    Got my 4g touch yesterday and hours later the sleep and volume buttons stopped working, the home button still works great as long as everything else. Tried a restore but that did nothing. Anyone else having this issue?!

    yes, my itouch 4g also has this prob.. theres a thread in the apple support, but no1s getting any answer.. i dnt think its a hardware prob, it comes and goes, so idk.. i had it good for like 2 days, and after i synced with itunes, all three buttons became unresponsive..

    my warranty is for 1yr so im thinkin of returning it midway.. hehe.. to get a brand new itouch..

    iOS 4.2 fixing the unresponsive Sleep / Volume controls?

    I've had the 4G since it was released and have tried restoring MANY times to fix this issue. It seems to be malfunctioning more and more often lately. I'm hoping the new iOS 4.2 might fix this- anyone think this is the case? If not- I wish I had just replaced it instead of waiting all this time for the update.

    Thanks

    A restore will not fix it. Trust me I tried.
    Go to the apple store and get it replaced. You just got a faulty one. I got mine replaced and so far it is working great!
