Question about Samsung Instinct SPH-M800 Cell Phone Car Charger
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENING TO MY PHONE. IT SEEMS LIKE THE TOUCHSCREEN WORKS WHEN IT WANTS TO. I DON'T HAVE A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM, HOWEVER I'VE FOUND THAT TAKING YOUR FINGERNAIL AND RUNNING IT ALONGSIDE THE EDGE OF THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL USUALLY GET IT TO WORK AGAIN, AS IF THE TOUCHSCREEN GETS PUSHED DOWN TO HARD ON THE SENSORS AND GETS STUCK SOMETIMES. **NOTE**--SOMETIMES YOU MAY HAVE TO RUN YOUR FINGERNAIL AROUND IT A FEW TIMES BEFORE IT FINALLY FREES IT. BUT SO FAR, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET IT BACK TO WORKING PROPERLY EVERYTIME I DO THAT.. HOPE THIS HELPS!!

I have the same problem with my instinct since the touch screen is plastic and very thin i guess that it has broken conections somewhere you can buy a new screen of ebay for $13.00 as for turning your phone of to stop the alarm you can just touch the volume key to spot the sound and you can use your headset to answerthe phone as well as the voice recognition on the right side of the phone and tell the phone what number to call (You really should have read your manual) My phones screen is not responding at all but I still make and recive calls just fine.

I was having trouble with the touch screen ... if I typed 9 I got 8 texting was out of the question unless you had lots of time and lots of arrowing back.
I tried calibration, then decided to update software........phone fixed......I didn't know you had to manually do the updates in the settings
