It's a broken digitizer. Take it to the apple store. If they won't help you, You can try to replace the part yourself, it is available on any auction website (iPhone 4G digitizer/LCD assembly). There is an iPhone 4G Repair service that can fix it for you, but if you're a little tech savy you should use an iPhone 4G repair guide that teaches you how to do the repair yourself.

Hi, well this is a common thing to happen, and many people repair it themselves, it is not too hard of a job, the screen really has two pieces to it, the touch screen, and the actual screen, both have leads and both need to be connected, the parts are not all that expensive either. There are tutorials how to do it also Ebay is a good place, but not the only place to obtain a replacement "Kit" sometimes they even come with tools to help do the job. Often you need to buy ALL the Glass Protection Screen, the Actual picture Screen & the Touchscreen layer as well.
Below is the master Google link, for a tutorial how to replace the screen.

My iphone cracked about a few months ago and a few days ago i spilt water into the crack. It started with my ringtone not working and then my phone completely shut off. I tried restoring it on itunes but...


No, it's not the end but you will most likely need to take it in to a Authorized Repair Center so they can repair the broken, cracked screen and any internal damage since obviously water or moisture getting inside is an issue.

I dropped my iphone and now the unlock slide doesnt work


It looks like you need a new LCD/digitizer which you canreplace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.

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.
