Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I was downloading some sw this evening and after restarting it to allow the new sw to take effect I am having some serious issues with the screen. I'm certain its software related and not the screen because the screen works just fine when at the unlock screen and the home screen, but as soon as I open any apps it will not respond at all... correction the very top right hand of the screen still seems to get some small input if I tap at it repeatedly (clear pulled up a window in SMS, edit worked in mail, and about popped up a window in installer) the pop ups will not respond unless its on the start screen and its warning me that there is low battery, and when I try to put it into sleep the screen only dims and the wallpaper is still visable as is the unlock slider and the header the clock sits in, but the clock is not present at this point.
so I know that the screen is responsive due to the fact that the phone responds when at the home screen without any issues
I know that whatever is cutting the screens input when the app is opened and only then because it will still acknowledge a small portion of the screen even then, albeit a part of the screen thats totally useless at the moment...
I have tried to restart the phone multiple times and get a series of lines that pops on the loading screen one long time (aprox 3 secs) then flashes between the apple logo to the lines in short bursts (1 sec each) then it loads and tries to go to sleep but only dims...
I cannot restore the phone because I bought it unlocked and can't get it to recognize in iTunes (I'm guessing the phone is attached to the last owner still) and since its unlocked and possibly even jailbroken I don't know about taking it to the apple store to get it fixed... any help is very appreciated...
