touch your finger nail to your home button and gentle move it around in a circular motion. Do you hear and feel a slight crackling noise? The button works just fine and there is no noise when I press it normal. I was just playing around with the phone and I scratched over the home button to remove some gunk off of it and found this strange thing about my phone. is the button sort of padded on top or something? ---------- I just got out my 3gs and it doesnt do this.. I think I have a loose home button. I sure am tired of going back to the apple store for this phone.
