    Is the sleep wake button suppose to be practically flush on the iPhone 5 or is it suppose to be similar to the iPhone 4 and 4S?

    Mine is distinctively almost flush and hard to press. Not a big deal, but tonight I noticed that right below the button with the screen facing me I see a sliver of light bleeding through that spot. I'm thinking that area might be defected for my iPhone 5.

    How does everyone else's feel?

    Mine is definitely more flush than 4S but not hard to press. It'll get worse over time so you may want to get it exchanged while you can.

    They will easily hand you a new phone at no charge. All good, except gas money going down the drain to make the trip.

    What I'm hearing from friends seems to indicate what may be a wide magin for error in production tolerances when it comes to the fit of the button within the opening. It seems to favor looseness as opposed to the button binding, which makes sense.

    I just tried to get mine swapped out for this reason and they would not do it...
