IPhone just died! What do I do!

My Iphone has just died on me, was working fine a few minutes ago! I know everyone says press down the two buttons together, but my lock button has broke on my phone and I havent been able to lock it in a while! Is there any other way I can get it back on or does this mean a trip to the apple store? Will they be able to fix it? :/

Yes but next time don't get an iphone.

Normally it would reset if you pressed down the lock and home button but since yours is broken try plugging it to a computer and see if anything happens. This happens to mine sometimes and the lock/home button trick always works. If plugging it in doesnt work you might need to take it to the apple store or whatever your cell phone provider store is (att, verizon, sprint, etc)
