The button doesn't appear to be broken in any way. All night long as the phone sits next to my bed it continuously switches back and forth between silent and ringer mode, without me even touching it. From reading the forums it seems like other people have had this issue, but I haven't found a solution here. Some say back up the phone then do a manual restart. Others say it's faulty wiring. I'm hoping someone has a better solution, otherwise I might have to just go out and buy a new one.

It may not appear to be broken, but it most likely is. It's a fairly common failure on the 3G and the 3Gs. Happened to my wife's 3G, and to several other people I know. You can try a backup/restore, but I doubt it will make much difference. Sorry about that.

I am now getting this problem on my iphone 5.
Its so annoying as it disturbs me during the night continually vibrating as it switches itself to silent and back to regular mode even though it is set to do not disturb.
