    Unless I make sure to apply pressure directly to the center of the button, it doesn't respond very accurately. On my iphone 2g I could click on the edge of the button or click anywhere really and it was always responsive. On the new phone I have to make sure that I push down at the center or else I get nothing. A little bit of a hassle when using only one hand and especially hard to get used to coming from the 2g. Are the rest of you experiencing the same?

    Yeah, my home button sucks. No click, just mush.

    I appear to have a different problem - oversensitive home button. In my shirt or pants pocket it is constantly activating the sleep/wake function and this is draining my battery. Anybody else with this problem or have a suggestion?

    My home button works great...very similar to my 2G home button with a nice feel...but not exactly a click...
    edit: well I'll be darned...when I just pushed my home button it did in fact "click"...

    I upgraded to the 3GS from the 2G and feel the exact same way... your eally have to make a point to click right on the center if you want to feel the tactile feedback.... not like the 2G where you could click any part of the button.

    My 3G and 3G S Home buttons have both been perfectly fine.
