    Hi my old iPhone APP button is not working:mad:.... I can press it but it takes forever to actually get it to click and exit APPS.

    What should I do.... Upgrade to a New 3G or get it repaired?

    What will Apple charge for the Repair? or do they just give me a new one on the spot?

    Do you mean the physical home button or the software App Store button?

    If its the physical home button:
    how long ago did you buy the phone. If less than a year, a repair is free. If its over that, then they'll probably charge you more than you can upgrade to the 3G phone for (depending on your location).

    If its the App Store:
    Just restore your phone.

    Book an appointment with your nearest Genius Bar.

    If they find the issue to be unacceptable, they will replace your phone on the spot dependent on stock levels.

    Your problem sounds more like a software problem, restore it first and see if that solves it. From what I am reading it looks like your Iphone software is lagging.
