    I spilled a little coffee on my phone today. Phone seems to work OK except that the top half of the screen won't recognize my touch. This prevents me from dialing most contacts. I can't even turn off the phone as you must slide to power off. Any suggestions?

    No After holding down button You have to slide on the screen

    I'll probably have to get a new pone. I am amazed at how stranded I feel not having my iphone. The phone was in my shirt pocket and I spilled the coffee on my shirt. Some must of gotten inside the iphone. If I sync the iphone can I restore to factory defaults and then later re-sync all my data? Never tried this.
