    Getting it replaced now would be ideal, before 7.1 is released

    Yes I would get it replaced now, 7.1 can't be jailbroken before it is released.

    I'd be at the local Apple store right now getting a replacement instead of posting a thread:D

    Not sure why this was even a question. Common sense says to get it replaced ASAP.

    My iPhone 5 warranty is expired so I wouldn't replace the lock button but set a 'triple-tap home button' activator action to lock the screen.
    Also have reboot in control center.

    Only downside is that I cannot screen cap and if the phone freezes it's difficult to reboot.

    i ended up not taking it in. didn't want to deal with the hassle of driving an hour and a half to an apple store, and then having to rejailbreak and everything. the button works fine if i press the side closest the middle of the phone, so i just use it like that, ad after a week, i don't even notice it unless i purposely press the other side.
