    I finally cracked today and installed the Finland rom on my GBIE CV. Didn't want to do it but fed up of waiting, but I've noticed some serious touchscreen issues from first boot. Either the touchscreen is totally unresponsive or its going crazy with phantom touches. I've hard reset it about 4 times now.

    Would the Finland white rom cause these issues? I was experiencing the ghost touches anyway. Camera opening randomly or back button pressing but nothing too serious. But this is driving me crazy and its only been about 10 hours! Anyone else experience the same?

    Are you sure your screen isn't damaged anywhere? Or any other physical damage?

    I had a problem with my touchscreen last week. It become unresponsive and I had to soft reset every time my l920.

    The solution was the age of empire castle siege app. For some reason it corrupted my phone. Uninstall and my phone become normal again.

    Is there any new app on your phone? Did you hard reset without any backup?

    Good luck!

    No damage at all on my phone. It went from fine.( cyan gb rom) to crazy touchscreen ( Finland denim). First few hours was without a backup installed. And know its running with my latest backup. Same issues. So no new apps installed.

    No issue with my 1520 under denim with white Fin. firmware. I had a lot of issue of this kind some weeks before I upgraded from Cyan to Denim. But now the phone is incredibly smooth.

    To be honest. Its only gone crazy once today. So maybe its calibrating itself or something?

    My 1520 is always crazy when I wake it up... I have learned to wait about 10-15 seconds before attempting to enter my pass code... Or I will be waiting a minute for security breach attempts.

    Also... Slow apps on the phone is or maybe related to apps being installed on the sd card. Do you all ever get the sd card errors?

    I like the 1520 ands its size, but I am considering moving to the m8. My 920 does not do this more does my 635.

    Same problem with my 1520 now... once in a while screen becomes unresponsive. All physical buttons are working fine. Then it disappears somehow by itself.

    I seem ro have jumped the gun. Since my last post the touchscreen has been unresponsive about 4,times. When the GBIE comes out or even the o2 version ill flash to.that.

    I have similar touchscreen issues on both 1520s in my household. But they are not on Denim - it is something that has just started to happen with greater frequency.

    Remove your screen protector. I removed mine and the phantom taps are gone.

    No screen protector here. Just hardware going bad. One was completely unusable and I had to argue forever with Nokia support to get it accepted at the repair center since it is an INTL version imported to the US. The "fixed" phone came back and it still had phantom swipe/tap issues that are increasing.

    I had phantom taps on my 1520 but since I got denim yesterday I had none so it should fix it. Also it helps to clean your phone once a day with a baby wipe and then dry with a kitchen paper towel. Makes all the difference.

    No tap issues here either. I don't usde any screen protector and don't really bother with keeping my screen clean (gets wiped on my sleeve every now and then and that's as far as my cleaning regime goes).

    What's worse is that if you have your phone connected to a strict exchange server is that you're phone and SD card completely wipes itself!!!!

    My 1520 has always been fine. I've never had Phantom touches or any touch screen issues before Denim.

    yeah... and mine is. I have control over at my company and at times want to disable the features due to the changes it makes to my phone/computer when I set it on my persona devices... but that would be foolish... If only the phone didn't do this... I like the 1520, but I did enjoy the 920 more.

    I sure miss the dedicated camera button on the 635 and on future phones... The 1520 is my day-to-day phone. The 920 is my camera.. the 635 is my nice throw away or outdoor phone... Although I do use I some days. Anywho... Somedays I just want to trade my 1520 for another... but it is the flagship... So...

    Sounds like issues I had, even on Cyan. Phone would just go crazy at times. I had read about screen sensitivity being weird if you hadn't setup Kids Corner. You don't have to use it, just do the initial setup. No idea how it effects screen sensitivity... Regardless, I tried it. I do not think I've had an issue since and its been a few weeks now. I was getting them multiple times a day, before I thought I damaged my screen.

    I cracked my screen last year and finally got it "fixed" a couple of weeks ago... When I got it back, it worked for a day or 2 and started having issues where it wouldn't register touches, after a hard reset, it cleared up for a while and stated doing it again... Since then, it has been returned to the repair shop 2 more times, always resulting in the same issue of it not registering touches on the screen...
    I've even tried disabling glance and vibrate when posting the keys, turned sensitivity to normal, and even set up kids corner to no avail... I guess I'll take it back again. I'm still not 100% convinced it's a hardware or software issue. There repair shop is claiming it is an OEM screen.

    I updated to denim night before last, and ever since I have also been experiencing problems with phantom touches. Though I wonder if it is software related or hardware.

    I can lay my phone on a flat surface and use it with out any issues. When I pick it up is when I start to have issues. The top left corner of the screen starts to behave like the back arrow complete with haptic feedback. After awhile the screen will go unresponsive and only the capacitive buttons work. Can anyone else confirm the same?

    Did some.more testing. Seem if I apply so.e pressure on the left side, just under the sim tray, the problem appears. I've been trying to hold my phone different for the last hour and haven't had any issues. If this is the case I can live with it until a win10 phone upgrade.
