My sidekick 3 will not turn on

Your sidekick 3 will NOT charge anymore .
even if the orange light is on & it says charging

done charging switch the battery back to the other

Sidekick 3 Charging Question

I can tell you the sidekick 3 will not operate properly with out a back cover. In fact, if you remove the rear cover while powered on, it will post a warning message on the screen.
Because you tested and successfully operated the phone with out complication with a back installed I fell confident you should have have any problem with the phone when your back cover arrives.

Good Luck

So did you buy it new? If so take it back. If not, then you got a used one that has a bad charginfgport. The sidekick 3 is notorioius for it and the sidekick ID has an issue with it as well. The orange light comes on but the connection that charges the battery itself is broken. Check out www.cellulardr.com. They charge about 75 dollars for the repair or you can do a workaround that charges the battery seperate form the phone.

The following link shows it for the sidekick 3 but the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same.


I would also recommend a second battey so you can have one charging at all times. They runa bout 5 dollars on ebay.

Sidekick wont charge


The sidekick 3 has a known issue with the charging port going bad. The orange light will usually come on but it doesn't charge the battery.

you can try www.cellulardr.com or you can do a work around that will cost less.

Most people will buy a cradle charge that has a built in spare battery charging slot. This allows you to charge the battery seprate form the phone. ?It is about 25 dollars on ebay. Its also a good idea to get a spare battery so you can have one charging at all times.

Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way

check the link below for those

try a friends battery if that doesnt work then dont buy a battery and sometimes reseting the phone may work like turn the screen to 90 degress and put an earing or pin inside the reset whole

You can get this fixed through tmobile's 611. it just requires a simple soldering on the Motherboard or a replacement of the charging port.
