    Try wiping data/cache and reinstalling a ROM. I feel like it could be hardware but id give that a try. If you are worried about too low space you can drag all files to the desktop and clear the storage.

    Other than that, the digitizer could've failed. With a voided bootloader..over heard of people replacing a digitizer. I have no links for this, hopefully someone else can chip in with more thoughts.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    Well, I'd have to agree with Sam; it sounds like hardware to me, possibly a loose connection. Possibly digitizer but possibly not. I'm actually not too knowledgeable on the hardware aspects. If you're adventurous and want to check it out, ifixit has their always handy teardown in HD: http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Motor...eardown/4964/1

    What I would do first, though, might be to call your carrier and just be honest on the unlocked state of the phone. If they say they'll honor the warranty and NOT charge you, then let them swap it out. If not, then just tell them nevermind and it didn't hurt to try. IF they do claim you won't be charged, try to take the name and ID of the rep for future reference.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help. Good luck!

    Thanks, but I can't really claim it as my own. I'm just a collector.

    If it's a loose connection, it could just be a poor connection from the factory, or the phone might have taken a bad bump or drop. The below picture shows the digitizer connector and touch chip, which is integrated into the front glass/touch screen. (it's right next to the front camera, that's the hole for the camera and the ear speaker on the other side) I could see how some moderate contact could cause that to malfunction. Again, though, all just assumptions.
