    You can set it so that the volume keys power it on or so that it powers on when you slide the keyboard out.

    That is a great idea, how do I do that with the phone off?

    If you need to power the phone on pull the battery, make sure the charger is in a wall socket not a USB port, then plug it into the phone. Once the M Logo comes up put the battery in. The phone should boot.

    I tried it 10+ times before it finally worked. Thank you for the tip! How would I go about setting a different button to turn the phone on/off?

    Nothing can be done. You need to take it to a repair shop.
