Unhappy How to reset iPhone 4S without Menu button..?

PLEAAASEE HELPPPPP: My iphone just went off at like 50% charge, and though I stuck it on charge, absolutely nothing happened.

I pressed and held the power button and there is no response.

My menu button hasn't worked for a long time now so I cannot do the 'Power and Menu Button' simultaneous press.

How do I get my phone to work if I cannot get access to my menu button? I am so stuck!

Pleaaaase help me, or even provide me with any theories? I'll try anything

Default Re: How to reset iPhone 4S without Menu button..?

I believe the menu and power button combination is a soft reset which you only generally use when the phone is switched on (I'm sure that if you try it when it's off, it just turns the phone on like when you press the power button).

The only alternative I know to the home button is in the accessibility options, but a prerequisite is that the phone is actually turned on with the touch screen working...

This sounds like you have a hardware problem of some description, unfortunately the best advice I can give you is to go to Apple themselves (or known repair outlet) and have them troubleshoot it.
