I had an issue with my zte skate, the touch screen was not working well initially it was touching icons randomly where i did not touch.
After some times, the phone stop responding; the touch does not work at all.

I purchased a new touch from eBay but when i installed it, the problem was still there.

I have two zte skate, both are having the same problem.
Hopefully, the second one does not have a fully dead touch, It works partially (still have random touch issue with it.

Could you please help me :(

What rom are you using?
Are they over clocked?

I was actually able to flash it to Swedish Snow RLS7 and he phone is still the same; no working touch.

I was able to flash this new Rom by using TPT. (Image folder on SD -> place in phone -> Pess menu, VOL+, Power -> green text appears showing update process)

Hm, then I just can't see the problem. What ROM was you on when you first started having this trouble?

I was on Bluemonte.

When i opened the mobile phone, I could see that the flex connecting the digitizer to the main board was slightly bent due to a small piece of plastic sticking out of the digitizer frame; this was the case with both zte skate i have.

As i mentioned before, one of the skate's touch is completely broken and one of them randomly 'touch' part of the screen.

I will try to contact the eBay seller and have a replacement.

So, finally i figured out what was wrong and why the digitizer was not working.
I tried the digitizer on a phone with original orange ROM and the digitizer worked perfectly; but when i flashed that same phone with ICS(latest update 28/06), the phone stopped responding; the touch did not work at all.

I cannot find the explanation to this 'phenomenon'.

Any help would be much appreciated.

You might just have a different touchscreen, although unlikely. When did you buy our phones?

Thank you

I'm having this problem too along with certain small parts of the screen being insensitive to touch. The thing is that I'm using the stock ROM and have never flashed the phone. It's been unlocked but that all. Is it a back to the retailer job to see if they'll fix it?
