    This has just been annoying me, and I wanted to see if anyone else has issues. My meticulously clean iPhone's home button sticks to the edges sometimes, like the button is stuck under the phone's case. I think something like this happened to the PSP's square button. Anyway, it's easy to fix - just push on the other side of the home button, and it pops out. But it's really annoying having a stuck button when I want to use it.

    Anyone have similar issues, or have an idea how to fix something like that? I need a smaller home button! It's just getting caught around the edges.

    Thanks - A long time lurker.

    Ahhh...for a $600 phone that would really bug me. Mine doesn't have that problem, but I would see what Apple can do for you to fix this.

    One thing bugged me at first. The iPhone emblem and 8GB emblem engraved on the back of my iPhone looked blurry. It was most likely due to the fact that after it was engraved, the dust wasn't blown off enough. A few wipes with my anti-static cleaning wipes solved the problem:D

    I love this phone and I love :apple: !

    Okay, thanks for the advice. I'll bring this into the nearest Apple store and see what they'll do.

    Although I must note that I haven't had good luck with Apple service - I know they're generally great about these things, but my experiences have left much to be desired. Like when my iBook charger melted its own cord and nearly burned down my house, and they wouldn't refund it - or when my (same) iBook keyboard wasn't properly machined to fit into the case and keys were breaking, and they wouldn't replace it either.

    That said, it was out of warranty - this is two days from purchase. ;)

    And what's currently bugging me more is the lack of 64-bit support for Vista - hey, Apple, I buy your stuff like a crack addict. But sometimes we need both, right? Mac all the way for notebooks/laptops.

    Once again, thanks for the quick input.
