    it will cost you over 80$ just to call apple. It will probably cost 200$ and they will give you a refurbished phone.

    No. However go into an apple store and speak to a genius and see if they are feeling generous. you can get a $200 warranty replacement.

    You can give AT&T a call, they might help. Probably not, but worth asking. If you have an Apple store nearby take it in, sometimes they cut you a break.

    Rather than having Apple replace it for $199, if neither of the above works try one of the independent repair places like - iResq shows home-button repair charge of only $32 plus shipping.

    Heres a tip. If you are girl, wear a nice revealing top. If you are a guy, come in and be a nice guy and just ask for help. Geniuses have the ability to replace any iPhone at any time, just gotta find one who likes you. Often with an issue like this they will replace it for ya at no cost with a refurb.

    PS: you can also try and offer beer. They wont actually take you up on the offer, but it makes them like you. =]
