iPhone 4 lock button?

about 2-3 weeks ago my lock button on my iPhone 4 (Which i got in Dec. 2010) stopped working. It doesn't register the press at all. Since my contract ends in Dec this year I thought I could put up with keeping it on 24/7, charging nightly and letting it auto-lock, but it's driving me round the bend now.

 

So, If i take it down to the o2 shop in the local town what are they likely to tell me?

Probally to claim on your insurance. Unless you fancy buying out of your contract for the 5?

Have you changed the time it takes to auto lock?

You may have better luck dealing direct with Apple.  They have been know to replace defective phones that are out of the warranty period.

 

Maybe book a genius appointment and see what they have to say

Re: iPhone 4 lock button?

it is out of apple warranty and o2 will not repair as they will say it was not a manufacturing fault.

 

If you go to apple they will sell you an out of warranty replacement for £119 http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=United_Kingdom&product=iphone
