    Default [iPhone 3G] [2.0.2] Home button not working properly

    Hi guys,

    Is this something of a bug in the software of 2.0.2 or did I get a faulty iPhone?

    The symptoms:

    The home button works occationally... Sometimes I have to switch off the phone and leave it switched off for a couple of minute to get the home button back "on-line"...

    Should I do a restore in iTunes and see if it helps?

    The button seems fine physically, the phone was bought yesterday... It clicks just fine. But sometimes nothing happends, and then again it can work flawlessly for a while.

    -Andreas

    Is it a new one?
    Have you take off the plastic cover?
    Try to restore the firmware.
    If it is still not working properly. You should bring it back for an exchange.

    definetly bring it back. I work with iPhones and the problem is a small board where the home button should go. I had to fix this 2g iPhone that had a very slow home button. It took about 5-10 secs to respond or you would need to press it really hard. It was such a bitch we replaced the whole frame(it holds the screen + chip)

    Take it back and as it is within 14 days of purchase you are entitled to a brand new iphone (not a refurbished one from the bottom drawer) so take the box, etc with you.
