    That is what my phone allows me to do while it's charging.. Not sure why it becomes so unresponsive, but it does.. Anyone else have an issue like this?

    So waiting on the lag doesn't let you type correctly or it just types gibberish?

    It just allows me to type gibberish.. In fact, much of that was "ghost typed" in the sense that I didn't even have my thumbs on the keypad.. I am not sure why, but that's what it does.. It's veeeery touch, or no touch, sensitive..

    We need to work together on writing this title and your first post. We need to understand your issue first.

    That's what my iPhone 5 translated to text.. Trying to show my problem.. Sorry, wasn't meant to offend.. I realize it makes it difficult to understand, but someone else our there will know exactly what I'm dealing with.

    No worries. A descriptive title in this situation works best.

    Have you a reset? Is it only happening in a specific app?

    Wow, that's a much better title than what my iPhone allowed me to type..
    No, this charging issue is not selective to any particular app, but it does this even when trying to unlock the phone.. I've tried turning off my alarm around 4:45 am and it'll make a phone call.. That makes for some explaining in the early morning..

    Have you restored to factory settings? Has there been any damage to the phone?

    Do you have a screen protector on?

    This issue started cropping up in iOS 7?

    iOS 7 has perpetuated the problem more-so than I can remember with iOS 6.. I know I had a similar problem with my iPhone 4 when it went to the new ios.. So maybe this is an issue with the iOS.. Dunno..

    Is it doing that with all apps or only a certain one?
    I can type in any app I've got, when it's plugged in, with no problems or lag.

    Gonna say it's not an app problem, but a phone issue.. It won't let my slide to unlock sometimes

    I'd make a Genius Bar appointment at Apple. Is it still under warranty?
