The power button my iPhone 4 has bust today. No warning before it went but now it won't even press in and so all functions from the button are no longer working. I would rather repair than replace at the moment so if anyone could point me in the direction of a decent repair site or any advice in general I would be grateful.

Here is a guy who I have used, he is based in Inverness in Scotland, you can post and he would return asap.
Top guy and knows what he's doing. Good rates too.

Thanks for the replies.
I have had a look on YouTube and can only find tutorials which require opening the phone up which I am sure I will mess up if I attempt it.

You won't just unscrew at bottom slide up stick a bit of paper Inbetween the button and sensor

Done

Might be worth a try. I'll have to get one of those five point star screwdrivers for the bolts.

It's easy I did my old I phone 4

I did try and do the home button when that broke and snapped the circuit board so I wouldn't attempt that bit yourself

Claim on your insurance. Bank accounts that you pay for come standard with phone insurance 9 times out of 10. My excess is £50, no questions asked.

Bank of Scotland BTW
