    Hey all,

    Picked up a black 64GB iPhone 5 this morning from a Verizon corporate store. It was so busy and noisy in there that I didn't really have a chance to check out the phone until I got back home. Once I got home and it was somewhat quiet, I noticed that my home button has this odd plasticky pre-click before I actually press down the button. It does it every time and it sounds very cheap (like a creaking samsung phone lol). I also bought a iPhone 5 16GB for my father and his home button is perfect and doesn't have this odd pre-click. It barely takes any weight to make the button click. Has anyone else experienced this? The button works, but the click is really annoying and I really think that for $400 it shouldn't do this (when the 16GB is fine).

    Would the Verizon reps replace it because of this even though the button isn't broken?

    Other than that, I am enjoying the bigger screen and all the other i5 features

    Thanks!

    The Apple store would, but not the Verizon store. Take your dad's i5 and show them a side by side.

    I'm 200 miles away from an Apple retail store. If I were closer, I would definitely do that.

    I had the same problem !

    I called Apple and ask for a replacement, which I got in 48h
    Sent the faulty iPhone back to Apple and that's it. Free of charge !
