My sidekick id froze up on me for a sec, then it came back, all except the volume was working and it froze up again. I wasn't able to turn it off so I took out the battery. When I put it back in all of my 102 contacts were gone, and so were my text messages and my myfavs. All gone. How do I get it back, or was it just the phone being crapy, because it's not the first time its froze up on me. Please help me out.
Just put the battery back in and once it connects and you have the G up in the top right corner, everything will load back onto your phone. that happened to me today and i was so mad, but everything came back.

(dont be freak out if everything gone, it will come back in fews so give it some times to have them back up again *contacts, notes, etc etc*)

If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.
The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.
if you wiggle around the flexi cable in back of the screen it might flicker on again.
mine was faded but i was still able to see the screen .. i messed with it & it worked.
if you don't trust that way rotate the screen 90 degrees
unscrew it [MAKE SURE PHONE IS OFF!] your going to need a torx wrench, a really small 1.
take the screen off it & undo the back side of the screen & fix the cable that way.
Try holding down Menu-jump to get to the emergency screen. Then hold down on menu-shift-Q and release. It will ask if you want to reset phone. IT WILL RESET AND DELETE EVERYTHING!!!!. It will be like new. Except sim. This works with sidekick 2, not sure with others.
