My sidekick is going crazy wont turn on anymore

Ok so heres problem yesterday i was talking on my sidekick everything was fine then the person on the phone hanged up on me and i went to look at my phone and it locked up. so i turned it off and turned it back on then it worked for a few mins then locked again. so i took out my battery and tryed it again and it wouldnt even go past the first screen it shows when it powers up the first box is all i saw. so then i pluged it into a charger and it turned on and worked fine so i let it charge to 100 percent it was at 70. i unplugged it used it for about 3 hours then it locked up again during a phone conversation(texting had been working the whole time to by the way). so now it wont stay on at all and the min i take it off the charger it locks up iam not sure what to do the battery may be the problem but if it was wouldnt it make the screen blank not lock up all the sudden. Also when it sits there with the one box some times the trackball will flicker green and there will be a line across the screen. and the box will go dim and then dark again.

and i do not have warranty on this phone any longer so iam screwed if my phone is messed up. so please help me guys

This problem was said a lot by some users when the first batch of sidekick 3's were released last year. What you do is do a soft reset @ + 1 + 0 and then when it shuts down quickly hold down the W and when you see it restart you should see the sidekick 3 picture with a face on it and stars above its head, and from there you select English and you follow what the screen says to help you get past the bootup screen.

if you continue to have a problem, try removing your memory card and see how the phone works for a while.

Why cant the person Im trying to talk too hear me?


Ok I got this one, have you tried talking to them? If not try that. or try speaking louder, Maybe yell into your speaker until everyone around you stops and looks at you like your crazy or something, then tell them "look away fools, you dont know me!!" Or check your manual and turn your mouthpiece on or un mute your mouth piece

My sidekick 3 won't turn on and i just got it today


Oooh, bad news. You probably got a sidekick 3 that had a bad charging port. Return for a refund if you can.

the Sidekick 3 has a charging issue thatcrops up after awhile. It will just not charge the battery.A good way to tell is if the orange light comes on but the phone never charges.

You can get an external battery charger for the sidekick for about 25 dollars that will allow you to charge the sidekick 3 battery separate.

Check out the following link to see what I am talking about.

Sidekick 3 charging problems


Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way
