AlexMurilloh Level 1 Level 1
So I've had my iPhone 4 since September. I've restored it before and ive always had the same problems. So the keyboard, it's weird. I'm texting or simply just typing and all of a sudden i attempt to space out but instead it types in any word close to it. Or if I type in "J" or any other letter it would type in any letter like "Y" that's nowhere close to where I'm tapping. I lock my phone or give it time and then I try to type again but its the same result. For example, I try to type in "Hello" instead I'll get some gibberish like "Fqjju" this issue pops up at the most random moments. I searched around and haven't found anyone with the same issue.

Home button: so usually when I'm on an app the home button takes time to register, that's normal. But today, when I try to unlock my phone, go to the first page or search page when I'm on another page, when I take a snap shot instead it doesn't register the home button so it locks, at times I have to click hard for it to register. Idk, my phones been weird since it came out of the box. And it's obviously under the one year warranty. Anything I should know? Please and thank you, much appreciated(:

iPhone 4, Windows XP Pro

    to be honest these are the solutions that may or may not work..

    first thing I would try is rebooting the phone by holding the sleep/wake button and home button for 15 seconds until you see the white apple logo

    if that doesn't work I would restore from backup and if that doesn't work I would restore as new if all else fails take it to your closest apple store they may replace the phone for a working one..

    I always restate my phone when these issues surface but once the phone is hack up and running a few seconds later the home button is still yet to register. As for the keyboard. It happens whenever it feels like it. Like right now..

    have the same issue. It has been happening since day one, but getting worse now.I have restored, restarted, reset, did a hard restart, etc. It doesn't help. I am going to go see the apple store today. hopefully they can fix it or do something. This really is annoying.

    Facing same problem with the home button...it just stops responding...have done a complete restore from factory settings that worked for a few days but again the problem of Home button not responding has surfaced...

    I noticed today that the back of the phone got Hotter than usual and at the same time the home button stopped responding...could that be the reason????

    would like others to share their experience and solutions...

    I have similiar problem too. This problem can be lesser if you don't installed emoji icons. But what if you want to solve the problem you have to update your iphone os. But i not sure it works or not.

    i have the same problem. could temporarily fix it by restoring the phone to factory settings and NOT installing the emoji-icons! my opinion is that there's a problem with apps that change preferences directly in ios, like the emoticons-app (emoji) which adds a new language keyboard to the preferences.

    hope the problem is solved for longer than a couple of hours. keep watching..
