    Default [TouchScreen] Lower Part no longer working

    Hi,

    I've read about some issues on the net, my touchscreen is no longer working on the lower end, so that I am not able to press the phone,mail,ipod,.... buttons.

    The device did not fall or anything else, from 1 minute to the other it stoped working.

    Unfortunatley, I am not in the US, the european support center cannot help, and the US neither, they are asking for a AT&T phonenumber, which I do not have (i am based in europe).

    Very anoying, nobody an idea, or a similar problem ? maybe reverse the screen so that at the these buttons are on the top, as well as the keyboard, this way the device is fary useless.

    If anybody has an idea, help would be appreciated.

    Thanks !!

    Tom

    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...

    I have a friend that had a small strip around the spacebar stop responding. She uploaded a modified file to make the sensitivity increase on the Phone, and it worked for her!

    Search for "dead spot" or "keyboard" and you can find the link. Good luck!

    I had the same issue on a 2 week old unlocked phone. I restored it and took it back to the Apple store and they swapped it for a new one. I could not find a solution to fix it myself.

    A friend of mine also had the problem. Bottom of display is not responsive any more. I'm afraid it's not software related. We tried everything. The problem has also been reported on Apple forums by several users (with unhacked iPhones). Could be a bad display serie. It seems that the only solution is to bring it back. Not really a good news for non-US users.

    NO! That is not the only solution. I have posted the fix I did on over 7 different threads.

    Do a search guys, it is an easy software mod that increases the sensitivity of the screen by uploading a file through iBrickr. For me the problem was a strip near the bottom of the phone not responding to any of my touch inputs.

    you almost helped me...

    I`ve had that menu since I unlocked mine and since this problem showed up I switched it to 0. It helped a little but it is still very clear that there`s a stripe of non-functioning touchscreen, specially ahen scrolling through lists (finger goes up and list follows, when finger "hits the spot" list stops, then finger "leaves" the dead stripe and list continues following).

    I think I really got unlucky on this one...
