had this phone for a while, when just today the touch screen has become all but unusable.

sometimes it doesnt respond when i press the on-screen button, or when it does there is a delay in inputting what i press.

taking out the battery , reinserting and turning it back on kinda works but then it just doesnt respond.

managed to reinstall the phone firmware but it doesnt want respond.:badpc::annoyed:

short of taking it back to telecom , is there anything else i can do??

oh, its well within the warrenty period, only had it a couple months if that

I would take it back and replace it. It looks like the unresponsive touchscreen is a known issue (http://www.mobilechoiceuk.com/Phone-review/Nokia+C5-03+review/847?action=full).

To achieve an appealing price point of course, manufacturers have to cut some corners. However, with the C5-03, Nokia has failed to achieve a key aspect of low-end phones; ease of use. This is largely down to the fiddly Symbian Series 60 OS (why didnít they go with Symbian ą3?), but itís not helped by an unresponsive touch-screen

telecom dont have the phone advertised on their site anymore, so i'd have to pick a different phone????

update: so i went into the telecom shop today, and it turns out it needs to be sent away for repair/reflash/format

10 working days or so, just a waiting game now

using a loan phone, but the funny thing is that the first loan phone was a dude :lol

I just noticed "nokia" and "unresponsive" in the same sentence and the sentence was along the lines of "nokia isnt unresponsive..."
