I can not find out how to turn my screen brighter like i can t see my screen in the dark but i can see my keyboard


What you are describing is the backlight is burned out. Th eonly way to fix this is to replace the scree.

The best place to look is on ebay. They show up on there from time to time.

SIDEKICK ID PROBLEM


1) Insert the Cingular SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.

Sidekick ID ??Water Damage??


I had the exact same problem with my sidekick. I believe that tm is taking advantage of their customers and charging for defective phones using a phoney water damage claim. I will never sign with tm again. I am going to call the manufacturer of the sidekick-just to *****.

Sidekick 3 LCD


Nope, It has the same connector but they are pinned out differently so they won't work. I know because I experimented with my sidekick 3, sidekick ID and Sidekick 2.

YOu can get a replacement LCD from ebay, They run about 40-50 dollars.

If you wan't to try here are some instructions.
