I have a screen freezing after unlock or call problem for months, tried differnt things like changing ROMs, lockscreen apps but none of them worked, my screen was still unresponsive for a while after unlocking screen, then i saw senaia's post about TP Calibration and tried, the problem is gone so i wrote this tutorial to help the others.
I take no responsibility for any DAMAGES or BRICKED phone, do it at your own risk
WARNING: This will ERASE all of your data, applications, sd card, messages, contacts etc. so make backups of them.

Here is step by step guide
1. Make a goldcard using tutorial in this thread
2. Unrar attached file to the root of Goldcard
3. Power off phone, boot to bootloader with volume down and power button pressed
4. Wait for while it will search for files
5. Then a screen will show up like
Power => Reflash
Vol-Dn => DIAG
6. Press Volume Down for Diag
7. You will see a screen asking you to put phone on a flat surface, do what it says
8. Once that is done you will see a menu about Clear S58 Data, Ignore it, pull the battery and reboot
9. Repair is done, problem should be solved now

This is my first tutorial for XDA, so any suggestions are welcome
Thanks to senaia, he showed how to do

Unhappy nevermind
It seems like i got a bit too emotional on this, and my previous post was a little rushed.
The screen freezing gradually comes back in 24 hours. The waiting times become longer and longer. After i did the above steps the lag was gone, but unfortunately it comes back. Especially after i set up to sync with my google account. I also tries to make a new accont, but without success.

I had this issue but admittedly it had just about disappeared when I upgraded to 2.3.5, but still had the odd freeze when receiving a call but not as bad, I did this tutorial and have not had 1 freeze since, may I suggest your problem is hardware (digitizer) Ivaxona?

Hi, thanks for the response, i also thought that it may be a touchscreen problem, but it got me thinking, that how could be this possible, when after a short time it start to work absolutely perfect.
I also tried to create a new google account just for testing so the possibility of a 3rd party application causing the problem is eliminated.
I have to mention though that after i place the first call the performance response time degrades significantly. That's why i think that it could be a radio problem as well.

I have to admit that i just recently purchased this digitizer on ebay, and it looked like a second hand unit so i might jut got screwed up.

As a last try before i try to change the digitizer once again, i'll try to upgrade to 2.3.5 as it was suggested.
I'm still on a stock ROM, i suppose there is no 2.3.5 official ROM so i'll have too ROOT the phone, right?

once again thanks for your help!
