    My friend's iPhone screen has stopped responding to touch, but only on the very bottom.
    It will slide to unlock, but his unlock code is 1000 (original, I know) and the whole bottom set of numbers wont work. So Emergency Call, 0, and Cancel are all unresponsive.

    The question is: is there anything he can do?

    It's a 1st gen. iphone, and if I remember correctly I jailbroke it for him a year or so ago with 3.1.2. (originally it had that really old jailbreak where the icons scrolled upwards!)
    It's originally from the US so won't work here without a jailbreak, and to be honest I don't want to try DFU or whatever if I'm going to have to go through the whole jailbreak and unlock thing again. It IS 1st gen. after all.

    And the lucky git does have a brand new one. It's just he's very proud of his 1st gen. iPhone.

    And yes, I did try turning it on and off!

    try restoring and rejailbreaking. if it works sometimes then it may be a software, not hardware, related issue.
