My lock button on my 4s just started "sticking" today. I must press it very hard to lock/unlock the phone. I looked up my Apple Care and it looks like my 1 year has expired, so basically I am SOL. Is there an easy DIY way to fix this issue, or should I deal with it until my March upgrade?

has the device been near any moisture or soda to cause it to stick?

Maybe compressed air to clean out the grooves may help.

Not exposed to anything. Was working fine this morning, literally stopped working 10 minutes before I posted this topic.

EDIT: Now the lock button ceases to work at all

Just to make sure it's not iOS, have you rebooted the phone. It may seem you have to push the button in very hard but there maybe a delay on triggering it in the OS. But it very well could be something stuck in there.
