    Default HOME button sticky, how to loosen?

    My HOME butten is a bit sticky if I push it down on the upper half of the button... after just about 2 weeks of using it.

    Is there a way to loosen the button up so it doesn't stick anymore?

    hey

    Ive just started to notice that my home screen button is making a clicking noise and that it clicks slightly and moves left and right and up and down - it didnt do that before. Is this something i just have to put up with? Is this normal. My iPhone is about 3 months old. thanks

    Mine is sticky when I press it down on the upper side of the button. If comes back up with a very plasticky "click" sound after a second or so.

    About 3-4 week in use, wk38 model.

    Try rubbing a damp q-tip with a bit of alcohol on it and see if that gets rid of the sticky problem.

    Of course you need to power off the iphone before you do this, then dry it before you turn it back on.

    I would take it back to Apple if it is really loose. It is very hard to take the iphone apart and I don't know anywhere where they would sell you the button by itself.

    hey, ive had this problem with my iphone as well and its annoying. being loose makes it feel "cheap". have you found any solution? replacing the button maybe?

    No... I just am trying to live with it. It sure feels a bit cheap!
