Power button broken

Hi,

The power button on my ARC S has stopped working and I can't get the phone to switch on. I can send the phone back for repairs which is fine but I need to access the phone for my contacts and wondered if there was any tricks or tips to get the phone to switch on without using the power button.

Thanks.

So if you connect the charger the phone indicates charging but you can't power on from there?
