I have a 2g 8gb and the lower half of my screen is not responding to touch. It just stopped responding the other day. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

I have restored soft and hard, partial and full. Nothing so far has worked. Can I replace the screen itself? Is the phone trash? HELP HELP HELP!

Have you tried a restore to factory settings? If that doesn't work, it's likely a hardware issue. Yes, you can replace the screen.

You might have to replace the digitizer/glass screen. I replaced mine back in November and the replacement part was about $35 with shipping. I did it myself and the phone works perfectly still.

Same

Mine did the same thing this weekend. I guess I am going to take it to Apple and see what they say. I know that I am out of pocket something, but I need this v1 to at least get me to July. It is unusable in its current state.

Did it get wet that could also cause the problem if that
is the case after a while it should start working normally again

Mine did not get wet, it just stopped working in the middle of the day. Nothing out of the ordinary happened to it at all.
