Have you dropped it or has it gotten wet or damp? Sounds like a moisture problem.

What did you do just before this happened?

my daughter had the same issue - the trackpad slowly getting harder to use, intermittently locking up. Eventually it stopped altogether - reboot did no good, and as it was under warranty I sent it back to O2 for repair. I suspect that as she was a very heavy BBM user, her perspiration had managed to ingress behind the pad and corroded the connection.
They sent back a new phone. I think there was either a hardware failure in the trackpad or else in the interface to the phone so that only a rebuild would clear it.

HTH.
