Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Solution i tried on Unlocked 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 versions. Just follow the steps they have been explained really easy way. Dont think this is too hard. Just follow them it will work:
1) download WinSCP on your PC (google it) and run the application
2) download new general.plist file on laptop
3) download OpenSSH on your iphone (its not show on iphone but its there so dont worry)
4) connect the laptop and iphone through the same wireless network and both will have separate ipaddress.
5) write the ipaddress from the iphone (Settings>Wifi>network details to which you are connected to shows you the ipaddress)
6) Goto laptop on WinSCP type the ipaddress of the iphone in host name field and username:root and password: alpine and then hit Login.
7) it will open like an explorer view of your iphone files on laptop then click on root left side. Click Applications> preferences> replace the general.plist file with the one you downloaded. Done the major part.
8) unplug iphone click Settings> General>Touch and reduce the senstivity to 0. 0 gives you the highest touch sensitivity.
9) Now be happy it works....

The issue you are facing is known as a lower dead strip. You may eventually have to replace the digitizer but if you wnat to save some money then follow the steps below
Downgrade to Firmware 1.1.4 (watch some videos on youtube)
Jailbreak using idemocracy 3.0 (google it)
Connect your phone and open fie browser for iphone.
Move to /Application/Preferences.app/
Replace the touch.plist and general.plist with the files found here:
Restart your phone. Got to settings >>> general >>> Touch and decrease the sensitivity t0 -15.0
Restart your phone.
Should work fine now..
Let me know.

This may help:
This is the General.plist file that adds a touchscreen setting to your General Settings. It can alter the touchscreen sensors, with 0 being a high sensor (which is what I have set mine to now) and 16 being the lowest sensor (can't move anything). Default setting is 3.5.
Upload the file to Applications/Preferences.app and you're set!

It probably just a defective touch panel (digitizer). Bring it to the apple store to see if you get a replacement through them. If you can't, there are third party iPhone repair services, that will fixed it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI iphone repair guide, so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult, part is available on ebay.
