Yep, the button still works. I wish I could ignore it, and I've tried to turn a blind eye for the last few weeks but I can't. Not for a phone I paid big bucks for that is just a few months old.
It's like driving a car that is perfect, but one day you notice the door doesn't close like it used to. It still works as a car, but I know that's not how it left the factory...
Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone who has experienced this tried their own solution?
My hearing is on the "weak" side from driving airplanes for 35 year, so I miss a lot of sound unless I use a hearing aid. I've had my IP for 8 or 8 months now and was unaware that the home button actually "clicked". I discovered this after reading this thread by holding the phone very close to my ear when I press the home button.
IF your home button "sticks", you might consider using a little (and I mean a little alcohol on it). I'm certainly not recommending put more than a tad on the home button and the fact that it's alcohol should/might prevent any water damage (I'll leave that to the experts to decide.)
While it's not the same, I find my wheel on my Mighty Mouse occasionally sticks. A little alcohol rubbed on the ball seems to free it up. My wife tells me I should wash my hands more and she's probably right. Who knows what kind of sticky stuff I'm rubbing on my Mighty Mouse.
However, I would have to go with the other replies here and just ignore the problem as long as the home button doesn't stick in the "pressed" position.
