    hi , today is my first day with my iphone and i love it.

    one thing i have noticed has to do with the home button.

    my home button isn't completely rigid. it moves around, ever so slightly.

    most people won't notice it, but i have a keen instinct for these things.

    has anyone else noticed this on their iphone?

    thank you!

    First, its a button, its physical so it has to have some play/clearance.

    Second, I hope your not looking for perfection. The iPhone is a cheap, mass-produced phone. So being mass-produced you will find some bad ones. If its clearly a defect, call it in and get is fixed/replaced.

    unity, thanks for your reply.

    yes i understand it is massed produced, but i am just wondering if other people have this and then that why i don't have to return it if it is going to happen.

    thank you!

    Hi,

    I noticed the same thing on mine, but I think there's nothing to worry about.
    As say earlier, it's a physical button.

    It would bother me. take it back and see what they say, compare it to floor models.

    Thats the best thing you could do. If its really out of spec, you will know.

    I did just that this weekend, b/c mine was slightly loose as well. EVERY floor model I tried had a home button that was slightly loose. Apparently, this is not uncommon at all. I even talked to one of the associates, who said his home button does it as well.

    the newest 2007 models have a looser home button
    the older 2007 models have a tight home button
