    Default iPhone imei / touchscreen help needed

    starting this morning i noticed the bottom 1/10 of my iphone's touch screen wasn't responding. Then my iPhone suddenly froze and I had to reset it. It started up but said my at&t sim was invalid. I checjked the sim and it wasnt dirty or not seated right and was a genuine at&t iphone sim. I then took it to a at&t store (No apple store nearby) The put a new sim in but still same problem then I noticed the imei # on the back of my iphone didnt match the imei number displayed on the screen. Any Ideas on how to fix it?

    ...and the screen is displaying backwards!?!?!?
    Sry, had to say it.

    Anyway, I would say that your iPhone is fried. I mean, the touch screen is broken and the IMEI is screwed up and it's claiming invalid sim. How many more problems are you gonna need to send it in?

    Well if i unlock it, it works fine except the touchscreen. but that still doesn't let me make calls because i cant hit the call icon. :-(

    Take the phone back to the store. It is a defect. There was a lady at my local apple store who had the same problem: bottom slider not working...

    Looks like Apple is cutting corners. Well, that is what you get with "made in China"; what do you expect from cheap and slave labor...

    Dear Mark C,

    Your service request has been completed and your IPHONE shipped on 2007-09-29. Please allow two business days for delivery.

    Your product shipped via FedEx Air using tracking number xxxxxxxxxx, which should be active within 24 hours.

    On my Repair status page Apple said they replaced it..!!

    Whoot!!

    I`m having the same problem but in my iPhone there`s a "horizontal stripe" of about 1cm rigt above the middle of the screen where the touch doesn`t work.

    First I thought it was software malfunction so I restored the iPhone, it continued, then I virginized my iPhone, restored ir again and it still doesn`t work.

    It has never been dropped or anything, it just stopped working. Really seems like a hardware problem.

    Anyone experiencing the same kind fo problem? Anyone has a solution, PLEASE?
    It is less than one week old.. damn!

    PS: I`m far from USA, so no applestore thing...
