and yes, I did a restore.
but it doesn't do much against mechanical issues...
hey now, whatheck was just trying to help. I know plenty of people who keeps the plastic wraping on their electronics while in use. Granted, they are mostly asians around my parents' age, but still, there's plenty.
And sure it can cause mechanical issues. It's an extra layer of material on top of the button which will require extra force to be exerted to achieve the same pressure.
That being said, it does sound like a pressure problem with button which means you should be able to get a new replacement from Apple :-)
