Annoying screen pops up when i check my voicemail

Every time I check voicemail, my face touches one of the buttons on the touch sensitive part of the phone, causing a menu that begins with 'mute unmute...' to pop up. I have to either hold the phone away from my face or constantly be hitting the clear button to take away the menu. Is there anyway to turn that function off? Thanks for your help!

Thats very strange because as soon as i call my voicemail, the touch sensor part turns off right away. You might want to try dialing and not putting the phone to your face immediatley wait a second or two until the touch buttons lock

No the is not but you can reduce the sensitivity of your phone. Go to main menu-> then to settings and tools-> then to touch keypad or number 7-> then sensor level or number 1. There you can adjust the sensitivity. The lower the harder you must push the touch pad though.

How do i delete my masseges

Are you asking about voicemail messages or text messages? Most phones allow you to erase voicemail by pressing the number 7 during or after the message. If you have a touch screen phone and want to erase text messages, try touching and holding your finger on the message for a few seconds...a delete button may pop up. 25254526-ipxh3zptubm5u5d1ogqxpt0r-2-0.png

We're is the LCD located in my phone

One of the iPhone's greatest features is its highly intuitive touch screen.
Unlike other electronic device touch screens, your iPhone doesn't operate using the blockage of light to decipher which keys and commands you're pressing.
This makes it a viable choice for cell phone users who may not be able to complete other types of commands.
While you cannot alter the sensitivity of your iPhone, you can toggle certain features that make your phone easier to use.
How It Works

The key to understanding the sensitivity level of your iPhone's touch screen is first understanding how the touch screen actually works.
Instead of detecting light blockages or heat to interpret your finger's movements, the iPhone actually has a grid that lies underneath the surface of the touch screen.
When your finger touches the screen, electrical impulses detect the area on the grid that you're touching to interpret the letter, command or motion you're making to issue the correct response.
Screen Sensitivity
While previous models of the iPhone did offer the ability to change the screen sensitivity and the speed by which your phone responds to commands, the iPhones 4 and 4S no longer offer the option.
Instead, the touch sensitivity on newer phones is automatically calibrated for the fastest speeds, which means your phone responds quickly to your touch.
If this frustrates you and results in commands and calls you didn't mean to make, locking the screen by pressing the button on the top right-hand rim of the phone helps stop unwanted commands.
Assistive Touch
Update iPhones running on iOS 5 with an option known as "AssistiveTouch," which allows users who may not have complete control over their bodies and motions to use the iPhone.
This program allows you to change the speed at which the phone responds to your touch.
By tapping the "General" icon, then touching "Accessibility" and "AssistiveTouch," you'll enter the assistive touch menu.
When you turn on the option, an overlay appears on the screen that allows you to give commands by touch, rather than by shaking, swiping or pinching the screen.

When setting up AssistiveTouch, you'll have the opportunity to select your command tracking speed, which deals with how sensitive your iPhone is to your various gestures and custom commands.
Case Issues
Your touch screen isn't the only place where your phone is sensitive to movements.
Your iPhone has a feature called a proximity sensor.
The role of the proximity sensor is to sense the closeness of your face during a phone call. When the phone senses that your face is close to the phone, it locks your screen to prevent you from accidentally activating the touch screen with your cheek or ear.
This is handy, except when the proximity sensor is partially obscured by a case and is no longer sensitive to the position of your face.
The proximity sensor is found on the upper right-hand corner of your screen, so ensure that it remains uncovered to preserve its sensitivity.

Acer X163w monitor auto adjust keeps popping up

Check to see if you have any dust, or grim by the buttons. I cant recall if this monitor's buttons are touch sensitive or not, but a good cleaning to make sure they are not stuck should clear the issue right up for you!

How do I turn off my touch-screen

I found an option that seems to have turned off the "touch" on my touchsmart screen:

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Select "Pen and Touch"
  3. Select the "Touch" tab
  4. Uncheck the checkbox that says "Use your finger as an input device"

This seems to have disabled all touch sensitivity on my screen without having to go in and change anything in with the drivers. This way I can easily turn it back on if I want to use it again.


My lockscreen is unresponsive and i dont understand whenever i try to unlock the screen it takes like fifty tries before the phone actually dectects my finger its so annoying can you help me?

Once you get it open, go into your settings and double check the sensitivity of the touch screen. This may be turned to far down, and can't detect the touch. Otherwise, if that is good, I would take this back to where you bought it from and get it exchanged for a new one. It helps to pay for the insurance on these newer phones. I have a older HTC Eris, and have had to replace it now 3 times in less than 2yrs because of touch related issues.

HTC Touch Diamond Back light problem

Well you need to install app called "NO SLEEP". Google it as there are many versions.

Touch screen doesnt work all the time

Pop the face off to reset it, could sort it for you.
Press the power button for over 1 minute to calibrate the screen
and use the Garmin Web-updater to update the software.

Should be good then


HTC Diamond questions

Its because of the touch sensitive navigation pad (the thing that has the up down left right enter/ok controls). The 'rim' or circle of the 4-way pad is touch sensitive and is used to zoom in and out in messages browser and pictures. If it zooms in and out by it self for a few seconds after a call, then its just lag from the multiple times it touched your face, or it could be a problem with the touch sensor (if it takes much longer), in which case you would have to get the phone replaced if its still under warranty, or to the store you bought it if you still can.
