The bottom left corner of my iPhone screen is extremely hypersensitive. When typing a text, I can't select an individual letter; if my finger even hovers over (not even close to touching the screen) the left side of the keyboard i get multiple letter selections (something like ''awwwaaasar'' instead of ''e''). This is making any typing next to impossible. I have already tried a reset (holding down power and menu keys) to no avail. Any other solutions?

Re: iPhone Touchscreen Partial Hypersensitivity
Have you fitted a screen protector, as this could be causing inadvertant screen touches. If not try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo, then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.
If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.

To type capital letters, press the shift key which is the up arrow in the bottom left corner of the screen, and then press the key for your desired letter. If you would like caps lock, double-tap the shift key. Note that the caps lock will be deactivated if you change to the number keyboard or symbol keyboard.

Now select up to max of 5 pics you want to send by tapping on the pics
Once selected tap on Share button on bottom left corner you would see two options Email and MMS. Select Email(or MMS).
type the email address of person you want the send the pics to .. and hit Send button on top right corner and Voila you are done.(it might take from few seconds to couple of minutes to send the pics depending on the size you chose)
I might be able to advice on how I find it best to use the touchscreen.
To answer the phone run your finger (or the stick that came with the phone) from left to right across the screen.
The same method applies to other operations on on the touch your finger from left to righth screen.
I discovered that it is of no use to press the icon, rather move your finger from left to right over the text that explains the operation, as when it is reminding you of something you have put in to be reminded of.
I use mine to remind me of doctors appoinments and to remind me of when I am to take my medecine.
Even though the iPhone
is a device that is extremely convenient to have, it still can cause
frustrations. Specifically, there may be times when the touch screen
does not work properly.
There are various problems the iPhone
touch screen could encounter. Although there are times when the screen
does not work altogether, there are other situations when certain
portions of the screen work and others don't. Of course, it is possible
that the entire screen works, but is simply slow. Regardless of the
exact problem, there are ways to troubleshoot the iPhone to diagnose
the real problem.
the wiping cloth that came in the small black envelope along with the
iPhone. Wipe the smudges or dust off the screen with this cloth. It is
best to wipe in a circular motion.
not put lotion on your hands and do not touch the screen if your hands
are wet. Any kind of moisture can affect the way the touchscreen
operates. Moisture sometimes slows the response time from the screen to
the operating system.
for a protective sheet on the screen. If there is some kind of a film
or sheet on the touchscreen, the screen is likely not able to react to
all of the sensitivities of the touch of a finger as it normally would.
there is an application open and the touchscreen seems to not be
working, simply close the application and retry it. A frozen
application can usually be closed by pressing and holding on the
circular button located just below the touchscreen.
and hold the home button as well as the reset button on the top of the
phone to turn the iPhone off. A red slider will appear. Slide it to the
right to turn the phone off. Press again on the "Reset" button on the
top to turn the phone back on.
reset the iPhone by holding the "Home" button and the "Reset" button
for a full 10 seconds until the phone resets and the Apple logo appears
on the phone.
If you are using the iPhone in cold
weather and wearing gloves, the iPhone will not react to the gloves as
it will to the touch of a finger.
the touchscreen is dirty, do not run the iPhone under water. Doing this
will likely ruin the phone, but even if it doesn't, it will possibly
make the phone run slower.
I think my solution for my Viewty will work for the iPhone
I found a solution for the LG KU990 Viewty touchscreen not responding problem. After thinking about twisting my phone, I came up with another solution which actually works every time. The touchscreen works via layers of plastic that when contact is made, a signal is triggered from the coordinates of the contact. However, when the phone has pressure, these layers of plastic stick together somehow. So, to fix it.... Get a small strip of adhesive tape that will not leave a sticky residue on your screen. Apply that tape in several spots on the surface of the screen, and lift it away from the phone with light pressure. Repeat this in several areas of the screen. That's it. You're done. Your screen should function properly. Simply recalibrate the touchscreen at this point in your settings menu. I hope it helps everyone with any type of touchscreen. I know it helped me. The touchscreen phones are totally useless using only the hard keys!
