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 3 won't turn on and i just got it today


Oooh, bad news. You probably got a sidekick 3 that had a bad charging port. Return for a refund if you can.

the Sidekick 3 has a charging issue thatcrops up after awhile. It will just not charge the battery.A good way to tell is if the orange light comes on but the phone never charges.

You can get an external battery charger for the sidekick for about 25 dollars that will allow you to charge the sidekick 3 battery separate.

Check out the following link to see what I am talking about.

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....

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.

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!

It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.
