Confused help ASAP My sidekick randomly turning off AFTER I reboot it?

Yesterday my phone started acting weird. It would shut off for no reason and go from having a battery level of %80 to %15 within minutes. I'd be pulling the battery and hitting the power button every 2-3 hours. This morning, in addition to that problem, I had no data connectivity without wifi. I did a data factory reset and I had connection after but even before I downloaded apps again, it was still turning off on its own with no reason. Hours ago it got stuck on the loading screen, the phone logo would flash on the screen, but that's all it did and the phone was no use at all. I plugged it in to my computer USB to charge, the screen would show the battery and loading circle, then turn off and repeat. After about 30 minutes of trying, I managed to get to the Android Recovery 3e and I cleared the data and rebooted the phone, did this 3 or 4 times each, and after my Sidekick would seem to work normal, but I didn't have a status bar and the home screen was frozen, and then it would shut off again. I'm really in need of my phone, so anyone who can help it's GREATLY appreciated!

My phone has never been rooted.

I had very similar problems with my sidekick when I first got it. Do you have a warranty? You can just ask T-Mobile for a new one they'll ship one to you and you'll get it in a day or two.
