I just bought a used 2g iphone. and noticed, when I'm trying to type either a website, text, or search, the top row of the keyboard sometimes doesn't work, but, then sometimes its just the "E", "R", "U", "I". but, then when I'm doing something else such as selecting apps or dailing numbers, that area where those letters are, it works fine. I've restored my phone many times, and jailbroken it. also I downloaded "respring" from cydia. but, nothing works. Can someone help me?

Sound like it may be on it's last leg. Digitizer most likely but they can be replaced.

That's what I've been thinking. cause I've been reading alot of different post on here about that. I wish I can find a shop that can replace it for me in Maryland.

There are a couple members here that do repair. I would PM them and ask what they thought. They are both very respected and reasonable. Find a post or search for member "cpjr" or "one1". I have had work done and they are superb.

You'll have to put the phone in DFU mode and then restore. I would suggest you do this first to make sure nothing else is wrong with it.

but, if it doesn't go into dfu mode, can't I just use it for a new lcd/digitizer/screen?

Well I guess it's your call, but yeah you can replace the digitizer and hope for the best.

Finally!!! I bought the iphone with broken home button for $50 and swapped the digitizer/lcd/screen, with mine. it works perfectly!!! I'm so happy! it was really easy to do.
