How will you ever make it through the rest of your life if something as trivial as this bothers you enough to try and get the phone replaced???

Mine does it to , i wonder if it is normal or not. I am debating wether or not to replace it for just this issue, i already had to go back for stuck pixels. The only problem with this one is the button. Any one get a PERFECT iPhone or am I being to picky?

Because people need to wake up and be realistic, it's not a million dollar piece of german made medical equipment. It's a $200 chinese made telephone.

Not only that, but a few years from now it'll be in a landfill somewhere.

The button wiggles... move on.

I can wiggle my home button a tiny bit side to side and up and down on my new 4S. It makes a tiny clicking noise when I do so.

Is this normal?
Mine is solid through and through. It shouldn't wiggle or make noise at all.

This just started happening on my iPad 1. I've had it since launch. Not that big of a deal. Just hoping it won't bug whoever I end up selling it to.

No way, bro.
Wow, you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. What's wrong with the physical button? If anything, it's much better.

I've seen Android phones and it takes a few clicks for the those touch sensi-crap buttons to work. Plus, it's easier to control a physical button since those touch buttons don't work the first time. We also need a solution to hard reset the phone if it freezes up. Touch button don't work as well as the hardware button. One of the things I hate is that if you accidentally touch (not even press) those touch sensitive buttons, and it somehow managed to register your input, you go elsewhere. That's just super annoying.

There's nothing wrong with the physical button to be honest. It's much better in my opinion for the reasons I've said above.

By your posts, I'm not really surprised you're saying this. I just want to say that I'm not a fan boy, whether you believe me or not. If I could only buy an Android for whatever reason, it would be a Droid X(2) just because it has physical buttons.

Not anymore... it did, then it was dropped and the shattered glass made the stuck home button seem moot. What are ya gonna do. The ladies love the glass.

Now I have a similarly fragile 4S, I cannot wait until they give up the kitchenware material. And to think i've been using cell phones for years and this is the first one I've dropped... figures

^ Nice.
I have no idea what you said.

But basically, I'm not sure what you were expecting from breaking your phone (or any device for that matter).

This issue is really annoying for me. I have a bit of electronic OCD. My home button moves around, anyone replace and have a better one? I have the entire month to decide, guess I should see if it keeps annoying me and exchange based on that. But I didn't just pay $500 for a phone that feels like it was made improperly (if this is a defect)

Mine does wiggle.

Right now I can't make it wiggle.

Lol, this is odd. Does it have to do with temperature?

Mine is solid through and through. It shouldn't wiggle or make noise at all.
I second this general, no wiggle action on my iP4 although it does make the click sound when pressed. I figure this is normal & intended behavior.

Mine doesn't wiggle, but the button itself is flimsy. It feels like it could cave in. Could that be what your implying?
