Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Iphone screen not responsive in certain areas

The screen doesn't respond at all on the entire left side (bottom in landscape mode).  The phone is a week old brand new 3Gs and hasn't been dropped or damaged in any way.  I've tried the reset a few times to no avail.  Also it seems to be a little slower since I got it and I've still 13 gigs free.  Also it doesn't always respond to switching between landscape and portrait mode.

You have a broken digitizer or touch panel. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and replace the touch panel. You can get the part on Ebay or at iPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open an iPhone and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.

How do I keep my iPhone 5 and my iPad 6 from switching from portrait screen up and down to landscape screen side to side ?...thanks in advance


Well first the obvious answer...don't hold the device in landscape mode :)

But that's no good. You should be able to hold the device how you want and have the screen rotation how you want as well. Holding an iPad in portrait mode while laying in bed on your side for example, right?

A single finger swipe from the bottom of the display just across the bezel into the display area will bring up the lock screen rotation toggle. It's at the top of the control center, the far right circle.

But what happens if the screen rubber bands?

What is rubber banding? See the video example.

There is a figure of a lock enclosed in a circle on my iPhone and there is no body or message on my emails. Pls help. Thank you.


If the lock with the circle is actually a circular arrow around the lock
Something like

it means that your phone is in Portrait Locked mode.


Will your phone go into Landscape orientation if you rotate the screen?

If this is the case then to unlock the orientation...

Double click the home button to bring up the multitasking bar.
Swipe left to right to scroll to the the orientation lock.
Tap it to lock or unlock.


Not sure what you mean about the messages.

Iphone 4 landscape mode disabled after upgrading to iOS 7


You're orientation lock is on. Slide your finger from the bottom up and you will see a little circle with an arrow. That should open it back up for you.

This is not a typical behavior for the iPhone 3GS. You can try putting it into recovery mode to wipe it clean and re-sync it (see: http://osxdaily.com/2011/01/08/iphone-recovery-mode/); if that doesn't work, however, and it truly is "new" as you say, you should return to whatever retail location you bought it from and ask for an exchange. Most stores will allow you to exchange the unit without requiring that you duplicate the problem in front of them.
