    i'm using htc wildfire s for the past 2 months and i'm encountering a problem with the touch screen from the start of the first day....while i try to unlock the screen it is not unlocking in the 1st attempt.It takes nearly 4-5 attempts to unlock the screen. after unlocking the screen touch works perfect....i was used to it....the problem is when i'm in call and after d conversation when i click (loud speaker,end call,mute) nothing is working in the 1st attempt.....i need to press it for 4-5times to end the call or anything............

    has anyone encountered this problem.........

    So, can you guys please help me out with some suggestion whether to take it to service center........

    THANKS IN ADVANCE................

    hi... well even i have had exactly the same issue.... i guess firstly u should get a screenguard. secondly, try to keep the screen as dry as possible... screen not responding after the call happened in my case becoz of the screen getting some sweat on it :p and also i will suggest u something weird... try unlocking frm different fingers rather than the thumb.. it then unlocks in 1 go.. But regarding a solution to this problem, well i have no clue...

    My wife has the same phone and had the same problem. So I rooted the phone and got rid of all the bloatware hoping the problem would go away. Nope, still there. Did a search and found it had something to do with TP calibration. I went through the tutorial and procedure from another forum and so far haven't had the problem since. The phone now always responds on the first touch or swipe. Do a search for "Screen freezing after unlock problem solution",and you should be able to find it. Not sure if you have to be rooted though. Been a couple of months since I've done this. Good Luck.

    I have my HTC for about 6 months now, but the problems started a week ago, before everything was working perfectly. First of all, the screen unlocking ring does not react to my fingers. I am trying to slide it several times without any result and finally it does open, but it takes like 5-6 attempts. Also, I am not able to end the phone conversation - recently I have pressed the "end call" button like 10 times to finally end the conversation. Actually, ending the conversation is the biggest problem - its like endless tapping on the "end call" button and it drives me crazy. Same happens when I want to press the "call" button - could take three, four attempts to actually answer the call. It becomes SOOOO annoying that I feel like throwing the phone away. Seems that it's not the touch screen problem, as other buttons (while dialing the number, for instance, or texting) work normally. :(

    If nothing else helps, try a factory reset. Make sure you back up everything first because it will delete everything and it will be like a brand new phone you just got.

    If a reset does not work, then you might have to send it in for a repair. Looks like Touch Panel may need to be recalibrated.

    Well, I had this same problem where the message saying that the touh input has stopped unexpectedly. I fixed this by doing this, hold the button that switches off the phone. Now three options should appear. Shut down phone, airplane mode and restart. Choose restart. You won't lose anything and the message should never appear again. Hope this helped.,

    same problem with htc wildfire s after upgrading to android 2.3.5 version.In the lock screen the ring cannot be pulled to unlock the screen in the first attempt and needs at-least 4-5 attempts and its really annoying.Also i am getting errors like "application not responding" with "Force close" and "wait till it responds" options.For ending the calls, end call button is not responsive in the first attempt and some times i have to press the home button and pull down the notifications bar and press the end call button.please if any one has the solution guide me.

    I think it should be software problem..When my battery is full everthing works fine.

    Now, i tried to overcome this issue temporarily..I installed two apps..
    1.LockMenu: provides new lock screen. even though i got new lock screen i'm still stuck up with same issue..i've to drag the lock 4-5 tyms.

    2.Smart Answer call: my phone freezes when i get a call/during the cal. Using this app i can make Gestures to answer the cal nd end the cal.:)

    I have encountered 2 such somewhat similar issues with the touchscreen:

    1- whole screen not responding to touch (along with the soft keys) after a call which was because of water/sweat on the screen and which goes away after locking screen, wiping and unlocking.
    2- a small area around the bottom right corner not responding to touch every time i tried to unlock the screen (until the screen was unlocked), which was due to a bug in some pre v2.3.5 models for which the service centres have a patch available. After my phone was patched that problem has not surfaced again.

    Hope this helps.

    This problem is caused by unstable/buggy apps. I was having same problem and deleted a weight watchers app that turned out was causing the problem. Have had no issues since.

    Happy hunting, darkwyntr.
