    Hey everyone, my home button fell off of my iPhone 4S and I was wondering if anybody had any tips/trips/a tutorial on how to put it back? I have a button, but I'm not sure how to go about replacing it. Thanks in advance!

    Are you talking about the round button with the square drawn on it? Not sure how this could happen, because that button has tabs which keep it from falling off. If those tabs broke, not sure how you can fix it. Maybe try supergluing it to the pressure pad underneath it and hope for the best?

    I have a similar issue. My brothers 4s button fell of so we bought a new OEM home/main button. Don't know how to install it yet. All signs seem to head towards opening up the iPhone and like glueing/placing it on.

    The new one I got has 2 tabs on it.

    Kind of want to do it with minimal damage/intrusion so I can trade it in for Verizon's gift card for $200
