    Hey Guys,

    I got my first iPhone 3gs yesterday! Guess what!? The freaking sleep/wake button fell off today. I went to the apple store, but even though the phone is under applecare, they won't fix it. I think I am left with three options.

    1. Try gluing it back on. What glue do you recommend?

    2. Break off the silent/vibrate button to get it replaced

    3. Keep going back to the Apple store and see what different "geniuses" will say.

    Please help me decide! Thanks.

    Wow, man. That really sucks. I think that you should choose option #3 first. Who knows? Maybe there's a nicer guy working at the front desk the next time you walk in there. I would try that a couple of times, but if that doesn't work, then maybe go to option #2 or just return it and buy another one, but keep the SIM card. But truely, Apple should fix it for you the first time you asked them, because it's probably just bad workmanship.

    nvm! took it in to the apple store again, got a different rep and he hooked me up with a new iphone 3gs. It's sick, but now I really want the 4... it never ends.
