    So, this evening I was using my iPhone, no problems, all is well... then tonight, I went to plug it in, as I do every night, and I wanted to play some games before I went to bed, so I hit the home button... nothing.. odd I thought.. so I hit the power button instead, no prob, turned on, slid the slide, went to a game, got bored with it, so I thought I'd try a different game.. hit home NOTHING... so I thought I'd shut it down.. sometimes simply shutting things down causes it work again.. well it didnt... it turned on fine, but no home button...

    so I thought I'd try a complete reset.. (hold home and power button, wait for it to shut off etc) NOTHING.. because the home button isn't working... so I just plugged it in, and hit restore from iTunes... nothing...

    can someone tell me what the heck is going on here.. I'm not happy at all.. I can't just up and take it to the nearest apple store, as its 3 hours away.. if this is an issue that requires a new Phone, Rogers wants to hope they can give me one, or I'm done with them.. but I hope theres some other way to fix this, as I really can't afford to not be with my phone (for work reasons)

    i think the home button is broken. you need to go to apple and get it repaired.

    like mine is really indented, i feel mine may break soon, but it wouldnt be from abuse, it would be from just...use

    but since urs doesnt work already, remember when the iPhone first came out some people put the retro apple symbol as their home button? you should check that out haah

    yea, i can't do a DFU as the home button doesnt work. I did a iTunes restore, still no luck... guess I'm hitting up the Rogers store today.
