Hello everyone,

yesterday I was walking through the streets and called someone for around half an hour. The temperature outside was about -1°C. The battery was fully loaded. When I wanted to end the call, I noticed that the the touchscreen didn't react anymore. The lock button on the side still worked though. I had to ask my friend to end the call for me. After the call had ended, I tried to press the lock button several times and after around a minute the touchscreen worked again??!!!

I am really surprised on this one. This has never happened to me with any mobile phone I owned. I hope it won't come back but I wanted to notice you anyway.

Cheers Mika

Yes, I've experienced a similar issue. At night I keep my phone on a cabinet which is next to an open window. Sometimes before going to sleep I want to check something on the phone, but the touch screen doesn't react. The power button works, but I can't enter the unlock code on the unresponsive screen. When this happens, the phone feels very cold. I need to warm up the phone and then the screen works again.

Strange behaviour which I've never experienced before in other phones.

Maybe something like this could help?

Normally I have it in the warm pocket of my coat, so I don't think this would change anything. By the way, it occured during usage, so I wouldn't had the handysock on it anyway. Maybe it might help bilgy_no1...
