    I have a white unlocked (factory unlocked for T-Mobile) AT&T iPhone 4s, that I got brand new about a month ago that I have never dropped, that has been in a case, and screen protector since I received it. Here's the problem. The unlock button is no longer clicky. It still works, but it is very difficult to push. Does anyone happen to know what I can do to resolve this?

    The problem is, I live hours from the nearest apple store. If this is a common problem, I would assume someone would have a fix, ya know?

    Agree, if it's new, I'd take it back to Apple.
    There are also a ton of vids on You Tube on how to fix and or replace the home button.

    It's not the home button. It's the lock button.

    Buddy at work had no experience in taking phones apart. He watched a couple of videos and now everyday he comes to work he has a different cover on it lol.

    It's not the home button. It's the lock button.
    You can always use the white button to lock ya phone till ya git it fixed on ya phone. Know a lot of people that do it.

    There's a small Aluminium bracket that holds the lock bottom up. This can break and cause it to become unresponsive. Iv replaced a few on iPhone 4s. You'll have to take most of the innards out but relatively easy. Try ifixit for a GREAT guide

    You probably just need to replace the cable the pad buttons they use wear out very easy especially if you use a tight fitted case like a candy shell

    Yeah, I could almost guarantee that you just need to replace the power button cable/repair it. The little black nub on it probably wore down or fell off.
