iPhone 5 will not swipe to unlock but digitizer works?
So I've fixed plenty of iPhones myself but I ran into a pretty unique problem recently. To be clear, I'm working with an AT&T iPhone 5 that won't swipe to unlock the phone. At this point you're probably thinking its a faulty digitizer which definitely could be the issue but there's more.
Unfortunately, the iPhone's lock button isn't working either so the assisted touch button is currently displayed on the screen. I only bring this point up because I am able to freely move this button to any location on the screen with no problems. In other words, I know the digitizer and LCD are working but I still cannot swipe to unlock the phone. Also, I'm unable to swipe upwards from the bottom of the screen to open the airplane/wifi menu or swipe downwards to display the calendar/appointments menu.
Has anyone else encountered this?! If so, any information would help! I hope the description of my issue was clear but let me know if I'm missing anything. Thanks!
