Hey XDA,

The past 3 days, my touchscreen is seeming to get stuck in certain spots (to the point where I cannot slide screen left/right or up/down)

Also, the soft keys (Back, Home & Recent Apps) become unresponsive also.

I've tried cleaning the screen multiple times (mostly with lens cleaner) I even tried Windex - but it only works when it wants to.

I went to Settings - Developer Options - Show Touches... just to see where the screen is getting held up, and sometimes it shows a white dot where it seems to get stuck, and cleaning the screen only helps 25% of the time.

I have _never_ had this problem, does anyone have this issue? (or something similar?)

I'm rooted, and if installing the new touchscreen drivers will help lemme know (and provide some links please)

Thanks in advance! - zmag

seems like a hardware issue..I'd take it to sprint and see what they can do.
