    I am having problem with my unlocked and jailbroken iPhone 2G (8 GB). the problem I am having is that my touch screen freezes sometimes and other times it starts functioning again. I have to restart it several times to get it to work. I am assuming if this is a touchscreen problem then it should stop working COMPLETELY. But since it starts working again then might be a fw or software issue?. I updated to 3.1.3 from 3.1.2 to resolve this issue but still the same. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

    It could be the software on the iPhone or just the digitizer going bad.

    Do digitizers go bad???

    My original touch screen cracked,
    so I replaced the digitizer 3 months ago,
    worked fine (for 3 months), but then
    the new digitizer abruptly and completely stopped working!
    (I was playing music at a friend's house and when i went to change the song, no touch! Hasn't responded to touch since)

    Everything else seems fine (home button, lock button, volume).
    I took the screen out, checked the data cable connection, restored the ipod, but the touch screen won't respond!

    Any ideas????
    Should I throw down and buy a (third)/new digitizer?
