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

    my phone had about 40% when it died i will plug it into wall now and i stated that the power button wasnt working the home button works fine. plugging into wall doesnt turn it on though.

    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.
