iPhone 4 Home Button Issues

Hey guys. I am experiencing some problems with the home button on my iPhone 4. Sometimes when i click it, it won't respond at all. And whats weirder, sometimes when i click it, it thinks i double tapped it and opens the multitasking bar.

Anyone else experiencing anything like this? I'm just wondering if its a defect or if its software.

Thanks!

Hey I've noticed this too but I think it's just not pressing the home button hard enough. It's extra clicky now..... So make sure you press it all the way down.

If you can replicate the problem fairly easily, take it to Apple. Maybe you just have a lose home button.

Make an appointment with Apple, if it is a bad home button they will be able to replace your iPhone.

I was having this exact same problem and took it in to Apple and got a replacement. Now I am having the same problem again on the replacement. I am debating about whether to get another replacement. I'm starting to think it is just an iPhone 4 issue.
