Questions and Answers

Phone screen touch malfunctioning?

When I try to send a text, and tapping on the letters it hits or misses, sometimes it works right away, and most of the times it doesn't, its driving me nuts. The whole phone is not working properly like it used to. I've only had it for seven months, it just started acting up last week.
