    Hello, today i bought a second hand iphone 5s , and when i got home i realized it does something like ghost touching, like from time to time it swipes left rightn up down, it's random, and it is fixed by a lock and unlock. Any help? I read about something with the digitizer band touching metal but i didn't try anything, the guy said he changed the screen but from there nothing has been said..

    It could just be a bad screen or damage done in the installation of the screen.

    Explain to the ghost that this is your phone and that it's dead and needs to move on. Help guide it towards the light. If you're unable to do this, I recommend contacting some experts: http://the-atlantic-paranormal-society.com

    I've had the same problem across multiple iPhones. It seems to happen mostly when my phone is plugged into my generic charger cable at work. And can get lots worse if I have my headphones plugged in at the same time. I did recently change out my little 5w charging cube for a 12w charging cube and I haven't noticed it being the problem that it was.
