Vivaz u5i Touch Screen Problems

I have a Sony Ericsson Vivaz u5i

It was all working untill one day when I plugged it in (I've been having some battery problems) and it was slower than usual, i got into the main menu and it froze, i thought thats odd, the touch screen wasn't responding at all, but the hard keys do, so at the moment all I can do is call my last missed call, (through going into camera, menu, exit, call button, call button, call button , talk)

How can I fix this, as I'm on Pay as you Go and buying a new phone will be very annoying as I will have to borrow from somewhere :smileysad:

Thanks

Andrew

Repair your phone with either PCCompanion or Update Service

Update Service (SEUS)

just remember that it will delete your sms/mms, apps, contacts etc

Thanks, is there any way to import my contacts/sms's into my phone card? without using the touchscreen (for obvious reasons)

if you have them stored on your SIM card they should be fine, other than that you will need the touchscreen
