    Is it still in warranty? Have you dropped it or damaged the iPhone in anyway? Could you take it back to Apple to fix?

    Getting Apple to fix an iphone is always the best bet, but to me, from the limited info I have it sounds like the digitizer as the screen is still working.

    It's up to you but playing the guessing game might end up costing more.

    Like I said in my original post it sounds like the digitizer as the screen still works. This could very easily be wrong without looking at the phone.

    Just had a thought....

    Could you not take it too Apple and get them to prepare an estimate for whats wrong and then replace it yourself?
