    The lock button on my 4 is jammed and has been for months. It will work but you really have to push hard and has lost it's click. Just wondering what I should do.. Send it off to Apple? Try repairing it myself? Thanks

    For now .. go to settings... General.... Accessibility... and turn on Assistive touch. THis will give you a virtual home button on the screen.


    Apples way of fixing the home button issues.

    I think he's talking about the lock button on the top.
    Not the home button.

    FWIW, there's also a virtual lock button in those accessibility settings.

    Id you've had it for a year or less, or have a warranty on it, then take it into the Apple store and see what they can do.
