    So plug it into the wall. You need to get power going to it. Without a working power button that is the only way.

    bad news just got back from the apple store and the guy said there is no current running thru the battery he suggested i get the whole phone replaced or try to fix the dock connector and power button. FML had that iphone 3g for 3 years i guess it was a good run R.I.P.
