The touch screen on my LG Glimmer has been real off. I’ve tried calibrating it with my finger and with the pen, but no matter how many times, it has the strangest problems. It’s impossible to text and impossible to navigate menus. LG-Glimmer info

Whenever I’m typing a text on my LG Glimmer, I can press anywhere and it will sometimes just hit the end button, the send button, or the back button. Sometimes the back button keeps held down even though I don’t have a single finger on the screen and it just deletes the entire text.

Then, there’s always a problem where when I want to hit one letter and then it’s the letter under it or above it in a text.

So, it’s impossible to navigate menus since everything relies on the touch screen, and that’s the main problem. If I go to contacts, it’s impossible to select a contact. I try to select a contact, and instead the menu just jumps down about seven names. I have no idea why this happens at all.

If I try to go to a menu, the same stuff happens. If I try to navigate the menus it won’t recognize me touching it or will jump down to the bottom, like I said previously. Does anyone else have these problems?

well update on my post, i guess im kinda screwed. i called my insurance, and talked to verizon. nether can replace the phone. insurance said its not there problem its a malfunction they dont cover malfunctions in the phone. verizon said they wont replace it because its been over a year since i had the phone and i out of there year warranty or some crap so they say they cant do anything insurance cant do anything. so screw verizon once my contract is up they have def. lost a customer. im going to go to boost mobile and get there unlimted black berry plan.

welll you guys that are having touch screen problems, did you ever calibrate it?? if you didnt, DONT DO IT! i’m on my 2nd glimmer now because i calibrated the screen when i first got it cuz i didnt know what the hell callibrate meant. i’ve never calibrated the screen on my 2nd one and the screen works fine. I have another problem tho, my vibrate wore off :(. whenever i get a text or call i can just barley feel the vibrate if i hold it in my hands. BUT it seems like if i take it off of vibrate for a few days and just let it ring, it works pretty good a few days later. i guess it has to charge the vibrate?? wth. this phone is weird but as long as you DO NOT calibrate the touch screen, you should be fine for 1 or two years untill you get your next phone.

I purchased my LG PRIME 2 months ago and I’m having the same problem with the touch screen calibration being totally off! I can not send text messages, use any of the touch functionalities because each key is not set to the proper key. And forget about trying to re-calibrate… it will NOT re-calibrate to the correct points. I am VERY disappointed in this product.

hahaha fml. i have an lg prime, its an at&t phone but the exact same crap happened to mine to. it worked while i was walking out to the car then i got a text and tried to touch it to view and the touch screen wouldnt work. so far its been a day and still nothing new, all the side buttons call and end buttons work but the touch screen is entired effed. i honestly think its lg phones in general, cause ive been researching online and everytime i pull up something about an lg p[hone touch screen there are a million comments about it shorting out or malfuntioning. so pissed got this thing around june.

lately LG phones have come accross some trouble shooting problems, rather like touch screen which is the vulnerable area of the gigantic organisation, due to which its loosing its reputation, market share aswell.

Yeah. I had one glimmer for about a year and the same thing happened to me. I got a replacement for the phone about a year ago or maybe a little longer and now the touch screen is all screwed up again. NEVER buy an LG touch screen phone

Bought LGenv3 touch last July. Had to be replaced with a week. Now, 10 months later, touch screen goes bust. Fool me once…
