Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I do not recommend taking the iPhone apart yourself I've personally seen where my clients have done exactly that and broken the charge port or cracked the glass or ripped one of the ribbon connectors. If the home button is not responding you should have a technician look at it.
With that said...
If you absolutely cannot hire a technician...
There are two screws on the bottom of the phone once these are removed the screen assembly can be lifted slowly up from the bottom first - Please do not use a screwdriver to pry it up a suction cup will do the trick (the kind that holds a GPS to the windshield of your car should work). Once you have lifted the screen assembly look underneath toward the top right there are 3 ribbon connectors you can use your fingernail to pry up the connectors freeing the ribbon !-be gentle as these are fragile-! Your home bottom and it connector are located at the bottom of that screen assembly. You will see 2 gold connectors extending from the bottom of the screen. Be gentle with those they break EASY check where they make contact with the board are the contacts clean?
Is the button depressing(does it feel like a click?)?
--It may be that the small round metal piece that helps the button to depress has moved out of place and the button is no longer making contact.
Beyond this you will need a new button assembly which is quite tricky to replace since it is fused inside with the glass.
???!-Maybe time for a pro!???

Thank you and Good Luck!

Take it in for service if your under warranty. Keep in mind that Apple won't do sh.t for you if you dropped it and cracked the screen or spilled water on it.
