    Default Crushed Power Button

    I dropped my phone yesterday so perfectly that it crushed the power button. It's completely useless now. I can't turn my screen back on when it turns off after a certain amount of time. I also cannot turn my phone back on after the battery went dead. Is there any other way to turn on the Droid Razr other than pressing the power botton on the top right of the phone? I have insurance and will be getting a new phone in 2 days, I just wanted to see if there was any way to turn it on?

    Doesn't the screen come on when you plug it in to charge?

    Yes. When I plug it in the "motorola dual core technology" screen pops up, followed by the 100% charged screen. But then it just goes back to being off. The phone is still fully functional, except I can't turn it on...

    Try using something like a pen to push and hold the power button and see if you can get it to turn on that way maybe

    The only other thing I can think of is to plug it in to a computers USB. It may turn itself on then.

    Na it won't turn itself on it will just do the same thing. I'm thinking that the button probably just doesn't work, if you can break it away or push it hard enough with a pen or whatever you may be able to activate the button that actually under neath the chrome button.

    The button was so smashed I was able to remove it completely. I tried jabbing random household items where the button is...and finally a nail file cleaner http://www.forever21.com/images/large/00030237-04.jpg came through big time. It turned the phone on! Thanks for all the suggestions.
