    Hello all, I just wanted to run something by the members.



    Does your screen auto rotate when the keyboard is closed? I have it checked in settings but the only time it rotates is when I slide open the the keyboard.



    I have tested it out with and with out the check box in settings to and it seems to behave exactly the same way.



    Anyone else able to confirm this as a bug?

    Mine would auto-rotate even with the screen closed for the first few days I had the phone. Then it quit doing it. I started using LauncherPro and it is now rotating again even with the keyboard closed.

    Thanks for the thread link...



    Just to confirm and elaborate a bit though from reading the other thread it sounds like the default home on this phone is not supposed to auto rotate.



    All of my apps behave exactly like they should when rotation occurs. Seems like LG put some hooks in the UI that link the slide out and ignore the accelerometer when at the home screen.

    Mine used to rotate without the keyboard open, then it just stopped. That's why I searched out this thread. I tried toggling the settings "orientation" on and off a few times, but no luck. Weird.

    **EDIT**



    Downloaded launcher pro and it has 7 screens you just have to change it in settings. Awesome.
