    My iPhone 5 backlight sometimes comes on very dim when I hit my home button. I have to lock it again and then unlock it for it to come on full brightness. It's random and it has happened several times now. I am probably going to take it in the Genius bar but was wondering if anyone else had similar problems with their 5?

    I dont think the sprint or verizon or at&t version has anything to do with it.
    Its a defect and you should bring it to Apple to have it replaced.

    I have this problem on my 64 GB AT&T iPhone 5. It's completely random though, but it doesn't bother me at all. I mean, it doesn't happen enough for me to want to get it replaced yet.

    I kinda feel that way too. I'm just afraid I'll go in tomorrow to get a replacement and it's worse off than the one I have.

    I know that it has nothing to do with the carrier but i was leaving sprint anyway so why bother having it replaced.
    Bought the verizon Version and have not had a single problem with it not even the power button rattle the last one had.

    I had an issue with auto brightness. But it reads the ambuint light around you. So if its sitting in your pocket a dark place and pull it out it didn't get a chance to read the light yet. I had to do a new restore with out doing an iCloud restore and it works fine. Verizon AT&T sprint mean nothing it's the phone not the carrier

    Yes, glad the new one didnt have that issue.
    Was just saying its not related to carrier version but most likelly just a hardware defect.

    This is exactly when it happens, right as I'm trying to bring it out of my pocket.

    ----------

    It seems like it's quite a common problem and I would hate to replace my phone and get another one with an entirely different problem. I think I'll just stick with it.
