    Yeh... the home button on my iphone has bust.... cant use it at all... was working fine on saturday morning then later on in the evening it decided that it didnt want to work. And hasnt since. Been looking around on the net and it seems like a common problem. Originally i thought it was a software problem... done all the relevant resets blah blah blah... but no joy. Anyone had the same problem?? even better anyone had this problem and had it fixed??

    Im gonna head off down to the apple store at somepoint and see if i can get it sorted.

    Can you do a force turnoff with it?

    Hold down the lock button at the top, then at the same time press and hold the home button, should cut the power the device.

    If not, it's a hardware thing.

    [EDIT]
    Thats a great sig Alice...
