    I was temporarily at a lost with your thread title until I read the article.

    It should be Unresponsive iPhone and touch screens

    oops.. looks like its happening to my iPhone! They keyboard does not register the "P" key when i'm typing in landscape mode! And guess what I'm using a jailbroken iPhone far away from all the coutries blessed with the iPhone :(

    So? Am I screwed? Cuz I'm guessing, even if I get apple to replace my phone, it is going to be a 1.1.3, and it will be useless to me unless jailbroken! :confused:

    Well, this sounds precisely like what's wrong with my new ipod touch.
    Just arrived yesterday, gave it a 10 min charge then powered it up (while still charging).

    Bottom 4 buttons couldn't be clicked - if i died trying.
    Tried calculater - same thing (bottom of the screen), tried keyboard as well and same problem.

    I left it into an authorised apple seller today for diagnostics. I'm told that there is damage at the dock connector (even though no physical damage present).

    Could it be i'm suffering from a dead strip at the bottom of the screen????

    Sounds like an isolated problem, or at least something akin to dead pixels on big-ass screens.

    I can't imagine a report like this will help Apple's stock, especially if it turns out that there isn't a problem at all.

    This happened to my touch also. After restoring it and still getting no response, I took it in to a local Apple store. They couldn't get it to work either, so they just replaced it on the spot. I was pretty pleased with the customer service, given that this is the first Apple product I've ever owned.

    Iphone touch screen not responding

    I hope you can help me.
    My husband bought me an iphone as a surprise (from the States) version 1.0.2, 1C28. We live in Saudi Arabia and he took it to be unlock, which worked perfectly well until it fell on my hands.
    I'm a gadget freak and started inventing and doing anything and everything I read on the net you could do to the phone, including trying the update thing to 1.1.1 and there came the problem.
    Before I knew that if you do this upgrade to a hacked iphone it will make it unusable there I was poking the poor thing and I forgot to set it to never lock too.
    So now it doesn't respond to NOTHING literally, I've tried discharging and recharging, reset, both buttons, 1 button, the touch screen is completly blocked I can't even try to fix what I've done the only thing left is just flush it down the toilet.
    Please help me I'm going crazy it's such a cute, addictive, amazing, lovable poking device I can't live without HIM now that I got it, Help me please.
