Sorry to hear that. The Sidekick 3 is notorious for the charging port getting busted.
If you take it apart, you can see that it is soldered in 5 places to the motherboard. Maybe one of those solder joints came loose.
This link will show you how to take apart your sidekick.

Another option is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They go for about 30 dollars shipped on ebay. This will allow you to charge your battery external from the phone or if you have an extra battery , have one charging at all times.

I don't know if you have alredy tried this, but you can try plugging the wall connector in upside down. It worked for me.
