Would a faulty-ish home button be covered under warranty?

    The iPod Touch 3rd gen i have seems to fail at "press and hold" home button and it usually registers as a single click. Do you think apple will replace it for sure (i have a stuck wave case on it), cuz i dont wanna get it scratched up and not get a replacement for it (i dont like scratches). or should i unjailbreak and test again?

    either way need to do a DFU restore. if it doesnt work after that then yea they should replace it with a new one.

    take it with the case on and ask if they will replace it and if they say yes then remove the case there. but i got my touch replaced for a brokenish power button. so im thinking they will.

    What I would do it try to hold the home button down and see if Voice Control comes up. Can you double tap it and have iPod controls/music come up?

    Is your warranty still in service?
