Hi all,

The home button on my phone seems to stick when left for any period of time to the point where it is hard to press down the first few times.

Does anyone know what would cause this ?Would cleaning the button help ? If so what is the best way to do this ?

Thanks all !

    It should not be sticking, has it always been like this? If so it sounds like a defect in the build of that phone. If it it hasn't always been like this maybe something has been spilled on it?

    I think that may be your problem then unfortunately, you know how sticky that stuff gets when spilt!

    I have this problem also on my 3GS. I have not spilled anything on my phone, after my first week of using the phone both the home button and the screen response has slowed significantly. I have to press two to three time to get a response. Waiting to see if any software fix comes up or a hardware problem is announce.
