Home Button does not work

The home button started acting up; not working some times but working other times, until it just stopped working altogether. Now I have to restart it if I want to switch to another app, which needless to say is a huge hassle. Please help me know what I have to do to fix it. When I called apple I was 6 days out of warranty; it would have been a free replacement!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

when i've seen this right, the home button switch is not even a real micro switch - more like a metal cap that makes the contact when pressed.

thos kond of switches can pretty fast get faulty - the get bent and won't work normal (then they should not make the clicking sound normal or at all)

it could also be a fluid damage - that would also show that kind of behavior

I have the same problem, does anyone know a way to fix this? Is it possible? I'm sick of turning my phone on and off.
