    My new iPhone 5 only about 3 months old keeps taking screen shots when I press the lock button and I am not holding the home button when I press it. It means every time I go to lock the phone it takes a screen shot. I would appreciate any help thanks.

    Sounds to me like there is an issue that is causing the phone to constantly recognize the home button being held down.

    Are you jail broken? Maybe try a restore as new to rule out a software issue (make sure to Make a backup first).

    If a restore doesn't fix it you probably need a replacement from the apple store.

    Thanks for the help no my iPhone isn't jail Brocken. So the best thing is probably to contact apple
