Power button suddenly stopped responding.
It is not stuck as it clicks.
Arbitrarly, the phone would go on sleep while using as if someone pressed the power button! and right after the phone give me "Slide to shut down" as if someone pressed the power button for 3 seconds.
This happen when i'm on a call, and more when it is just there on my desk without me touching it.
As i didn't touch the phone and it does that, i guessed it is a software problem.
I preformed an OS update and the problem still there.
I'm in Dubai, and the weather is very hot and very humid, so i thought it is a hardware problem, but again, how would it do what it does suddenly without me even touching the unit!!!
We don't have Apple store here, just some retailers.
Anyone with similar experience?
Try going into iTunes and on the same page you find the update option there should be a button to restore. I suggest restoring to factory settings and setting it up as a new phone first before restoring from a back up. If the home button works any better then it was a software problem and I don't recommend restoring from the back up if it works because the back up could carry over the software glitch with it.
If the restore did not fix it then it is a hardware problem.
Also, if it is very hot and humid where you are your phone could be getting water damage without you realizing it. Check the headphone jack to see if it has turned red.
