    I'm having a strange issue with my 4s. I've had the phone for over a year and it's done this a couple of times. When I try to unlock the phone it doesn't work. I slide my finger across the screen and nothing happens. If I unlock the camera I can get into my phone.

    Now currently the phone does have a Lifeproof case on it. However this was happening before I installed the case on the phone (2 weeks ago). When I had a simple screen protector on it the same thing would happen.

    It's a weird little thing that just annoys me and might be a bigger issue or nothing at all.

    It's an iOS 7.1.1 glitch. Strange one at that. Happens very rarely but looks like your luck isn't so great....

    I've gotten it twice since 7.1.1. A quick reboot fixes it.

    No big deal, all software has glitches. At least I can still see notifications.
