    I had this problem for about 2 month and I checked all over the web for a solution no luck.I even tried restoring the phone but nothing worked.

    first this is how it was i'm on firmware 2.2.1 jailbroken and yes the problem still there even after I use the offical firmware

    the 456 button were not responsive

    but then I read online that on the old 1.1-1.3 (2g iphone) firmwares people had the option of changing their sensitivity on their iphones. yes it gone but using ssh I was able to add the option into my iphone again

    As you see the touch option not their in the new firmware but can be added

    the first time turned it up all the way and then re sprang the phone and this happened

    the 456 worked!!! but the 123 stopped working after that
    so naturally I suspected that this is not a hardware error but more of a software error

    to I went into settings reset my setting to factory
    I went back to the touch settings played with it and now the entire phone works
    except for one thing on the icon page the 2nd row wasn't working but I changed the touch settings to 0.7 then in ssh made some edits to the general lists and wrote a new line and now the phone works perfect

    **EDIT CPJR - Link not allowed. If you'd like to upload the actual file, that will do.**

    in case no one believes my firmware
    general list file is here

    forgot to mention that the touch option will not be there on your phone unless u add the general.list file in ssh first under applications/preferences after that u can change your touch options...I tried this one on a 2g iphone but if u have a 3g u should still have warranty and might as well do that instead.:D but i'm sure it still works for it.the extra stuff I did on the general file is harder to do because its encrypted and depends on what settings ur touch is on but other then that the touch changes should work.
