    can't tell you whether a restore will help but that is probably your best bet right now. got nothing to lose as your phone is not properly functioning. if you're familiar with DFU then put your phone into DFU and restore

    thanks for the reply..but is this a software malfunction or a hardware one..i have read numerous threads on this but none of them have any conclusion....i used dfu earlier to upgrade from 1.0.2.

    UPDATE:the lower half of the screen is also started showing latency to response now.Plz help if possible

    the thing is with the little to no information you've given, it's like going to the doctors office saying, i'm sneezing, do i have cancer or just the flu.

    you upgraded from 1.0.2 to 1.1.4? and the problem is still there?
