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.

Sidekick id charger light comes on but phone wont the screen wont turn on but charger light is on

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

If so, your best option is to get an external charger that has a sparebattery slot That way you can charge the battery outside the phone!They run about 25-30 dollars on ebay. an extra battery is a good idea so you can have one charger at all times.

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

Hey

The sidekick has an issue with its charging port going bad. Do you get the orange light when you plug it in?

It about 80 dollars to get fixed or you can do a workaround for about 30 dollars.
What you need to get is a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. This will you allow to charge your battery seperate from the phone. I also recommend getting a second battery so one can be charging at all times.
Here are some links for the charger and the batteries:

Phone wont charge

Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

Sidekick 3 wont turn on

if the light indicates but its not charging. one other thing you can do is a soft reset.take out your SIM card and batter for 30 seconds then replace the SIM card, and hold on to the R button and at the same time replace your battery, your phone should turn on and restart twice. but it will come on.
