Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing with your iPhone 4. It sounds like you may have VoiceOver enabled. There are a couple of ways you can turn this off.
First, I recommend trying the following to turn off VoiceOver:
Press the home button three times quickly. This is also called "Triple-click Home".
You can also turn off VoiceOver using iTunes:
Managing accessibility features using iTunes
- Connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to any computer with iTunes installed.
- In iTunes, select your device.
- From the Summary pane, click Configure Universal Access in the Options section at the bottom.
- Select the feature you would like to use and click OK.
