My P1i wasn't dropped or damaged. Once the battery ran down the phone swiched off and continuously vibrates. Vibrating stops when battery is removed, however when it is replaced and I tried to charge the phone, the vibrating persists and I can't switch the phone on. If the charger is in and the battery is removed, vibrating also persists.

Double Check that battery is not the problem when battery falls below 5% it starts off to blink in all SE Phones .. i think that was the case with your phone .. with such low battery u can’t power up pi on phone
Put the phone in Vibrate and ring mode so that it can ring. If you have already done so, then do you hear other sounds such as play mp3 and stuff? If you can't then it can be an issue with the speaker. If you can hear other sounds except the ring, then this is most likely to be a firmware issue. I remember downloading the P1i firmware from the Sony website for my friend's phone. You should download the Sony Ericsson Tools(SETools) for this purpose. It can be obtained from the link below. http://www.setool.net/support/SETool2/
Download and install Update Service on your computer to keep the software in your phone up-to-date and ensure optimum performance from your phone.
When the download is complete, an Update Service shortcut will be created on your desktop.
While still connected to the Internet, click the ‘Update Service’ shortcut icon on your desktop
Sony Ericsson window will pop up and downloading will begin. Allow the downloading to run complete to 100%
Another Sony Ericsson window showing different countries’ languages will pop up, select your preferred language.
Sony Ericsson ‘Welcome to Update Service’ window will pop up, showing ‘Exit’ on the left-hand side and ‘Start’ on the right-hand side.
Click the ‘Start’ icon and select ‘Agree’ on the ‘Term of Use’ page that pops up
Select your phone type and click on ‘Continue’
Highlight your specific phone type and select ‘Continue’
Follow the instructions as shown below:
-Make sure your phone is fully charged -Connect the USB cable to a USB port on your computer -Turn off your phone -Remove and reinsert the battery -Press and hold the ‘C’ button down while plugging the USB cable to the computer -Continue to hold the ‘C’ button down until the instruction number ‘7’ on the Update Service comes up (i.e. Instructing you to ‘Release the ‘C’ button)
Allow the update to run to the end
When the system informs you that the latest update has already been installed on your system, click on ‘Continue Anyway’
Click ‘Yes’ to all subsequent questions
Allow the update to fully run to the end
When update is complete, disconnect the USB from the computer and phone
Remove and reinsert the phone battery
Power on your Sony Ericsson P1i phone
NB: since the phone is not powering on, you may not be able to know whether the battery is fully charged. Hence, you will need to use a Sony Ericsson Deskstand. Connect the Battery Charger to its slot on the Deskstand and the USB cable to its slot simultaneously. This enables the battery to charge while the update is also running.
