    I tried that already. I actually have a bb 8310, but I was trying to switch to the iphone. when I put my sim card in the iphone it has AT&T in the top left corner. My phone will ring, but my slider to answer won't work. Also, my slider to turn the phone off won't work either. A huge globe is on my home screen unless it is plugged into my charger or my usb cable. MY SCREEN WILL NOT RESPOND TO TOUCH AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

    My saying that my slider worked to turn the power off was actually a mistake. I copied this post from a previous entry. Being in a hurry I misread the post initially. My second response is my description of MY issue with my iphone. I will try loading the latest firmware again. Yesterday I tried it, my phone sync'd fine, but when itunes told me that it was ok to disconnect my iphone it still wouldn't respond to touch. Sorry for my initial carelessness and thanks 4 ur help!

Try rebooting the phone completely. Hold down the Home & Power buttons for 5 seconds until the phone goes off completely. Then try turning it back on.

Let me know if that works?

    You say your slider will not respond to touch at all yet you did say you can use the slider to turn the screen off? This to me would indicate that the touch screen is still working. Have you tried doing a restore from backup (assuming you have a backup) from iTunes ort even upgrading to the latest firmware?

Iphone dropped in a pool help. Put it in rice for a week and it will turn on but will not allow me to slide it to unlock

Ok. What let you slide content and do so many things through touching the screen of your phone is the "capacitive touch screen" embeded on the phone itself has shorted out when it felt in the water (bear in mind that it functions through electricity that continously runs through it. You should contact somebod who knows how to replace it. Good luck

IPhone touch screen not working

I have the same exact problem. I dropped mine, and it landed half on concrete, half on a piece of foam board, and when I got to shut mine off, it will slide to power off, but will not slide to do anything else. Everything works perfectly fine, people calling me, texting me, nothing is broken or cracked, I can't even unlock mine, it's stuck and it's making me very upset! I want an answer as to what I can do and or can't do.
