Turn it on? You could give it a nice back-rub and dim the lights a little

While it's off, connect it to the charger and once it turns on disconnect it.

That does not turn it on, it only display a charge meter. What I would do is turn the phone off, pull the battery, and use a q-tip with high-purity isopropyl alcohol to get a little bit into the space around the button so that the gunk gets cleaned out. let it dry for 20-30 minutes and all should be well again. Then make sure you do not get dirt and other gunk on the phone.

You can take the back off of your phone with a torx driver and clean the power button with a razor blade or something similar that is REALLY thin. Build up gets around the button and makes it stick. You "might" can clean it from the outside with a very small flat head that will fit between the sides and clean some of that gunk out.

And void your warranty in the process.

I'm sure we are all rooted so our warranty is already voided.

Mine is well out of warranty, plus I bought it off Ebay.

But unless a metro rep pulls out a magnifying glass and examines the screws for marks, I think you will be okay. There's nothing on the inside indicating if you have taken the back off the phone or not.


Or you can just send your phone to LG and pay them for a new phone or to fix your sticky power button. lol

There is a cool little app on the Market that is free. I use it all the time.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.droidmania.lockscreenwidget

There are other apps like that too if you don't like this one. You'll see them when you go to that app's page.

Oh heh. 'Turn on' - I was thinking of turning on the screen not powering on the phone.

Move along now. Nothing to see here
