    Default [Touchscreen] It will die in 6 months

    I've started a thread in the unlock section of the forum.
    Essentially, my screen has gone completely unresponsive,

    Can anyone help?!?!? Please...

    It looks like this is a common issue from what I've found on the Internet.
    The dead strip issue is just the start,

    and finally, cases where the entire screen...just like mine have called it quits.

    This is complete bull!
    I'm within the year, but with no AT&T service plan, I don't know what I could say to the apple store to get my phone fixed.

    When did this happen to you? SAME THING happened to me

    Mine is an AT&T refurb, only have had it for about a month. Relocked it.

    Odd that this problem seems to be popping up so much

    it's complete bullshit! Have you guys gone through the articles?!?!

    They're saying that this was a known issue...that a certain percentage of iphones would simply stop responding to touchscreen input. It also says that 6 months is the ballpark when this occurs.

    You can checkout my original thread that deals with the problem...no solution, but looking for one...HELP!
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=38629

    It happened to me a just a couple of days ago (April 18th?), I've tried all sorts of things (look at my thread above), right now I'm trying to kill the battery, then restore to see what'll happen.

    For now, the plan is to make the trip over the border to get it diagnosed and fixed. Apparently, it's become a non-contested issue with Apple. If your screen is unresponsive and within the year warranty...they should replace it no questions.

    Unfortunately for me, I don't have an AT&T account...so I'm trying to come up with a strategy when I hit the dudes at the genius bar. Anyone else have experience taking phones in for warranty?

    Thanks!
