    Did it get wet? If so, read this from an AC member:

    If it didn't get wet, try removing and replacing the battery, then see whether it will start.

    If it got wet more than an hour ago, it's probably too late. My usual line is that if your phone falls in the water at the same time your pants fall down, take the battery out of the phone before pulling your pants up - that's how little time it takes to ruin the phone if it's wet. (I wrote that article that belodion linked to, btw.)

    If it just got dirty (you didn't specify what you meant by "dirt" - if it fell to the ground on bare earth, where there's no grass, that's also "in the dirt"), it's probably the shock of falling that caused a problem, and you'll have to bring it to a repair shop for an estimate. It could be anything from a loose power switch connection (5 minutes of labor. most of it for opening the phone and putting it back together) to a cracked motherboard (probably close to or more than the price of a new phone).
