I can't touch the spacebar or the reply button on text messaging?

My iphone 3G reply button when text messaging does not work when the phone is flipped up in the normal position (vertically). I can't press the reply button or the spacebar or the symbol and return button. It seems that that space on the bottom of the phone isn't working.. but only when typing in the vertical position. All typing functions work when the phone is flipped horizontally. But, I can't type when its in the upright position. It is very annoying because it just randomly stopped working and I can't make any changes to the setting because the phone doesn't let you flip to a horizontal screen when typing in the settings window. Someone PLEASE help me fix this! All other touch functions work!

P.S The power button/hold button is broken on my phone so I do not have the ability to turn the phone off... any other suggestions?!

Sounds like a bad app affecting your accelerometer- the horizontal/vertical alignment. Usually caused by overload of gaming app that needs tilt to steer. Remove your latest downloads one by one until the problem is gone if it's a jailbroken phone ( so you don't lose the jb) similar idea for normal phone or do restore in iTunes/update apps (maybe the dev team know ofvthe problem and hAve written the fix)

let us know how you get on
