So I bought my iPhone 5 in the US and it recently developed the sleep/wake button issue that Apple is fixing for free. Unfortunately, I am not in the US and cannot avail the free repair since the warranty isn't international (although by the serial number alone, it qualifies for a free repair).
I was wondering, can I simply replace the sleep/wake button myself given I find the required parts online? Any other remedy for this issue?
PS: Mailing to someone in the US isn't an option for me. I'm ok voiding the warranty.
