So I have a iPhone 4, it had some home Button issues and I took it to Apple and couldn't reproduce it in store so I was sent my way but was told my account would be noted, well here it is 4 mos later and my warranty has expired and the problem is really bad now, do you think Apple will do anything for me being my warranty is now up

Thread moved to the iPhone 4 section.

If your device is out of warranty I highly doubt Apple will replace it.

We all seem to be having this problem. Lucky for me, I bought my iPhone with my American Express card and they double all warranties on products. Only thing is, I have to go through Amex instead of Apple.

@FlwrPwer mine is also having home button issues and my wi-fi won't connect. I also bought my iPhone 4 with my AE. Did you just call AE? Did you have to pay anything? Thanks!

Yes, I think they will still replace it for you for free since it was documented while it was still under warranty. They would probably still do it even if it wasn't documented. Apple is awesome like that.

If you don't get anything at the store, call Apple and tell them the same story and I'll be very surprised if they don't replace it.

I haven't done it yet, but when I do, I will update you and let you know what happened and how I went about doing it. :)
