Is there anything we can do from home for this Problem?? I have the tools to take it apart, but not sure what to do after that?? I cant take it to a Verizon store I'm out of country. Any help or idea would be great thanks.
My phone started to do this too! and somehow i accidentally discovered that if i pressed the actual screen (not touched, pushed, not too too hard, but not just touching!) somewhere around the middle, maybe slightly down a little bit, it served as the send button. I dunno if this is a ransom thing my phone does, but it might do the same with yours! Just trying to help you out.

The home button do tend to break, the iphone 3 or 3gs are straight forward to replace the home button. Remove 2 screws from the end of your phone, 1 on either side of your charging socket. Lift the screen from the home button end as there are ribbon cables on the earpiece end of the screen. You then have access to replacing the home button but the iphone 4 and newer model are alot more difficult as the last thing to be removed is the screen and you have to remove the screen for access to the home button. It is a very cheap fix but if you don't know what your doing when taking apart your phone you could cause alot more damage. Have a look at a internet iphone repair video to see if you would be confident of doing the repair yourself. Before you start to take apart your phone make sure it is not under warranty as taking it apart will void any warranty.
Youre iPhones problem is for some reason, its default settings are (too heavy) so put it into DFU mode and restore it. DFU mode = Hold the home button and the top button for 10 seconds then release the top button and wait...make sure its plugged into the computer or it wont work. wait until the computer and iTunes detects that its in DFU mode. Then restore it.
you should be able to get a used one cheap, if you want to keep that one. use a T8 screw driver to open it, if the little button inside has broken free from the solder, i would advise a new phone, or send it in here to replace the board, it should not cost more then 20.00 us
Connect to a computer and do this to enter DFU mode and try to restore, be aware that everything on the phone may be lost:
-Turn phone off if possible
-Hold power and home together for 10 secs
-Release power but keep holding home until computer detects iPhone
Repeat a few times it can be hard to do the first time.
There may still be some water or moisture under the keypad. The water may leave some conductive residue. The phone should be taken apart and properly cleaned and dried. It is also possible there there may be water damage and parts will have to be changed.
I have taken one of those apart and i know the main connectors that send the info to the screen are in that hinge that came a apart. The screen is either bad ( common with those ) the screen plug got detached from the circuit board inside which send the info and powers the screen. Jut my opinion, hope it helps.
