    My iPhone 5 just started doing this a couple of days ago. I charged it using an OEM Lightening cable. Don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.

SOURCE: 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.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

Thanks

SOURCE: touch screen not working

somebody has to open the iPhone and replace the digitizer. The cheapest way is to do it your self and you should get aways with around $70. The part is available on ebay. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPhone Screen Repair Services. To try to do it yourself, here's a iPhone Repair guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. As you can see from the guide, this is not quite that easy. Maybe a tech savvy friend can do it for you.

SOURCE: Non of the letters will

Hi,

it may just be software within the phone, after all after two years theres a lot that changes with the software.

Best bets is to restore your iphone from a backup & see if that helps it may just be lagging, but if that doesnt work it may be that you need to restore as new, this will mean loosing all your data though...

Hope this helps!! Please leave feedback

Tip

Delete an undeletable file...


Delete an "undeletable" File.

Open a Command Prompt window and leave it open.
Close all open programs.
Click Start, Run and enter TASKMGR.EXE
Go to the Processes tab and End Process on Explorer.exe.
Leave Task Manager open.
Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory the AVI (or other undeletable file) is located in.
At the command prompt type DEL <filename> where <filename> is the file you wish to delete.
Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell.
Close Task Manager.

Or you can try this:
Open Notepad.exe
Click File>Save As..> locate the folder where your undeletable file is Choose 'All files' from the type box
Click once on the file you wanna delete so it's name appears in the 'filename' box.

put a "at the start and end of the filename (the filename should have the extension of the undeletable file to is will overwrite it)

click save,

It should as you to overwrite the existing file, choose yes and you can delete it as normal.

Here's a manual way of doing it. I'll take this off once you put into your first post zain.

1. Start
2. Run
3. Type: command
4. To move into a directory type: cd c:\*** (The stars stand for your folder)
5. If you cannot access the folder because it has spaces for example Program Files or Kazaa Lite folder you have to do the following. instead of typing in the full folder name only take the first 6 letters then put a ~ and then 1 without spaces. Example: cd c:\progra~1\kazaal~1
6. Once your in the folder the non-deletable file it in type in dir - a list will come up with everything inside.
7. Now to delete the file type in del ***.bmp, txt, jpg, avi, etc... And if the file name has spaces you would use the special 1st 6 letters followed by a ~ and a 1 rule. Example: if your file name was bad file.bmp you would type once in the specific folder thorugh command, del badfil~1.bmp and your file should be gone. Make sure to type in the correct extension.

Hi I'm trying to check my mail on yahoo but it keeps telling me my pass word is wrong but I have always had this pass word for ages


I get the same problem with my iPhone.

A couple tricks is. Delete the account on the phone. Start over again and type very slowly. Most common issue is your finger looks like its touching the right letter when it registers the one next to it.

Text messaging


hit # to toggle through the different modes... however, if you get used to using the 'autosuggest', it'll make things faster, and as you use it, it'll start to learn what words you use more often. just hit the key for whatever letter you want, and then you can cycle through suggestions, probably with up and down on the dpad, or take the suggested word with right.  you don't hit multiple buttons to get the letter you want, you let it guess for you.  so, to get 'hello', you press 43556, instead of 4433555555666.
