Sidkekick 3 stops booting with the 4 Danger icons on a white screen

1) Remove the battery from your device
2) Flip open the screen
3) with the battery removed, press and hold the W key on the keyboard. Press and hold it and don't let go until I say so. :)
4) Put the battery in (you're still holding "W" right? Good). This is a little tricky to do but you can do it.
5) Keep holding W! :)
6) The device will boot to a screen that has a picture of a SK with Xs for eyes and stars spinning around it's head, like it's been clonked on the head. When you see this, you can let go of the "W" key.
7) After a few more seconds you'll see a screen that says "Sorry! Please restart your device by selecting the Reboot button. If this screen appears again, contact Customer Care."
8) Click the Reboot button on the screen, and hope for the best.

This *might* fix your problem. If it doesn't, there's no point in repeating the steps, just call customer care and have them replace your device. However, a lot of times I've seen an SK3 stuck on that screen, those steps above will fix it.

It's not a workaround, it's a fix. If that fixes it you won't have to worry about your device having a problem, because it won't have a problem anymore.

The only thing this "fix" will help with is if your device stops booting with the 4 Danger icons on a white screen. That's it. It won't do any other magical fix for any other problem. It's really *not* worth the time and hassle to try to use this trick to fix anything else, because if your device boots at *all* past those 4 icons, then this fix, she will do nothing. :)

Hiptop slide dropped in water, Need some software :]


Do you remember getting a hiptop account when you first got your phone? If so , sign onto 'www.hiptop.com.au' and sign in with it. I hope you know your account details. Your username should be what your hiptop email address was. Once you're signed in you should find all of your contacts ,etc on that site.
