    Hey everyone. Just a question for anyone that has any knowledge of opening up and fixing iphones. My home button suddenly is really hard to work with. I would press it, but nothing will happan. But if i blow into the dock of the iphone, it will work for about 15 miniutes and ill have to repeat the process, could this be dust? do i have to replace the home flex cable? what can i do to fix it if its dust? thank you in advance:D

    As long as you can blow in it and get it to work, Apple will not replace it!:p

    Yeah... there's nothing better for electronics than blowing bacteria laden moisture into it.

    sure worked for Nintendo. I'm pretty sure electronics don't get infections anyway.

    Looks like the OP has the iPhone 4Sdd

    ...You know, the iPhone 4S drunk dial.

    It helps prevent you from drinking and dialing (or txting). It's obviously got a built-in brethalyzer test.

    Was this court-ordered OP?
