    my iphone 3g's sleep/wake button is stuck and i cant get out of the lock screen. it just turns my phone off once i slide to unlock. the button seems to be stuck and i tried to press it out and wiggle it out but no luck. my warranty is up so is there any way of fixing this problem without the need of having to replace the phone? it just started today, i havent dropped it or anything.

    my button always gets stuck. try pushing on it in different parts of the button like the left side and right side and middle with the tip of something. i use the corner of a desk and i move the button around until it starts working.

    the button is still working when i press down on it but the left side stays more pressed down once i release. i tried wiggling it and pressing down really hard. seems to be really stuck.

    edit: after looking a a few pics of the buttonit looks normal. im going to try a restore and hope its something i downloaded.
