    I dropped my tracfone ZTE 665c Valet on the power button, breaking the internal button off from the motherboard. During my disassembly I didn't notice any easily accessible sim card. The phones issue is that it is in a powered off state and there is simply no way i can find to tell the phone to turn on. I happen to have another working ZTE Valet.

    Is there some way I can pull the data off my damaged phone or trick it into turning on without the power button? I have data on the phone that I can not afford to lose. Im about to attempt to de-solder the buttons from the volume controls and try to solder one onto the power button spot on the motherboard, but id rather not accidentally overheat a component and fry the board.

    Any suggestions? I cant find any information online aside from an unhelpful user manual.

    Try plugging it on charge, when it vibrates or starts to boot to show the charging symbol hold what ever the others button (except the power button) that puts you lyour phone into your bootloader
