    This is like my 3rd iphone replacement (one had got stolen :( and I had to bring my last one back because the camera was messing up literally). So I was rushing so much I didn't take time to thoroughly examine this new one to the core (the other buttons are tight as a whistle lol, and everything else works).

    BUT, the home button as I can put it is somewhat loose, wiggly, creaky, what ever you call it, when I move it up and down, is when i hear that annoying sound, but it responds.

    I had returned my first iphone because of this issue, but it seems like I'm not the only one, and I am beginning to wonder if this is something common I should even worry about?

    I really don't want to swap it out again, because i live far from the apple store, and I might get a 5k refurb.

    If I bought a outterbox defender, would i probably still hear the creaky sound, or does it come with a solid home button layer?

    Or should I order a replacement home button, and have a local iphone repair shop fix it?

    I mean its seems like some phones do this and some dont, so I was wondering would the outterbox stop it.

    so its not anything to worry about? why do some of them have them and some dont? This was a brand new replacement, straight out the black box.
