    Hello,

    All of a sudden my screen stopped responding to touch input on the home screen where you have to slide to unlock.

    If I hold the power button the phone options (silent mode, airplane, and power off) buttons work, but I cannot physically slide to unlock the phone.

    I need to get into the phone to backup some information, is there a way to bypass the unlock screen? the keyboard works and so does the screen, but for some reason I can't hit the slider at the bottom of the screen to unlock or mute the phone.

    Thanks for the help!

    great idea it worked! I just used the side of my maybook pro where the charging cable goes in, to unlock it since the charger is magnetic.

    I downloaded a program and the whole section of the screen where you slide to unlock is broken :(

    I downloaded a program to test the screen to see what part was broken.

    I don't think a program caused this to break because I haven't installed anything new in a few weeks.
