a used one that has a bad charginfgport. The sidekick 3 is notorioius for it and the sidekick ID has an issue with it as well. The orange light comes on but the connection that charges the battery itself is broken. Check out www.cellulardr.com. They charge about 75 dollars for the repair or you can do a workaround that charges the battery seperate form the phone.
The following link shows it for the sidekick 3 but the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same.
if the screen is black all the time most likely is the ribbon, but if it is just the camera, the the steps to do is the ones on the post, i've fixed a few that way i fixed one that took like 10-12 times before it started working again. the sidekick 2 "skii" is known for the cam. to lock up on it.
