Sidekick wont charge

The sidekick 3 has a known issue with the charging port going bad. The orange light will usually come on but it doesn't charge the battery.

you can try www.cellulardr.com or you can do a work around that will cost less.

Most people will buy a cradle charge that has a built in spare battery charging slot. This allows you to charge the battery seprate form the phone. ?It is about 25 dollars on ebay. Its also a good idea to get a spare battery so you can have one charging at all times.

Sidekick 3 charging problems


Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way

Sidekick 3 Charger.


The Sidekick 3 is notorious for having the charging port go bad. New battery or charger doesn't help when this is the issue.

YOu can get it fixed for around 100 dollars or ou can get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger. Since you have an extra battery it will work well for you. They are about 30 dollars from ebay.

Sad to say, this is a common problem with the sidekick 3.

The charging port probably has gone bad. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can have it repaired but it can be pricey.

A workaround is to buy a sidekick charging cradel with a spare battery charging slot. An extra battery makes this easier. This will allow you to charge your battery outside the phone.

Both will cost you about 40 dollars total on eBay.
