    Hi there,

    Today I was playing around with my friends iPod touch - the home screen button seems a lot easier to push to get to the home screen than my iPhone - I was just wondering, is this for everyone, or is it just my iPhone?

    And also, my friend surprisingly dropped his iPhone today, it has a crack at the top of the screen (not on the outside) although it is still functioning properly, is this covered under his warranty (got it in November) and if it is caused as 'accidental damage' - is there any way around this?

    Thanks,
    /jack

    Any damage to the screen is considered accidental damage and won't be covered under the warranty. :(

    That's just how they are. Why they're different, I don't know.

    The iPod touch home button is smaller in size, but I am doubtful that this is why...
