    First of all, calm down. Your phone is not your life. Second, you might have a dead spot on your phone. It happened to my brother. He got it replaced but that was also more than 2 years ago. I'm not sure if apple will do anything for such an old phone especially if they can tell you jailbroke it; which I've heard they can. I'd try the genius bar and be honest. Lying will probably get you nowhere. They seem to help honest and up front people more than liars and people trying to cheat them. Good luck.

    I have had the same issue on my iPhone 4 a few time. Most of the time I hit the sleep button and retry it and it works. Since I put an otterbox on it a few days ago, it seems to happen more frequently.

    A side not, sometimes some of the letters on the keyboard don't respond. Does this ever happen to anyone else. Its rather annoying and seems to only happen to the "I" button. It will continually recognize my input of "i" as a "y". very annoying.

    This happened to my 2g as well, the right row of icons won't let you click them. But I washed my with my laundry, so thats what caused it. You'll probably have to upgrade see as how old yours in now.

    The same thing didn't happen to your phone, you washed it. If you're not an idiot with your phone, the 2G is still a great piece of tech and doesn't need upgraded unless you want to.
