    I have had every model of the iPhone so far and never noticed this before so I am a little concerned that my iPhone 4 may be faulty, when I place my finger end flat on the home button it has a very slight movement right to left, all my other ones have been solid, is this normal on this model or do you think it could be loose and a future problem in the making.

    Thanks

    I would bring it to an Apple store. If you wait too long they will not replace it for you if it is actual problem. Just checked my 2 year old 3G and there is no movement. Sounds like a random hardware mishap.

    Mass production even for Apple can have a few quirks now and then. My only downside is I ordered from an AT&T store and really should have gone back to the Apple store to order.

    That's the case with mine as well. Didn't realize
    that was an issue. Does this happen to anyone
    else with i4s?

    Mine is solid I tried sliding, pushing on only one side, and wiggling in all directions and no clicking or feeling of it being loose.

    Mine is loose as well. I called an Apple Store and asked if this would be covered under the warranty and she said it sure would be. Should I wait to take it in to see if Apple starts releasing new hardware with the antenna issue fixed?

    Both my girlfriend and I have a little play with the home button on our iPhone 4s. I checked my 3GS ( it's getting boxed up and shipped out this morning ) and it's rock solid.

    I'll wait to see how the button changes ( if it changes ) before I go looking to swap it. A little play in the home button really doesn't freak me out.

    There shouldn't be any movement until you actually depress the button.

    My home button stopped working entirely within 8 hours of receiving my iPhone4. Pre-ordered it at the AT&T store on the 15th, first in line the morning of arrival on the 24th, it worked fine all morning then I noticed I had to start pressing the home button a little harder each time. By 5pm it was unresponsive. AT&T asked me to go to the Apple Store (since AT&T had 0 stock) and they replaced it immediately. No problems since. I did not notice if the home button was loose or not on the first phone. The new one is solid.

    Mines is a little loose. On the weekend of launch the home button became unresponsive at times. I had to press the home button a like four or five times in order to close an app or to pull up multitasking. I called apple and he told be to try a clean restore and set up as a new iPhone before I went to an apple store. I was at work at the time and when I got home the button began to respond better. I held off on the restore and going to an apple store for replacement. Since then my home button seems to be working normally so I figured I would wait it out. I thought I was the only one having this issue. I'm interested to see how many people come out of the wood works with this same issue.

    My iPhone 4 home button moves a little. Is this something you should really take back? Seems like kind of a hassle to return.

    Have you guys ever played with iPod Touches? Most have a little play in them on the home button. I really dont think this is a issue and most are over reacting
