    Hello!
    I bought a used iphone 3g about half a year ago, and everything went fine up until about a month ago.
    Suddenly, the home button just stopped working, I hadn't dropped it, I hadn't been in rain, it just stopped working. I thought the phone just died, but I figured out that it isn't working when I saw I could turn the phone on with the power button.

    About a week after this, the speakers stopped working, the microphone still works, and I can hear sound if I plug headphones in.

    Does anyone know why this is happening? If it's fixable? If so, how?

    If it has no physical damage, go to Apple. If the geniuses see no signs of damage, they will most likely charge you a low price, or not charge you at all. Worth a try.

    Well yes, but I'd prefer to fix it myself, doesn't anyone know what the problem is?

    This thread is now bumped, because mods encouraging you to make a new thread every day instead of bumping your own is silly.

    The problem is simple, the iPhone has worn out overtime. You can't really fix these problems, call applecare and explain your situation. I know you live in a different country, but it's worth a try.
