    Hi guys,

    So I've already seen that lots of people who experience this problem just walked in to an Apple store and got a replacement phone.

    The button works on when pressing it on the left side.

    The problem is that I live in South Africa where there is no official Apple store. I purchased the phone from overseas (Australia) and therefore won't be able to get a replacement from my carrier as I didn't get the phone through my carrier.

    What are my options?

    Thanks in advance :)

    It's a very common problem, which unfortunately will probably just get worst over time. You're going to need to get the lock button replaced to fix the problem.
