    Broken power button

    So my power button has become recessed. I am wondering is there a way to fix it. With out taking apart. I have like 4 months left on my contract so spending the 90 dollar deductible for asurion is not totally worth it. So anyone have any ideas.

    Sounds kinda funny, but just run the battery down let it auto shut off, plugging in would turn back on.
    To unlock it just slide the keyboard open.
    Kinda a hassle but worth $90 for a few months, u decide... some rom's have custom unlock features such as pressing home to unlock...

    posted tomorrow using the space time continuum app on my D1...

    new server if any of my links are dead notify me, I got new links!

    I remember reading quite a while ago that someone took their Droid to a phone repair shop and had the button repaired/replaced and it was very inexpensive. I seem to recall one person saying it was about 20 bucks and another saying it about 50 dollars. Good luck.

    Happened to me. Twice. I returned my first Droid due in part to this problem, got a replacement from the VZW store, and within 4 months, the off button had again become recessed. Still kind of usable if you really work to jam it down in there, but overall... a disappointing experience.

    If it's rooted you can flash Cyanogen or Liquid - both have an option to reroute the power button to the volume rocker
