    So I got an out of contract iPhone 4 off craigslist.. I turned it on and did the basic functions (that you can do w/ no service) to make sure it worked before I bought it and it did..

    Ordered my straighttalk service and got it ported over.. Now the effin home button only works when it wants to. I don't know if it's hardware or software but it's very intermittent! I tried canned air, I tried pushing the charger up while it's plugged in (and it did work when I pushed up) but then didn't when I unplugged / didn't push up..

    I've tried a factory restore, rebooting, etc and it's still intermittent.. I'm thinking it needs replaced but wanted to see if anyone had other ideas.

    Had the same issue on my last iPhone 4, ended up taking it to my local Apple store to be replaced.
