    Just noticed tonight my lock button on my iPhone 5 sticks. Seems to work only half the time. It's been in a commuter since day one and never dropped.


    Any ideas to solve this?

    I would not try and do anything with it except that if you near an Apple store I would take it to them since you are under warranty and let them look at it for a fix or possible replacement. Have a good day.

    The lock button on the five seems to be a pain the butt for some.

    My brother in laws was doing this about a month ago. I figured it was just being hard on the phone.

    Now mine is doing it too, luckily a trip to the apple store and they will give you another one.

    They'll give you a warranty exchange at the Apple Store. I had the same problem
    with a 4S that got increasingly worse and I literally had to press my finger down as
    hard as I could for the button to perform its function. They exchanged it without any
    problems.

    Had the same issue with mine. I was in and out of Apple within 10 minutes with a new replacement. Make an appointment though. Good luck
