Re: touchscreen not working:(

Ahh i think i had something similar to this.. what i did may work for you is, putting the phone in bootloader mode, hold power button + home button for like 10seconds.. This should get you to a screen where it will ask you to connect to iTunes and restore.

So plug it in, iTunes should recognise it and then you should be able to restore it.

Hope it helps

Re: touchscreen not working:(

Hi - i had the same problem. It seems that some early adopter iphone users have had sections or entire touchscreens not work. Best thing to do is call the Apple customer care or go to the Apple store. They will take it in for diagnostics and give you a loaner if you want.

My phone was back to me in a few days - and a new iphone btw.

My phone screen wont light up. I can make and receive calls and everything works. keypad lights up, I can see my wallpaper as a very dim shadow if I look but it doesn't actually navigate through...

Since you can see the wallpaper dimly, the problem is with the flex, which is wearing out softly.
That is the problem with slide, flip and swivel phones. It does not have to drop, but constant flipping, sliding or swivelling could cause its flex to wear out. Get it to a local repairer, and see if the flex can be repaired. Other wise, it would have to be replaced.
Hope that helped?

Touchscreen has stopped working.

it sounds like your ribbon in the phone that connect the main circuit board to the top screen may have come slightly out due to sliding the handset up and down many of times

i would take this to a respectable mobile phone repair shop and they will be able to fix this for you

I phone touch screen not working cant slide

I came across this post and it worked for me: I had firmware 1.1.2. But I also read a pot to that that for firmware 1.1.4 it didn't work.

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/ and you're set!
