Hey guys. I am experiencing some problems with the home button on my iPhone 4. Sometimes when i click it, it won't respond at all. And whats weirder, sometimes when i click it, it thinks i double tapped it and opens the multitasking bar.

Anyone else experiencing anything like this? I'm just wondering if its a defect or if its software.

Thanks!

Hey I've noticed this too but I think it's just not pressing the home button hard enough. It's extra clicky now..... So make sure you press it all the way down. :)

If you can replicate the problem fairly easily, take it to Apple. Maybe you just have a lose home button.

Make an appointment with Apple, if it is a bad home button they will be able to replace your iPhone.

I was having this exact same problem and took it in to Apple and got a replacement. Now I am having the same problem again on the replacement. I am debating about whether to get another replacement. I'm starting to think it is just an iPhone 4 issue.
