Usually a new lcd assy will fix this problem. It is fairly inexpensive and easy to do. The screens run about 35 dollars.

Here is the procedure for the removal and replacement

I have a question?..


theyre right. it wont work for Verizon to use the full features on the sidekick. because, verizon and sidekick plan are totally different from each other. and only thing it will works for you that you can use the sidekick are sms(text) and to make a phone calls with a verizon sim card in and that pretty much it. 
and also, because a sidekick is restricted to tmobile. of course, but only things differently about it is the sidekick plan is only will works great for a sidekick itself that will definitely benefit you better to have/use the full features such as email, mms, notes, and etc. 

i mean, are you trying to use a sidekick with your verzion sim card in it or what? if so, then pretty much just like i stated right above.
sorry. :[

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.

If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.

The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.

Sidekick wont turn on


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 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.
