  • Remove the Battery. This is one of the most important steps. Don’t take time to think about it, electricity and water do not mix. Cutting power to your phone is a crucial first step in saving it.
  • Dry your Phone. Obviously you need to remove as much of the water as soon as you can to prevent it from getting into the phone. Use a towel or a paper towel to remove as much of the water as possible.

Do you want to know if it's your cp is still working?

First, make it sure it's totally dry without any water or moist before turning on the device.

Second, if it's OK and you know it's out of water inside and the cp was total dry, turn it ON.

Third, if you're not sure and you don't want to take the risk by turning it ON, it is a better option for you to bring it into any cp service center near you.

Cheers

Sidekick black


I am going to assume that this device is out of warranty. Fair warning, less experience, if I were you, I wouldn't even touch it for repairs on my own. Call you local T-Mobile dealer and ask to recommend a local cell phone fix-all store. Or you can do like I did and provided you backed everything up, go to EBAY. Believe it or not, the cost is about the same and in most cases less than 1/2 a new one.

Screen not working


Lisa-

I am sorry to hear that the new sidekick 3 is not working for your son.

Is the screen white, blank, or just hard to see?

If white, then the flex cable needs to be reseated.

How to fix a blank white Screen on a Sidekick

If dark blank, then reseat the lcd assy itself and see if it works

Reseat the Sidekick 3 LCD Screen

If hard to see the screen, then the backlight is dead. A new screen is needed for that.

Replace the Sidekick 3 LCD Screen

I hope that helps

The easiest way, though a bit pricey, would be to use T-mobiles own service:

Other options would be to try third party unlockers, though they may be a bit on the shady side. Software unlocking is possible, though it is also possible to brick your phone using untrusted software or by using the software incorrectly.

Perhaps the battery is not in correctly, the phone was dropped in water, The phone is broken, or you're pressing the wrong button.
