    Anybody else power button slowly sinking? I've had the phone for 2.5 weeks and the power button feel is a lot worse then before. It's slowly falling in and flushing with the opening.

    Probably will take it back and swap for a new one.

    What hardware version do you have? I heard people say that hardware version 0002 is notorious for this happening while reports of people with hardware version 0003 are not having this issue. I would be interested in seeing what version you have to see if I have to look out for this. I have hardware version 0003.

    Yes, the problem is most noticable on the HW2 builds the button is more springy on the HW3 builds. You can try rubbing WD40 on the button from a Q-tip it helped mine out a lot.

    I think it gets dirty/sticky then starts not wanting to pop up properly. This is where the WD-40 treatment comes in handy.

    I have the issue with the power button as well. I actually took the phone apart to look at it, and noticed that the left side on the button (that is not visible) is cracked. What I'm wondering is does anybody know where I can get a new button?? Both the volume and power button are similar and are made with very thin plastic. If i push the left side of the button it doesn't do anything. I can only use the right side of the power button. If anybody has any information on this issue please POST!!

    Are you still within the 30 day window? Return it to sprint if so. The only thing I can suggest is buy someones broken evo for cheap and use it for spare parts. I'm not sure if parts like that can be bought alone. If you are having any other problems also, get a new one through insurance.

    Sprint repair centers often have parts like this.

    I will probably have to go to Sprint. The only issue is my phone is rooted and I have the free hotspot..so basically I don't want to give up my phone I would rather repair it.

    go in and try and find a tech that isn't busy and chit chat for a bit..see what issues he has seen...explain to him you aren't stooooopid and just need to buy a button and see where it goes. He may offer to do it for you, offer you a button, or tell you that you are a silly goose. during which you have never even given him your account info so no worries
