    Most likely a hardware problem. Is it responding to the buttons? or just not the screen?

    Try a fresh restore and set up as new to wipe out any chance of a software problem, and if it's still like that then it's a hardware problem. There are several very respected people that will do the repairs on this forum if you wish (I've heard one1 and cpjr do great work)

    What kind of iPhone do you have?

    P.S. Welcome to MMi
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    They said 1st gen so it must be a 2G. The Digitizers go bad on those really often it seems, and that's what it sounds like because only the top part doesn't work.
