    OK sorry if this has been posted. I searched here and google.
    Another Home Button issue, but I have not found any answer on this.

    I have a 8GB 2G. The home button will not wake up the phone, but the power/sleep button will. I know it sounds familiar.

    Please hear me out.

    The home button works fine once the phone is powered on with sleep/power button.
    It will also wake up the when the power cord is plugged in.
    It will close apps.
    It will pull up ipod on home screen.
    This is all with the power cord plugged in or after i press the power/sleep button.

    It just will not wake up the phone when on battery power, I always have to press the power/sleep button.

    I have tried restoring it with and without jailbreaking. Same issue.

    I have upgraded and downgraded firmware. Same issue.

    This is second hand phone and of course out of warranty.

    I'm stuck and can't find an answer anywhere.
