Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone
The phone is new to me, it was purchased as a working phone. i plug it in and the orange light confirming that the phone is charging lights up. the orange light is on and now nothing happens. i try to turn it on and nothin happens. every once in a while a circle made of circles lights up in the middle, then it disappears. also every once in a while the wheel lights up green then stops. if i unplug it every thing just stops. please help me and email me at email@example.com
Every time i plug it in a orange light appers and when i take it off the charger it stops and it wont turn on.
this is the exact same thing that happens with mine...i have the sidekick 3 lrg edition....but usless if i cant get it to start up..
The sidekicks are notorious for having bad charging ports. The orange light comes on but doesn't actually charge anything.
A cheap workaround is to get a sidekick charging craddle that has a spare battery charging slot. They are about 30 bucks shipped from ebay.

Heres what i would say. let it charge for more than hr, and this bring it up to speed..if not i believe the battery may be defective, i just experienced this problem last night..the battery happen to be defective, then put another battery after awhile i went to sleep woke up, and it wouldn start...i let it charge for a while and it was good as new
