    Hey everyone,

    I just noticed that when I press the home screen button on my iPhone, it takes about 2 or 3 seconds until it responds. I compared it to my brother's iPod touch that has iOS 4. My iPhone is slower than his. Can anyone explain this or give me some advice on how to fix it? Thanks

    It hardly takes a second when the screen is already unlocked. In standby mode it takes around a sec to show the lock screen

    For example: when I am in safari an I press the home screen button, it takes about 2 or 3 seconds to respond. My brothers iPod doesn't even take 1.

    That never happens to me, did you try a hard reset?

    My second guess would be the number of apps installed on your phone and are any apps running in the background? If nothing works, apple should take care of it.

    Did you transfer from a previous iPhone?

    If so, do a restore and setup as new.

    They would replace it for a new one. Dont be afraid if you are having a problem. No point ruining your experience.

    I did another reset and it seems to have gotten faster. I called apple care and they said that it was normal since than iPhone goes through a lot be always checking for things such as call and text messages. It's ok I guess. I still think my iPhone is awesome.
