    The power button no longer works on my D2, is there any way I can turn it on still?

    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.
