Basically, the bottom of my screen is unresponsive. So when i try to send a text i cannot use the space bar or 123 function. I have to turn the phone landscape to text without problems. It also causes problem when i try to unlock it as the sliding function will then not work. Any thoughts on what the problem could be?

    I've restarted + reset it,
    yet the problem is still there.
    Could it be a problem inside the actual screen?

    I have the same problem. iOS 4.3 was working fine, but 4.3.1 broke something. This is what happens:

    It seems like the screen is 1mm too big to fit the iPhone's screen. When the device comes up, the phone adjusts the screen size... you can see it. It almost shrinks the screen a bit. Then in some apps, the screen is pushed out of the display. The best way to describe is it that you don't see the tip of the battery until you scroll the screen. Then if you do, on the other side of the screen one of the bars (for signal strength) is out of the screen.

    It reminds me of a website that doesn't quite fit in a browser and you have to move the bar at the bottom of the browser.

    The above issue causes lots of mistyping, double characters and basic apps not responding. I don't know how to explain it more since it happened just yesterday. I've restored about 5 times already and nothing helped.

    I have had the same problem. certain buttoms, usually in the corer do not work when i text/use facebook etc. I turn it round and sometimes it works. as im writing it thinks im pressing a different button, sometimes the delete button so i loose my whole text. other times it thinks im pressing a buttom when my finger is only hovering over it and not actually touching the screen! I got my phone replaced with a new one and the same thing is happening with that one!

    could my laptop be corrupting the phone? was thinking of buying a mac anyway so will buy one of them before getting another one from Apple

    Did you ever find out how to fix this problem? My phone has started to do the same thing. I've restored the iPhone but nothing has changed.
