New to this site, can't believe a great site like this exists!
So here's my problem...
My girlfriend spilt water on her iPhone 4 (GSM) just so its clear.. about 4-5 months ago.
Ever since the water spill, the phone's home button does not work well.
What do I mean? - Well it does work, but only if you press on it quite hard, specifically the pressing has to target the center upper edge of the button. That is the only way it is functional at all. As you can imagine doing a "hard reset" is a HUGE pain in the butt, because you can never be sure if the home button is activated or not.
I was wondering if simply buying a new home button from this great looking site, along with any other necessary materials will be sufficient to fix this problem?
Well thats about it..
Looking forward to your answers,
Replacing the home button should work for you.
My problem was similar. After almost a year of use, the iPhone 4 home button became less responsive. I had the phone sent for repair and moisture was detected inside the device. As the warranty was void, I decided to replace the button myself. It works like a charm now, responsive as on day one.
I got the same problem, where was the moisture found? On the home button, or on the sensor for the home button? Is this package enough? iPhone 4 Home Button Assembly
