    Hey guys,

    Using my iphone 4 this morning and suddenly the sleep button became stuck, its now very very difficult to press and lock my phone, has anyone else had any issues and know a fix as I really don't fancy driving to Meadowhall to my nearest apple store and swapping it :(.

    this happened to me - think the only thing you can do is take it back - they changed it no problem for me

    Warranty is on the phone so doesnt matter who it belongs to.

    Sweet so I can just go in and they can swap it there and then?
    Would prefer a fix though?

    When I spoke to AppleCare there said the phone is registered to someone else via the imei and serial no. Will this cause any problems when I go into to swap it?

    This happened to me too. Had to go to the Apple store and they replaced it straight away.

    I had this problem with my 3GS & it was out of warranty. Went to the apple store to get it fixed & they swapped it for me. Never cost me a penny.

    Wouldnt have thought they would fix it, they'll replace it. Book a genius appointment via the apple website and then before you go do a full backup and then just restore to the new one when you get home.
