    Default SBSetting update=Problem?
    Has anyone noticed that to get sbsettings to some down from your status bar you have to press harder and swipe farther down the screen, or is it just me? If it is just me how do I fix it? Because it seems like I am slamming my screen with my finger and swiping down crazy.

    And I just noticed this in an update.

    Anyone gonna help me?

    Go to the more menu, then go to extras and options, turn the more sensitive swipe back on...

    This is gonna rock your world, but your iphone is not a pressure sensitive device. It doesn't matter if you lay your finger on it or balance a farm animal on it.... you get the same result.

    Well I guess that explains why I thought I had received another defective iPhone with busted pressure sensitivity.

    OMG over the years I have sat here and watched people say "I think my digitizer is going out I have to press REAL HARD to get it to work. LMFAO... I'm thinking "I may have a clue as to why the digitizer is going out".


    Surface area sensor........ didn't get it's name by chance.

    Have you tried the farm animal thing? Are you speaking from personal experience? I just want to make sure before I call Bambi in here and get her all pissed off trying balance on my phone. Step by step instructions would certainly help.

    I've forgotten more than I remember about it. Things got fuzzy after the second bottle of Crown and I ran out of duct tape. It went from a pretty origami incident to a rodeo.

    At first I had his azz bent into a pretty swan, but about halfway through when I ran out of duct tape I ended up tying his back legs together with rope and ended up looking like Christmas dinner.

    Honestly if you enable the shorter swipe and still have the same issues it might be time to check your warranty status and if you are covered:

    1. "Restore your iphone to factory settings"
    2. And "erase ALL data and settings" to get a warranty replacement

    To get to the point of my reply-- your multitouch might almost be ready to go... whether it be a single row or the whole surface area altogether. Good luck and I really hope that is not the case because I just went through this with my old 2G. Fortunately my old 2G fell into a specific serial # range of devices with similar issues. (Multitouch failure)

    My top row, left to right, "burned out". I couldn't even turn the iPhone off.
