    Default [home button] Is it supposed to be loose?

    Hi, I just got my new iphone. Eventhough my home button works just fine, I noticed that the button feels loose, it moves around. Is it supposed to be firm? Im afraid it can lead to problems in the future. I dont know anybody else with an iphone in order to compare it, so I ask for your help.
    Thanks.

    It seems quite common. I've seen many phones with this problem, they are discussing it on the users forums at apple.com.

    I've bought five phones a two w41, a 44, a 46 and a 51 and every unit except the w46 has it. Some of my friends has it to.

    Of course it's a bit annoying but when it doesnt move more than 1mm maybe one can survive.
