Turning off an Iphone without using the top button? Possible?


May 5, 2010, 10:22 AM
Basically, the top button on my iphone (which locks and turns on/off the phone) has ceased to work a few weeks ago. Restore done and nothing doing...

Is there a way to turn my iphone off that doesn't require using that button? I'd like to reboot the thing, as it's been searching for a signal for the last hour, but I'm not sure I can without simply draining the battery...

If anybody has any ideas, let me know. :-)
