Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Can I ask if you have the following issues:
- Power button will not lock screen - When resetting the phone you see the apple logo for a few seconds then it resets again and goes into a loop - iPhone will turn boot when connected to a computer - when it boots up, the slide to power off screen appears - no amount of restoring fixes the issue
If so, then your issue is the power button is sticking. I fixed this last night by opening up the iPhone and cleaning out the Power button.

If the problem is consistent in other windows besides strictly the keyboard it is possible that the capacitive touch panel is defective or has been damaged.

This sounds like a problem with possibly 3 things. One you may not have the lcd ribbon cable fully in place. You may have purchase a faulty LCD. The main board in the phone has a short and its not getting the full connection to the screen causing only the backlight to function

Plug it into iTunes with it at the unlock screen. Somewhere it should say "Unlock your iPhone" or something like that in iTunes. Click it. Otherwise do a restore by going to the screen where it shows how much memory you have used up in iTunes and click
Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.
To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.
If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.
Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.
