I called and they wanted me to do a factory reset which i was not ready to do, then later found out i cant do.
How are you going to factory reset the phone if the power button is broken?
I took my phone in to Verizon on Saturday, and had a sales rep look at it and he then filled out the form to send me a replacement. My actual reason for going was to see if they knew of a local cell phone repair shop because I figured they would give me a "Your phone is out of its one year warranty so we can't do anything" runaround, but they simply shipped me a new one.
I since had gotten lucky and had the power button return to a working state, and I Odin'd a stock tar file onto it... And about an hour later the power button has failed again and this time seems to be for good. So my phone is in a usable state until I get my refurb. Hopefully you can get it to work, I definitely wouldn't give up on trying to get into download mode, it seemed like it just decided to work once after repeatedly trying so you might get lucky. I wish I could be of more help but I feel your pain.
