Is it a sidekick ID? If you bought if from t-mobile and it hasn't got wet or been dropped then call T-mobile CC. IT should still be under warranty. Do you have a friend that has a sidekick 3 or a sidekick ID that you can try the battery from(they are the same) What type of charging cradle, one witht the spare battery charging slot? Let me know....

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.

Help please!

probably not. If your phone will not turn on at all with a charged battery then the charging cradle won't help. When you try to turn it on, you get no lights or anything?

Check to see if the prongs for the battery connection point are good. Try pushing down on the battery and powering up the phone. Try this with both batteries if you can.

Let me know how that goes and we will try to figure this out.

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.

Wont charge


well i suggest you take it back to the shop where you got it from they will most likely send it off to the specialists free of charge , because it is a technical problem .

The most likely reason of this problem is maybe your putting the charger in to hard and its pushing it back so its not alowing it to charge? It is quite a bad phone in that aspect
