Is anybody having problems with their iPhone button? Sometimes I have to hit it 8 to 10 times to get the phone to "wake up" or to get to the main screen. Double-clicking (to see my favorites or control the iPod) is more or less hopeless. I'm sad about this--outside of this issue, the iPhone has been perfect until now. I will try to get help through the warranty, but before doing so, I thought I would see if anybody had any suggestions for an easy fix. Thanks,
Ryan

That definitely sounds like a hardware issue. Contact Apple about a replacement.

Try restarting the phone first (Hold down the sleep/wake until the "Slide to power off" bar shows up then restart it again. Many times flaky behavior can be fixed by just "rebooting" the phone.
