    It's probably a good idea for you to seek mental health therapy.

    Thanks Bekah8, I've already been to the Apple store regarding this issue.  It really doesn't bother me that much to seek further repair options.  The button still works, but with a lot more force than normal.  When the new model is released it'll be all in the past.

    My iphone 4 power/sleep button failed too. Just like everyone else, wiggly loose, unresponsive. Failed a little over 12-months.

    My power button stuck after 1 year and 3 months. Apple offered a replacement of the phone for $160. Its really a big shame for a phone that cost almost 700 € to last only a bit more than a year!!

    So just filling in after my visit to my reseller who wanted to send it to the repair center. I preferred fixing it myself since you never know what bill you end up with.


    Followed iFixit guides for replacing the sensor/power and audio cable plus buttons so now I have a functioning power button AND got rid of my glitchy mute button in the same process.


    I would recommend solving this themselves and why not change the battery if your phone is really old as well. But if you have trembly hands like me, count on it taking a couple of hours to fix, plus I broke 2 screws in the process, don't tighten too hard


    Edit: cost around 28$ in Sweden, a lot less than the 150$ for a replacement.

    my button just jammed all the sudden too. my iphone is under warrinty still but i was wondering if they will actually fix the button or just give me a whole new iphone?

    This just happened to my iPhone 4 yesterday. The power button is stuck in the depressed position and won't pop out, but the phone isn't acting at all like the button is pressed.

    Add me to the list for broken power iPhone 4 is 18 months old. I was told $169 to replace it by the Genius bar. My phone is in perfect condition otherwise .

    My last comment got deleted so I will try to give more "constructive" criticism. My power button is also stuck/doesn't work anymore. It happened yesterday. I made an appointment with my local Apple store, so hopefully they will be able to replace it. I'm not sure if they will or not because naturally it's out of warranty.

  • suburbs303 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    From what I've heard, if it's under warranty, they will replace it. No where online have I found that anyone had their button "fixed" by Apple.

  • matthewfromplattsburgh Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    My iPhone 4's power button also just broke.  I started having to press it harder and harder, and now it doesn't work at all.  It happened at the very edge of the warranty, but I've been stuck at home after back surgery.  I'll try going to the Verizon store to see if they'll replace it, since there is no Apple store near me.

  • Kenscottphoto Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have an out of warrenty ATT iphone 4 and the power button just stopped working.  I never dropped it or anything, one day I decided to click or lock the phone and it didn't work.  The button no longer 'clicks' and wont lock the phone no matter how hard I try.


    Please fix this apple!

  • Robotaz Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Apple isn't going to do anything so get over it.  You can be in the 99% crowd of Apple sheeple and buy an iPhone 5, as if the same pitiful quality isn't going to sucker punch you again, or be in the 1% like me that gains their senses and moves on to a more reliable maker.  Apple doesn't care what you think.  Get it into your head.  It's like telling Exxon that you think their gasoline is crap.  LOL!  Right.

  • Martunes Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine went after a year and a half and Apple wants to charge me $160 to replace the phone. "Really!?" I said to the poor staff member, "I spend over $600 on a piece of technology and a part wears out after 16 months of normal use (I've never dropped it even) and you want me to spend $160 on your inferior product." I actually thought Apple was going to take care of me on this one. I have 4 Macs, 3 iPhones, Apple TV2 and an iPad 2.

    I went to the local repair guy and he did it for $60.

  • mp1040 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Guys the quick fix solution is to go into Assistive Touch, under Settings/Accesability...  turn it on and a small little tranparent button will appear - you can then use it as a software replacement for your power button - not ideal, but it beats buying a new phone if you're out of warranty like am... if you are in warranty, it'll keep you going until you get a new phone.
