    Just purchased the last 32GB iPhone 5 from my AT&T store right before they were closing. Got it home and it's possessed! It moves screens, is unresponsive, and types on its own. The phone is basically useless.

    Restored the phone TWICE and no dice. Will Apple have any extras to replace this with this weekend? Anyone else have similar issues?

    Weird. Would you mind posting a video showing the issues?

    Um, like others have said...your photos don't depict your description. In other words, who the **** knows what's happening there. Don't sound normal.

    Others have reported this before. It's a defective touch sensor.

    My iPhone 5 came home today and screen immediately started flickering. It is so bad that I get dizzy looking at it. So disappointed! First lemon apple product I've ever gotten. Called Apple and they made appointment at apple store for me, but not until Monday since they are so busy. Reboot done, restart done, screen brightness adjusted = no help!

    Bring it to the Apple Store tomorrow, all the employees will gather around and cream their pants over something like this. And maybe they'll hook you up with an upgraded storage amount etc.

    If you purchased the iPhone at AT&T today, you will need to take it back to AT&T for the 1st 30 days for an exchange. After that it goes to Apple.
