I found a solution . I had the same problem. All you have to do is buy a new battery and let it charge COMPLETELY without any use . Thats what I did and it worked . Hope it works out for you .

My sidekick 08 went completely dead and now when i plug it in says after it charges for a few minutes it will automatically turn on. its been a couple hours now on the charger and still wont turn on. does...


No, if you had that phone battery completely discharged for a long period of time, that will kill the battery, so from that point on, it will not hold it's charge. You will need to get a fresh new battery, that should solve the problem.

My sidekick wont turn on


corbolicous1-

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....

My sidekick wont turn on


Sounds like you unit is not charging. The Sidekicks are notorious for that. If you have a friend that has a sidekick ID or Sidekick 3, see if you can try their battery to make sure you phone is working.

If not, your best option is to get an external charger that has a spare battery slot That way you can charge the battery outside the phone! They run about 25-30 dollars on ebay and since you have an extra battery you can have one charging all of the time!
