you know whats weird is that the last week i had the problem with the screen not rotating it just happend all the sudden (and i know for a fact my home screen would change orientation with the phone cause its been doing it for at least 3 months till last week.
as stated by everyone the phone will only rotate on apps and when the keyboard is flipped open
but i dont see how some of you can say that the original intent of the home screen was to always be portrait (unless mine was messed up)
the dialer, menu, and contact buttons would even move over to the right side of the screen so i say its a serious bug.
also i find the video function to be annoying as well i have taken a large video only to find out that the whole shot was side ways (they should fix this)
today my phone crashed (see restoring phone) <_< O_O >_>
it might be related has this happend to anyone after they noticed this happen
