Sidekick LX won't charge


This is a COMMON problem with the Sidekick. Not just the LX but the whole line. You'd think they'd have solved it by now. Anyway, I have a WORKAROUND to bypass your problem. It won't fix ibad charger port, but it will charge your battery for only $5. Go to ebay. Type in "universal cell phone charger". Dozens of these should come up. Most are some variant of a generic China made round charger. They have clip on electrode probes which touch the contacts of your batteries and holds them to recharge them. They work not only with most cell phone batteries, but with digital cameras and pdas too. Anyway, order one that has a good instruction sheet or description. I wasted a whole day recharging one of my batteries the wrong way because the instructions didn't come with it. Generally, the more buttons, the better. These chargers are cheap and dinky looking, but THEY WORK! I charged up a Sidekick 3 battery with one. The only real issue is that they take some time to charge up . At least my SK3 battery did, simply because it's so big. I'd get another battery on ebay and TWO chargers for a total of under $12. Some of these chargers are as cheap as $3 each. I'd have one bat charging and another ready to go just to get around the longer recharge times. For $12, beats the hell out of the $35 I'd have to pay for a Sidekick 3 battery charging cradle!

Why won't it charge??


I had a similar problem. I found that the charging port gets a little "stretched" after a while and the plug doesn't make contact the way it should when you insert it. I went and bout one of those universal chargers with the many different connectors and used one that is slightly larger in overall diameter with a slightly smaller hole. It worked fine after that. You can try wrapping the charger cord around the phone after you plug it in to see if it helps. It worked for me for a while but the charger plug eventually broke from fatigue. Hope this helps.

Cell wont turn on


The T-mobile sidekicks have an issue with battery chargin port. It's not the battery or the charger.

If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, it runs about 90-100 to get repaired.

The other option is to use a spare battery charger and a extra battery. Always keep one charging while the other is in use. This option runs about 40 dollars from ebay.
