    So far, I have had 0 problems with the touch response on my screen. However, the other day it was raining and a few small rain drops landed on my screen. Anyway, I attempted to scroll through the screen and it WOULD NOT respond at all. Nothing. Nada. I wiped it off- still nothing.

    It wasn't until I did a battery pull and let the phone sit for a while did it function normally.

    Very strange.

    That is very strange. I wonder if it was just coincidence. I know I have been washing dishes before and not dried my hands fully before picking up the phone, and the screen will work just fine with my fingers being a little damp.

    I want you to go out in the rain and test this again. (Kidding!)

    Interesting... question for the people who have found that the screen is unresponsive due to moisture-- do you use some kind of screen protector? I have a screen protector on my phone, and am curious to see whether this has something to do with mine working just fine with damp fingers...

    Yesterday I was walking home and it wasn't raining but a huge drop of water landed directly on my phone. Figured I'd set the stage.

    Anywhoodles, the screen was completely unresponsive for awhile and I freaked out. I did a battery pull and after a couple minutes everything worked dandy. Having a storm is like having a child--very nerve wracking, surprises around every corner, and when it performs well you're a proud parent.

    i have a screen protector on mine and ive noticed that if theres even a hint of moisture on my thumb or if ive just come in from the cold i cant scroll or click at all. could be related to the brand of screen protector too. i use the pre-cut one in the 3 pack from the vzw store.

    Same one I use. I guess there is no rhyme or reason for it then. Sounds like I just get lucky.

    Your VZW rep told you your screen was "heat sensitive"? That is awesome.

    Doesn't the storm recognize the electricity from your finger?
    Electricity+water don't mix haha

    Yeah; coming in from the cold and having the screen fog up, or walking from an air-conditioned environment out into a humid atmosphere has also had an adverse effect on my screen's touch responsiveness. After a minute or so it works again, but until then it is quite frustrating.

    The screen is NOT heat sensitive; it's a capacitive screen.
