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.

My sidekick 3 will not turn on


Your sidekick 3 will NOT charge anymore .
even if the orange light is on & it says charging
it WILL NOT charge . Try using an old sidekick
&just charge the battery on it & then when its
done charging switch the battery back to the other

My sidekick 3 won't turn on,it's plugged in but nothing's happening


I think you are going to need to call T-Mobile, and have them troubleshoot it, or take it in, and see if they can figure it out. Make sure the battery is in all the way, and its fully charged. Other than that I dont know. Good luck hope this helps.

Hey


The sidekick has an issue with its charging port going bad. Do you get the orange light when you plug it in?

It about 80 dollars to get fixed or you can do a workaround for about 30 dollars.
What you need to get is a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. This will you allow to charge your battery seperate from the phone. I also recommend getting a second battery so one can be charging at all times.
Here are some links for the charger and the batteries:

Hope that helps

If the orange light is coming on, but not charging the sidekick then the charger port is probably bad.

It's about 80 dollars to fix at cellulardr or you can do a work around and charge the battery seperate from the phone.

check out the charging cradle here:

Battery


Nomad182-

So did you buy it new? If so take it back. If not, then you got a used one that has a bad charginfgport. The sidekick 3 is notorioius for it and the sidekick ID has an issue with it as well. The orange light comes on but the connection that charges the battery itself is broken. Check out www.cellulardr.com. They charge about 75 dollars for the repair or you can do a workaround that charges the battery seperate form the phone.

The following link shows it for the sidekick 3 but the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same.

I would also recommend a second battey so you can have one charging at all times. They runa bout 5 dollars on ebay.

Is the orange light coming on but you have no power? If so, then it is probably not charging. The sidekick 3 charging port is notorious for going bad. The little contacts that send power to battery come loose.

Find a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID and try out their battery. If it powers up, it is your charging port.

The easiest thing to do is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They run about 25 dollars off off ebay and allows you to charge the battery seperate from the phone. A spare battery is good too as it allows you to have one charging at all times.

Sidekick 3 wont turn on


if the light indicates but its not charging. one other thing you can do is a soft reset.take out your SIM card and batter for 30 seconds then replace the SIM card, and hold on to the R button and at the same time replace your battery, your phone should turn on and restart twice. but it will come on.
