    only lasts 2-3 months yet again my home button responds intermediately. basically my last iPhone last 3 months and this one 2 months its driving me nuts i wish there was an alternative this is really starting to piss me off as my local apple store is 30miles away and its inconvenient. Last time i got a damaged iPhone too and yet again had to drive back, fuel isn't cheap at the moment in the UK either....

    I guess you use it 50% more due to the double tap.

    or possibly 75% more because before you didnt need to double tap for multitask and now you do plus the extra 1 tap for double tap LOL anyways i see there is a fix by replacing the ribbon for a more stronger fix. but has mine is under warrenty im not going to mess around

    Would really recommend jailbreaking and installing Activator. It gives you ability for soft home button, like double tapping the status bar, or any other gesture.
