You should probably remove the back cover take out the battery and sim and then blow everything and put it back in

A warning keeps coming up saying back cover removed and is restarting itself.


The battery is not staying seated tight. This causes the warning and then for the phone to shut off usually.

Take a piece of folded up battery and put it between the battery and the back cover to help the battery stay seated better

Sidekick 3 Charging Question


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.


Good Luck
