If your serial number shows eligibility, you will get a message saying: The iPhone 5 serial number you entered is eligible for this program. Please follow the instructions below to have your sleep/wake button replaced.

Then you will have to take your iPhone 5 to Apple Store for repair or mail-in the iPhone 5 to Apple through a postage-paid service they offer and wait for about a week to get it fixed. Those who have already paid for the replace of iPhone 5 power buttons can now apply for a refund.
