    My iPhone's image keeps automatically enlarging. The touchscreen is also bearly responsive. I haven't dropped it and I've only ever used applications from the istore. I recently purchased some music from the istore the same day. I've tried restoring and resetting nothing seems to work. It goes back to the enlarged image. PLEASE HELP:confused:

    Sounds like the accessibilty feature for the zoom has been turned on. Take 3 fingers and tap the screen 2 times using all 3 fingers at the same time. If it zooms back doen to normal, thats what it was. If you tap 3 times with 3 fingers, the screen gets huge. Tap 2 times ( with 3 fingers) and it goes back to normal.
    Now go to settings and under general go to accessibility. See if zoom is turned on,

    I hope this helped you.

    Hey thanks so much. With our VW Camper on holiday in France from UK & exactly the same problem with my iPhone. Use it with TomTom Navigator & couldn't use that-managed to find the campsite again (!) but was dreading future site-finding! (Must get a decent map!).
    Great you've made my day!
