The handset isn't defective anymore

It's really an easy fix once you know what to do. I just tried to be as concise as possible in case someone else wanted to try and fix a sticking power button without disassembling their 816.

In any case, I really like the phone (minus the issue with the power button) and it is basically the best device on Virgin Mobile (US) that was under $200 USD. I thought I'd try to repair it and if I couldn't get it working, then no harm no foul - I would just return it and hope the replacement didn't have any issues.

Man you've got some amazing patience. Happy that the phone is working fine for you. Cheers!
