Power button won't click. What are my options?


Android Expert
So, since my last couple of cases for this thing had fallen apart, I have had to keep the phone bare (other than just screen protector). Now, it's power button is basically... I don't know the word for it? It will respond to a press, but isn't clicking. And I have to press harder and harder to get it to respond.

Part of me doesn't want to get rid of this phone, in large part due to its universal compatibility. But what am I supposed to do if I can't power it on or off?

On a related note, trying to find a battery for this thing at the original price I'd seen them is impossible. eBay and Amazon are both listing it for $40+ for third party when a genuine Motorola one used to cost $15. What gives?
