Question How to fix warped front door?

Does anyone know how I show go about fixing a warped door. The main door at my townhome is slight warped in the middle part where the locking mechanism is. As a result, I have to against the door when entering, and pull against the door when leaving to get the locking mechanism to go into the hole.

How can I unwarp this door? Can I just pull it off the hingers and try unwarp it by bending it the other way?

Thanks,

First make sure the door actually is warped, because it may just be the striker plate needs adjusting. Check the door with long straightedge by holding it against the face on the lockset side and see if there is daylight in the center under the straightedge with it touching near the top and bottom or does the straightedge "rock" on the other side.....if so, the door actually IS warped. Replace it.
