Is there any way to fix these two buttons? They still work, but are getting very hard to press.

What's a mother to do?

I had this same problem. Luckily my iPhone still had its warranty and Apple just swapped iPhones for me.

I did see this article recently on Lifehacker which gives you a tip on how to fix your home button, http://lifehacker.com/5881404/wd 40-will-loosen-up-your-unresponsive-iphones-home-button-in-seconds
Hmmm, sounds do-able, thanks!

At Frys you can get a spray can of something called "Electronic Contact Cleaner", it's designed to be sprayed on electronics (obviously), and says it won't hurt them.

Also a good thing to try, maybe?
