    Anyone have problems with their power button? My power button has started to "stick". It doesn't pop out right away after I push it in and i can't always turn my screen off unless i wait for it to come out so I can press it again.



    argh!

    sounds like something sticky in there. it wouldn't take much a drop of coke or juice.

    i haven't had ANYTHING go near the phone...so juice or soda is out of the question.

    when the cover is off, i don't have any problems at all!

    Yes it happened to me after the first day. I took a penny and scraped it around the edge of the power button on the back cover to smooth it out a bit. Sometimes very small lint from your pocket can keep it from sticking too. Make sure to blow it out or use the edge of a piece of paper to slide between the button and the back to fix it. It worked for me.
