    Ever since I got my iPhone 5S, whenever I decline a call by pressing the power button twice, the touchscreen becomes unresponsive until I lock the phone and then unlock it again. I have always thought this is a bug in iOS but now that almost half a year has passed, I am beginning to think my phone is somewhat at fault. I have restored it since and even set it as new a couple of times but to no avail. Do you guys have the same problem or not?
    My iPhone is the 32GB unlocked european version. Thanks!

    IIRC it happened to me a couple of times, so it could be a software bug.
    But it is very difficult to reproduce, since I'm declining calls every day but that doesn't happen.

    It happens every single time I do. But my phone functions perfectly, absolutely nothing wrong with it. Doesn't look like a hardware malfunction to me...

    Software issue (one more)...

    Tried about 10 times and couldn't get the phone to "freeze". It does seem to hang up for a second or so while the call is being routed to voice mail, but that's it.

    It's very strange it happens every single time for you.
    That's not the normal behavior...

    I wish I had an Apple Store in my country but the best I can do is bring it to my carrier and they would never see that as an issue. Thank you for your answers anyway!

    Have you tried..

    1) Doing a restart & hard reset of phone?
    2) Force closing the phone app?
    3) Removing the SIM card and re inseting?
    4) Reset All Settings?
    5) Erase all Contents & Settings without restoring from a backup?

    I'm sorry.
    That's the reason why I wouldn't buy an iPhone in a country without a proper Apple store available.

    If you had bothered to read my post, you'd have seen that I have restored the phone as new more than once, let alone force closing the phone app...

    Thanks for the help anyway, I appreciate it.
