iPhone 4 home button
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.

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.

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.
