Iphone 4 home button does not always work.

Hey Gary Bain,

Unfortunately there is no recall on the home button, and as either ATT or Apple tell you the phone would have to be sent away to be fixed. There are ways on repairing it yourself, but you are risk of voiding your warranty or making it worse.

Usually the home button can become defective if left in extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, or if the phone was dropped, left in your pocket too long or sat on. The reason for this is the two contacts that the home button use literally sit in place on the Motherboard of the phone. If these are slipped the home key becomes loose and a solid contact isn't made.

Best options are to go to your local Apple store for a repair (they may just replace it), send it away to AT&T, or unscrewing the bottom, placing a suction cup on top and popping the screen off. Remove the glass/digitizer and the remove and replace the Home button. Screw it all back together and hopefully have a working model. Personally, I'd say let AT&T or Apple handle it.

Good Luck

How to repair your iphone screen

Advice from someone who has broken every model
With apologies to Sir Jony Ive, I have managed to break every version of Apple's iPhone, in one way or another. From getting water in the original iPhone's dock to dropping and shattering an iPhone 6 within one day of its release, I've done it all. Heck, my iPad even took a face-plant on the sidewalk once, resulting in shards of glass everywhere.

But to date08846672588d $0 to get each device repaired. Now that's pretty much because Apple's Genius Bar staffers did me a solid, each and every time I got a case of the dropsies (a string of favors that I imagine will end with this story.)

Still, if you've got a broken iPhone screen - depending on the model - there is more than one way to get it fixed.

Original iPhone

Seriously? Just upgrade it. If you're still lugging around a seven-year-old handset, you probably also have a seven-year-old cellular plan. Carriers will give you an iPhone 5C for free, and your plan will still be cheaper. And no, your original iPhone isn't worth money - unless it's sealed in the box, comes with another, opened box original iPhone, and a souvenir gift bag-all in mint condition.

iPhone 3G (and 3GS)

See above. But in case you were wondering, my iPhone 3G screen held up just fine - including when I put it in the washing machine.

iPhone 4 (and 4S)

Sadly, see above, again. But the real problem here isn't that you can't get these screens replaced, because you actually can. It's just that these older phones are officially obsolete, unable to load the newest versions of iOS. And, in addition, it's currently less expensive to buy an iPhone 5S ($99) than it is to fix a broken screen on these older models ($149 each, except for iPhone 4S, which costs $199). These repair prices were quoted by Apple, and tend to be higher than third party repair services or do-it-yourself options. But still, it's less expensive to simply upgrade to a new handset.

Still, if you like the challenge of doing it yourself, this guide by iFixitcan help you field strip your iPhone like it was a wide-mouthed bass. But before you rip into it, grab a display replacement kit, which has all the tools and hardware you need and typically costs less than $20.

Alternatively, if, like me, you broke iPhone 4's rear glass cover, you can easily swap it out, and get some pretty cool colored or brushed aluminum replacements in the process.

iPhone 5 (and 5S)

Apple's out-of-warranty cost for replacing these handsets' screens is $129, which again, begs the "why not upgrade" question. But in this instance, the answer to that might be because your iPhone 5 is still too new to toss - and I'd argue that even if you can upgrade, this phone is still plenty powerful and worth holding onto (at least as a backup).

Replacing the iPhone 5 on your own is also a little more involved than its predecessor, invoking the need for special suction tools, as iFixit demonstrates. For $59, the company provides everything you need to fix your broken iPhone 5 screen, but if you have a busted iPhone 5C or a smashed up iPhone 5S, make sure you get the proper kit - they aren't all the same. (In fact, the replacements for the colored and Touch ID sensor phones cost $89.)

As the costs of replacement parts soar, it might be worth considering having someone else fix up your iPhone. A local third-party repair shops that I contacted recently quoted just over $100 to replace my shattered iPhone 5 screen. Yup - I've broken one of those, too. Well, my wife did, a month after I broke my brand new iPhone 6.

IPhone Screen Damage Repair Official Guide

Screen Damage

Accidents happen. Sometimes a screen can get cracked or shattered. We're here to help.

Request iPhone service

You can mail us your iPhone, make an appointment with a Genius at an Apple Retail Store, or click or tap below to start a service request and see more service options.

How long will it take?

Service at an Apple Retail Store is normally completed on the day of your appointment. If you send in your iPhone for service, you'll receive a replacement or your repaired iPhone in three to five business days. A replacement iPhone will be new or equivalent to new in both performance and reliability.

How much does iPhone screen repair cost?

Repair and replacement costs depend on your iPhone model and your AppleCare coverage.
When you request screen repair online or by phone, Apple will place an authorization on your credit card to cover the iPhone out-of-warranty cost. We'll charge this amount if your iPhone has additional damage and is eligible for out-of-warranty service. If your iPhone has no damage other than the screen, we'll charge the amount below. Learn more.
iPhone 6: $109
iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5: $129
Plus a $6.95 shipping fee. Fees are in USD and exclude local tax. Pricing applies only to screen repair by Apple. Accidental damage isn't covered under the Apple One Year Limited Warranty.

Have AppleCare+?

AppleCare+ covers two incidents of accidental damage with a $79 service fee. You can also use our Express Replacement Service to get a replacement even before sending us your iPhone. You can check if you have AppleCare+ by entering your iPhone serial number.
Make sure you back up your iPhone before you send it to Apple or bring it to an Apple Retail Store.

Iphone screen won't light up

If it is just dark, you can go to Settings/Brightness and change, but if it won't light up at all, it has probably had a bit of moisture damage, and will need to be repaired. This can be done by apple, but if it isn't under warrantee, there are plenty of repairers around that can fix this easily at a reduced cost.

The bottom part of my iphone touch screen doesnt work, i cannot use this part of the phone but everything else works? Any ideas on the problem or the fix?

You need to replace the digitiser of your phone which is the hardware which makes the touch screen work. This is attached to the glass of the touch screen and can be replaced in one. You can do this yourself using tutorial videos although I would recommend using a local iPhone repair shop as Apple will charge extortionate prices for this repair.

IPhone Smartphone: touch screen wont work....

Sorry but your touch screen needs replacement. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll give you a replacement. If they don't there are third party iPhone Repair Services that can fix it for you. There are also free iPhone Repair guide that show you how to fix it yourself.

My bottom screen wont work on my iphone and wont slide to unlock how to fix

Ensure that you are using a recommended screen guard. Check for damages on the touch screen. Be sure that you are using your finger and not a pen or something. If none of these things work take it to the nearest apple store for repair.

Try to factory reset the iPhone with the latest version 3.0 on iTunes and see if that helps if not then its a hardware problem and not the software issue.
