First try a hard reset. Hold down the power and home button simultaneously for 10 seconds until the iPhone reboots.
If that doesn't work you need a new digitizer. If it's a 3G I would advise replacing the digitizer. If it's a 2G I would not advise replacing the digitizer b/c you would have to replace the LCD, Digitizer, and the Glass Panel and the cost would exceed $100.
You could also consider selling your iPhone AS IS for parts or repair on eBay, Craigslist, BuyMyTronics.com or I could make you an offer.
Hope this helps, Rate me please!

Which generation? First model? 3G? 3GS?

Are you saying that the screen doesn't work at all? Or the touchscreen works for opening apps, pics, etc but the keyboard doesn't come up? Or that when the keyboard comes up none of the keys work? Or some of the keys don't work? If you want better help please be more specific so that we can help solve your problem.

That said, here is info about touchscreen problems in general.

Exposure to water messes up the touchscreen. It is my understanding that there are moisture detectors on the phone, but I haven't seen them and maybe this is a rumor.

A certain serial number range of 1st gen iPhones have a known issue with touchscreen failure. Even though the phones are technically out of warranty, this touchscreen failure is still covered.

Two weeks ago I got a new 1st gen iPhone from my local Apple store, even though I bought it in October, 2007.

Good luck.

Iphone keypad stopped working


I believe this problem persists after you have jailbreak
Your iphone . Now since you have done it the next step
Is to install a Ripdev application from the installer module. After
You have installed it successfully then you go to your iphone settings.
Here you will see Ripdev application installed then touch it to expand it more.Then here you will see Ripdev products, again you touch it
to expand and then you will notice a title which says Licenses
there you have to touch the Kate application and after that
you have to touch "purchase Authorization code" or for trail bases just touch the application which says “Ask for Trial License” after that
go to the iphone module that is the key pad and you will see
its working fine.
In short after jailbreaking and installing Rip Dev you have to purchase
That application to get your keypad working.
With this 100% your problem will be solved.

Hi,

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:
http://limitededitioniphone.com/iphone-touchscreen-fix-increase-sensitivity/

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.
