Question about Apple iPhone 3G

IPhone Touchscreen Partial Hypersensitivity

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?

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.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

Thanks

How do you delete messages from iphone 5c


1. To delete an entire text message conversation thread, open Messages.

2. If you were in a conversation when you last used the app, you'll return to that. In that case, tap Messages in the top right corner to go to list of conversations.
If you weren't already in a conversation, you'll see the list of all your conversations.

3. Find the conversation you want to delete. You have two options: Swipe right to left across it, or you can also tap the Edit button at top left of the screen and then tap the circle at the left of each conversation you want to delete.

4. If you swiped across the conversation, a Delete button appears at the right.
If you used the Edit button, a Delete button appears at the bottom right corner of the screen after you select at least 1 conversation.

5. Tap either button to delete the entire conversation.
Again, the Cancel button can save you from deleting anything if you didn't mean to reveal the Delete button.

If you're using iOS 10, there's an even faster method. tap the conversation to enter it. Then tap and hold a message, and then tap More in the pop up. In the top left corner, tap Delete All.
In the pop-up menu at the bottom of the screen, tap Delete Conversation.
