    I have a 16gb 3G ~ 1 month old. Have noticed the following 2 problems and was wondering if anyone else has similar issue. (1) My home button is very erratic - sometimes takes several double clicks to go to home screen. (2) once in a while when asked to enter my security code to unlock, I see the ipod volume control appear in the top of the screen. I tried capturing the screen shot but when I attempt, it clears. I also restored as new phone and problem still there. Have an appt with apple on Sunday. Thanks

    The random volume icon popping up is a known issue; the home button, not so much. Might wanna take it in.

    I haven't noticed those issues. I just noticed the other day some horizontal lines across the center of the screen:mad:

    Is this when you push the sleep/wake button to sleep the phone?

    Try restarting the phone and then restoring it! Should solve the irk....
    Btw does the home button work when you press it real hard or is it random?

    The home button might be an issue but the volume thing is definitely nothing that you'll have to get it replaced!

    I have to push the home button very hard. Its very hit and miss. I did a complete restore as a new phone per Apple and problem did no go away. Plan to get a replacement -

    Update...

    :D I went to Apple store this AM and was impressed. Told them about my sticky home button, someone looked at it and gave me a new one no problem. And it was in a white box - asked the genius if it was new - he said yes. Looks feels and acts new. First apple warranty experience was excellent -
