Wont turn on as-in when you press the power button absolutely nothing happens?

Take the battery out and press power a few times, then put the battery back in and try again

Did you apply the OTA twice, if you did naughty naughty. You have a brick.

Also have you tried a battery pull?

As far as I know, bricking a radio update would atleast still allow you to turn the phone on, it would just be stuck at initializing the bootloader, correct me if I'm wrong anyone--

Also I would not bring it into a verizon store. Wait until the official OTA is released, then say you had a problem with that.

Just let your service continue as normal.

Also, silly question, I know, but have you tried variations of plugging it in/unplugging with/without battery?

And when you plug the phone in, does the charge light come on?
