if you cant slide to unlock then the digitiser is broken and all touch functions won't work. sorry but you'll just have to wait for the new screen.

yeah but that's not true. the same thing has happened with mine, but i can double click the centre button to play music (touching the screen to press play and pause etc.). so the touch screen works, its just that specific part of the screen that doesn't work. there must be some way!

If there is a specific part of the touch screen that does not work, it is still your touch screen that needs to be replaced. Your touch screen is build with an "internal grid" and if it is broken at a certain area, that area will not function, while others do.

oldturkey is right here...any area not working can't be fixed apart from replacing the entire digitiser.

I have the same problem with my Huawie touch screen mobile, all I did is I asked a friend to call me and once I receive the phone i reply and hang off immediatly to unlock the screen.

Although its not at all a practical way to ask someone to call u everytime u need to use the phone but atleast it works.. So good luck till the screen is repaired..

My phone was cracked reallyyyy bad (a friends fault, not mine). When it cracked, everything worked perfectly. After a year (This is today) I took my phone in the bathroom with me and put it on the toilet while I took a shower, all the while my phone having a life proof case on. Then, when I went to pick up my phone, I dropped it. It did not crack anymore, but the touchscreen will not work at all. I mean, I can only use the home button, the power button, and the speakers button. I can see when people text me too. This is a big problem...... can someone help?
