Dead Phone?


The D-wade sidekick 3 uses a charging port. You should see a little round plug in on one end of the phone. you will need to get a charger from eBay. They are about 3-5 dollars shipped.

The usb cable is only used for transferring data, no charge capability exists for it

The phone will not turn on


Sarah-

The previous poster has a good point, If you have a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidkeick ID, swap batteries and see if they work.


THe sidekick 3 is notorious for the charging port going bad. It is tricky though, because the little orange light comes on but no power is actually getting to the battery.

In this situation, I recommend a external battery charger and a spare battery.

Check out the link below for those.

Sidekisck 3 charging problem


Sounds like it could be the charging port, or maybe the cord itself. You could do one of two things for your first move. Go buy a new cord from T-Mobile, I say this because I bought an MP3 player off ebay, and the cord didnt work when it got here, and instead of sending it all the way back to where it came from, and paying shipping charges on that not to mention the waiting for it to get here, I went and bought a new cord, and it worked fine. Your second option is to just contact the seller, tell them it doesnt work, and go through the hassle of having to send it back, and wait for a new one. The choice is really up to you. If you want to make sure it is the cord first, you could take it to T-Mobile and have them test it. Then go from there. Good luck.

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!

Chargingb the phone


If it is a single pin charger that just plugs into the phone it sounds like the pin inside the phone has broken from the board which is why you have to wriggle it or wrap it up to get it to work.
this can be repaired but costs are determined by your repairer.
