    Broken phone volume down button now how to perform Reset?

    Something happened where when I powered up my phone the exclamation mark appeared and the only way to get it to boot proper was to hold the volume up button along with the power button. Volume down did nothing.
    Once booted up the volume slider meter would appear at the top of the screen with no way to close it and turning up the volume slider would only have it slide back to low vibrate on its own. Very annoying and unable to proceed with its presence.
    Last ditch effort I jabbed a pin at the physical volume down button and somehow the little button fell into the bowels of my phone.
    I felt some relief. No oh crap what have I done feeling whatsoever.
    The fight was over...I thought.
    But no, my phone began booting up like new... even faster.

    Sorry for the long tale but what's the best method when my phone becomes naturally unstable and needs a reset with no volume down button?
    Thanks... I like my phone.
