    My iPhone 5 lock button will not work all the time. Sometimes to unlock/lock my phone, it could take 1-10 clicks to unlock/lock. Is this a problem for anyone else. I was going to go to the Apple Store to get a new one since the issue is just plain annoying. #teamapple :apple:

    Dueit!!! (Do it)

    Just don't forget to make an appointment before hand and back up your data! Also, try a restore first. As Apple always goes that route first. Then secondly, just make sure your data is backed up somewhere!

    Sounds like the button itself is defective. I had the lock button go bad on my old iPhone 4S and my dad's went bad on his iPhone 5. Apple replaced both no questions asked. Definitely take it in!

    Make sure you back up your iPhone before you take it in though, when they replace it you'll lose everything and if you don't have it backed up you'll lose all data.
