Ahhh.. for no reason whatsoever, my touchscreen has stopped working when I open an application, ie I can scroll through around and select an app with the touchscreen but once the app is open the touchscreen is completely unresponsive.. ie you can do nothing.

If the phone is then left to sit for a while or you hit the sleep wake button, the screen dims and a faint wallpaper image is displayed (it does not fully blank out as usuall) Slide to power off etc.. all still works fine as does holding an icon untill they wiggle - rearranging icons works fine - but once you start an application - touchscreen is useless....definitely a software issue!!

Hmm not sure what happened but the last apps I downloaded where VNSEA and updated the Kiwi-ise app today. I believe the touch screen issue occured after I switched the iphone off then on...

I have tried to restore with Ziphone 2.4 but once the phone booted up again... same thing. so i cannot do anything in installer, the app comes up then the touchscreen does not respond. The home button works as usual taking you back to the home screen.

This problem is very similar to a prob I had when I had the Boss SnapShot app loaded (but subsequently unloaded due to black and white lines and unresponsive touchscreen) so my investigation will start there I gues..

Any ideas on what to do??

Update 11.30pm

followed this guide
to get installer working and uninstalled last few apps loaded.  time to hit the sack, will see how things are going in the morning..

Finally back to iPhone goodness.  It appears that the Bosspreps programme was at fault, even though I have had it on the phone for a few weeks.   This is the second Boss product to cause grief so a word of caution out there.

Im happy to say that the problem I had does not appear to be a caused by the kiwi-ise apps produced by Piksel and NZ Bullet. Phew!

Ok - so I spoke too soon.  still playing up after a reboot - back to the drawing board (time to uninstall one at a time to see which app is the culprit.)
