    Hi everyone,

    Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this? I'm already sorting mine out with apple, going into the store this saturday as the advanced exchange i was offered wasn't really practical for me.

    I was just finishing up my break at work and pressed my lock button before slipping it into my bag. I noticed the lock button didn't feel the same, but didn't have time to investigate then. Fast forward to lunch time and I noticed the lock button didn't click. Because I had the apple case on, the button on the case still depressed but there was no contact with the button.

    Took off the case to find my lock button was flush with the phone. It basically went in last time I locked it and didn't come back out. The phone wasn't registering it as a click otherwise I would've forever been on power off screen

    Its a launch day 7 Plus

    I've got no issues with this as apple are sorting it, but just interested to see if it was a wider spread problem

    My 7+ seems to be fine, but I haven't even had it for a full month.

    Haven't heard of this issue. I also have a launch day 7 Plus.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Nope, mine with my 7 plus is solid.
    In place and clicking good.
    They'll take care of you though.
