Are any of you having problems with the Sleep/Wake Button after using the Otter Box Defender Series Case with the iPhone 5? My wife has been telling me hers isn't working properly all the time. Well a friend said he had the same problem and took it to the Apple store. The guy told him that the defender series cases from Otter Box was no good and it pushed in the Sleep/Wake button to far on the iPhone 5 and broke them. Have any of you had this problem or been told this? What cases are y'all using with good results? She has the OtterBox Defender Camo/Orange and loves it but seems to be causing problems.

The commuter case I have just makes it so I have to really press hard to make it work.

The physical home/sleep button is a perennial issue on many forums. What is SOOOO wrong with a touch home button? Other devices have it. Seems like Apple would have listened prior to the iP5.

Apple does have a virtual home button that can be activated by going to Settings>General>Accessibility>Assistive Touch. The button appears in the top left of the screen when you turn on Assistive touch, and can be moved to any location along the edge of the screen. If you tap on it, you are offered several choices, one of which will take you to the home screen. Here's a screenshot.

Well she didnt like the life proof at all. Nobody could hear her talk unless the headphone plug and charge flap was open.

Just get a Griffin Defender. I have gone through a number of cases and the only problem I have encountered is a bit of difficulty pocketing my Iphone5 because of the rubber finish.
