Mrs King-

If you screen is white on the sidkeick 3 then the cable going to the lcd is loose. You can reseat it and see if it fixes it. If not, then a new lcd will.

Here is the procedure to reseat the lcd cable.

My screen is white but the rest is fine


So, my guess is you may have dropped you phone recently?

The sidekick lcd connector comes loose sometimes and causes the white screen.

Follow the guide at the link below and you can try to reseat it yourself.

Failing that, you can buy a new screen and install it. They are like 30 dollars.

Here is a guide for that

Help me please!!


Take you unit to a T-Mobile store and find out what your options are.

If you have insurance coverage (and you should with that phone), it can be replaced with a deductible.

I have a feeling it has to do with a short in the screen cable.

Does it make difference in the display if the keyboard is opened or not?
