    I currently have a iPhone 4 and for some reason the home button takes multiple pushes sometimes to get back to the main screen. I'm trying to find the settings for the home button but I'm coming up short. anyone know how to fix this issue?

    Many/most people aren't in the version 5 world yet. Especially since he has the 3GS.

    I don't believe your issue can be fixed. The Home button reluctance issue is a common one -- I have it on my almost-perfectly working iPhone 4, ver 4.1. Many, many others have it on theirs too, since it is a subject of debate on many forums. Assisted Touch is a remedy, but requires a version 5 of firmware. In any case, be aware that you are not alone with the Home button problem.

    Do you have iOS 5 on your device, as I posted above?

    Try putting a few drops of rubbing alcohol on button and work it in with thumb. It usually works. After a while, dirt and dust get in there and it isn't as responsive as usual. Repeat like once a month. Good luck

    Have you jailbroken? Download Activator from Cydia and set a gesture that simulates the home-button!

    I have a i4 on ios5.
    Would I have to restore it back to ios4 to jailbreak? Excuse my ignorance but I've only been using the iPhone since July. Prior to that I only used BB.

    As there are very many of us having this problem with the home button we could mail apple and ask for one assistive touch option with just this button. so that we'd need to tap just once, as if it was the normal home button.

    That would make sense. Surprised apple made it like it is. Maybe there is a shortcut somehow?
