If you can, try a friends battery, either from a sidekick ID or sidekick 3. The Sidekick ID seems to be having the same issue as the sidekick 3 whefre the charging port goes bad. The best worka round for that is to get a charginfg cradel that has a spare battery slot.

Sidekick id charger light comes on but phone wont the screen wont turn on but charger light is on


Sounds like you unit is not charging. The Sidekick ID's are notorious forthat. If you have a friend that has a sidekick ID or Sidekick 3, see ifyou can try their battery to make sure you phone is working ok.

If so, your best option is to get an external charger that has a sparebattery slot That way you can charge the battery outside the phone!They run about 25-30 dollars on ebay. an extra battery is a good idea so you can have one charger at all times.

A replacement LCD Screen for the Sidekick ID runs from 45-60 dollars. That is on ebay which is the only place I have seen them for sale.

Here is a link for them:

Phone wont charge


Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

Is it a sidekick ID? If you bought if from t-mobile and it hasn't got wet or been dropped then call T-mobile CC. IT should still be under warranty. Do you have a friend that has a sidekick 3 or a sidekick ID that you can try the battery from(they are the same) What type of charging cradle, one witht the spare battery charging slot? Let me know....

Phone will not turn on


Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.

The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here

My sidekick 3 has problems


It sounds like the prong in the middle of the AC input is loose and therefore not making a good connection with the charger. What do you mean when you say "it won't come all the way back on?"
