Can't play SimCity cause of deathstrip...

I've got a deadstrip on the top of my screen for a while now. That means that a stroke at the top of my screen doesn't respond to touches. It's annoying, but I can use almost all features of my iPhone with it, so I didn't really cared very much. A week ago I bought SimCity, and after I installed it I couldn't play it cause the icons on the left side of the screen where exactly in the deadstrip, so I couldn't access them! Is there a fix to flip the landscape mode 180 degrees? or any other solution? help me please!

You should be able to get your phone replaced at an apple store if you demonstrate the problem.

Well if you can provide proof of purchase from a known iPhone retailer, and take it to the Apple Store in your nearest Major city, they should help you.

Even if it's jailbroken?

Jailbroken can be a problem if for some reason a software modification can damage the screen (I don't think it can but I'm not sure about this technical detail).

Just restore it than exchange it.

Yup. It is THAT simple. Jailbreaking it again with Quickpwn only takes like 10 minutes anyways....

But the original 2G iphone that I have was never sold in the Netherlands, maybe send it back to the USA?
