    anyone know of a fix for this? i'm having the issue where my touchscreen won't work unless the USB is plugged in.

    at first it would go back to normal after a restart, but since this morning it has to be plugged in. not charging, just plugged in. :/

    pushing on the usb port helps, as was mentioned in a previous post, but is there anything else known?

    thanks. i'd really like to get this sorted.

    Is it possible the issue with the screen becoming unresponsive is due to homebrew use or kernel tweaking (like with the voltage or overclocking)?

    No, I had one get this even before I put it into dev mode.

    It seems related to either the connection becoming loose (and somehow fiddling with the usb jack jiggles things into place), or the circuits/logic act differently. My concern for you is that once this happens, it seems to happen more and more frequently...

    Ok, thanks. It's the oddest thing! I hope it doesn't get worse. I'm trying to hold out until the announcement tomorrow to see if, and when, there will be a replacement device on Sprint!

    Thanks so much for this fix guys!! My pre fell while attached to the usb cord and the screen stopped working! After realizing I could not get to the sprint store for 4 days I knew precentral would have a fix!

    Bending worked for me too. I was worried I might have to get a new phone to use for a week prior to receiving the 4S, but this tricked helped. Thanks!
