Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Hi - regarding sidekick 3

It did not work. The screen was still black. My guess is that maybe the screen ribbon is damaged because the charge light indicator turns orange when I put in the charger into the sidekick so it can't be the battery itself.

    I finally found someone that had a Sidekick 3. I used her battery in
    my phone and it still wouldn't turn on. When she put her battery back in her phone, her phone immediately turned on.

    Do you know what may be the problem? Could it be the screen ribbon cable that is damaged or the internal hardware?

If the screen is black all the time most likely is the ribbon, but if it is just the camera, the the steps to do is the ones on the post, i've fixed a few that way i fixed one that took like 10-12 times before it started working again.
the sidekick 2 "skii" is known for the cam. to lock up on it.

Screen flashes white then goes black


Sounds like a ribbon cable to the top screen maybe damaged. Upon startup, the ds does a systems check, any kind of failure e.g. a ribbon cable or a faulty screen would cause the console to shut down again. Presuming everything else works charging etc this is most likely to be the problem.

Sidekick 3 Problem


okay i have a sidekick 3 as well and what you need to do is put the paper clip in the hole again and hold the power button at the same time for approximately 3 seconds. This is a hard reset. Now the bad part is that this will reset all of your data back to factory default. If you need further assistance or this does not work click the ask me button next to my name and we can work on it from there. Thanks.

Sidekick ID


The sidekick ID has the same type of charging port as the sidekick 3, which are notorious for going bad. The easiset thing to do is get a charging cradle that has a spare battery slot.

Wont charge


well i suggest you take it back to the shop where you got it from they will most likely send it off to the specialists free of charge , because it is a technical problem .

The most likely reason of this problem is maybe your putting the charger in to hard and its pushing it back so its not alowing it to charge? It is quite a bad phone in that aspect
