    Pull battery and unplug from power source. Put battery back in, plug back into power source (hold X when putting the power source back in).

    Basically pulling battery = power off. Plugging it into a power source = power on.

    Ha, I thought it was an excellent solution. If that button is dead that sucks. Sounds like Cupfulloflol has exactly what you want though.

    Returning the phone? I'm hoping mine lasts until summer.
