    My Droid 2 power button is broken and my battery has fallen out. How do I turn it on? It doesn't automatically turn on when I plug it in the the outlet charger. Please help!

    ok this works for me
    with phone off
    plug in usb connected to computer
    when red and white M logo is displaying press camera for a couple of secs
    phone reboots

    this doesn't work with just a charger

    edit: don't need to press camera button just connect to pc
    can use charger just press x when red and white M logo is displaying

    Irony of Irony, a day after I got on this post, my cat knocked my phone off the computer table and guess what? My power button is broken. I turn my phone on now with the Volume Up key and Screeble app turns the screen off after I lay the phone on a flat surface. I refresh the phone from time to time with a cont alt del sequence to reboot the thing.

    I am not going to bother with a replacement, as I have ins, because I do not want to start all over with a new phone and I am due for a upgrade now anyway. I just can not decide what phone I want to replace it with. I tend to lean to the D3 because of the keyboard but I want to look at the IP 5 this week too.
