    Stopped working last night. Did a factory reset just to see, nada. Took SIM, memory card and battery out, nothing.

    I am ok with technical things, but I am not a wiz, so if there are lots of things that need to be done, I need steps :(

    I do not have insurance and I cannot get a new phone until October. I cannot afford to pay $300 for a new unlocked phone at this point.

    I have someone that will take it apart for me, and replace the power button, but the only place I've found so far wants $15 shipping. Now i don't mind paying, but that's a little crazy.

    Sorry to hear about the broken power button, wiltedmagnolia...:(

    Take your time and keep looking if the cost is still too high for you. Perhaps there are some do-it-yourself videos that might make you comfortable enough for you to try?

    Best of luck! :)

    I took it apart myself, 7 screws, nothing to it. I don't know what was wrong with it still, maybe it had just come loose, but it's working now :)
