    So i set my alarm last night for 8am to wake up for work. So this morning the alarm goes off and i go to turn it off and my screen is off. I try pressing the home buttom to turn it on like 20 times and nothing. I then try the sleep/wake button like 20 times and nothing. My alarm jsut kept going off with the screen off. Im like wtf. I then try to retore it by pressing the home and sleep button and that wouldnt work till like the 3rd try. Ok, after that i got the screen on. But for the nest 2 hours, everytime i would put it to sleep, the screen would go off then there would be a black line in the midle that would flash right after i put it to sleep. Has anyone had this issue? Opinion on if it sounds like a 2.0 issue or a phone issue??? My 15 days is up tomorrow and im going to return it if its a phone issue. Thanks .......

    I haven't had a problem with the touch screen as bad as that, but I have found the screen unresponsive using certain features. scrolling through contacts sometimes doesn't work.

    Take it back, or restore and see what happens.

    Yeah, mine freezes up from time to time. When I am really hammering on it, it will slow down and the screen won't take touches immediately.

    yeah mine freezes up all the time too..but never a black unresponsive screen...my phone reboots on its own sometimes, based on what app I'm using, lately it has been the remote app, when I'm scrolling through Apple TV, suddenly everything reboots on its own, the phone and the Apple TV!! it's starting to really pi*s my off!!!:mad:

    You never know until you try it... so if you feel like it, try it.

    Mine freezes up at the contact screen a lot. I have to home button and then go back into contacts for it to let me scroll.

    Annoying as hell.
