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..

[doublepost=1495052181][/doublepost]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.
