    Likely your only way out now is DFU mode - which you cannot enter because the sleep/power button is broken.

    You still have the ability to enter recovery mode if you can get the phone to turn on again - try connecting it to power (the standalone iPhone charger) with the home button held down.

    Otherwise your only other option is to pay to get the power button repaired. This is usually quite cheap.

    Depends on where you live I guess. I read someone in Sydney, Australia had this fixed cheaply and quickly (within an hour).

    That's correct -- if you go through Apple to get it repaired. Depending on warranty it would be around $100USD.

    That said, as Oletheros suggests, there are many local repair shops that can do this for like $5 USD and in about 10 minutes.
