    Sometimes I will tap something on my 3GS and it won't register. For example I'll touch the info bar while on a webpage and it won't always scroll to the top.
    This happens in me apps too and a lot of places. I often have to press things twice or more. Has this ever happened to you? Do touches not register sometimes with your phone or am a screwed. I've also noticed that when I touch an app icon from the left too corner it won't register a press or anything.
    Weird.

    Contact Apple. I haven't experienced problems with my 3GS's screen at all.

    I have the same problem. It's something wrong with the proximity sensors - are you located in Canada by any chance? It could be a region-based problem.
