    Hi

    Anyone know where I can clear home button stickers for my white 4S?

    Tried searching and I didn't find anything apart from coloured ones with animal designs :D

    Many thanks

    I couldn't find where to buy them alone, so I bought a Spectra Wrap skin from TheLuckyLabs because they include home button protectors.

    I also use the ones from the Luckylabs Spektra wraps.

    Also you can get them in sets with the SGP Full body protectors.

    Another alternative is to get the Zagg Invisible shield screen only, it includes a button protector. You can then use the screen protector to cut additional home button ones.

    What is OCD about that? You do know that the plastic home button is much easier to scratch than glass?

    Actually I use a LuckyLabs on mine to make it easier to press. It makes it slightly thicker so it sits flush with the screen after I put a screen protector on it.

    I have never liked the little concave area where the home button was. It is really the only thing I truly don't like about my phone. I simple sticker fixes it though so I'm good.

    The best skins ever kit comes with one. I ended up getting the full kit just for the button.

    The home button is made of soft plastic, it is quite easy to scratch.


    I searched ebay and only found colored covers no clear.

    I used to have a home button protector but dirt/lint gathered between the screen protector and the button protector so I just took it off. It only costs $15 for the part itself if you wanted to replace it.

    Yup the home button is cheap, but it is a nightmare to replace. I did rather polish it. Here is a tutorial on how to replace it:

    Order a clear set of Lucky Labs spectra wraps. Comes with a clear home button and a clear apple logo for the back. You can use the apple logo in conjuction with a rear back skin that has the apple logo cut out.

    Thanks. That is what I am using now. But the button sticker is beat up and I prefer my spectra wraps in color. Wish they all came with a clear button.
