    So I received my iPhone 5, and the lock button seems loose, are the lock buttons suppose to be like this? If not is it worth getting a replacement for it, is that something apple can fix?

    LoL! I know the feeling sometimes.

    IF you're unhappy with your iPhone, take it to the apple store and see what they can do for you, why make a thread asking about it here?

    I put a large portion of the blame on Apple, the way they hype up the product, causes people's expectations to climb to unreasonable heights. When you have people looking for the perfection Apple creates, this is what you get.

    Take it back as fast as possible. Apple will likely replace it.

    Gee, I don't know, because this is a forum dedicated to all things iPhone? If you don't like it, don't read it.

    Make an appointment with an Applestore and get it replaced. It's your right and you'll feel a lot better about your purchase. I replaced my launch day scuffed phone for a aesthetically flawless one and got battery life with this unit to boot.

    I have two iPhone 5's and they are both loose for me - but so was my iPhone 4S lock button. I'm sure you might be able to get it replaced but I think many of these are like this so you could end up with another.

    People need to come to a forum to ask what they should do when they are unhappy with a product? I guess common sense isn't so common.

    It's not that I don't know what to do, it's that I'm seeking advice too further my decision. But I ended up taking it in and they told me its the way it was cut that some iPhones have a lose lock button.

    going to try to get a replacement today about that issue. the lock button vibrates and makes a loud noise. defeats the purpose of putting the phone on vibrate

    My 4S buttons are solid. I'd replace. Really seems the 5 has the most hardware issues out of all the iPhones. Seems like they dropped the ball a little when it comes to quality control.
