    I have the same problem.
    When that happens, i checked used a benchmark program to test the sensors and they work perfectly fine, but for some reason the Browser and Messaging program and likes get stuck in one mode.
    I figured this is a software glitch that is on gingerbread

    all I do is turn off the phone and turn it back on.

    please let me know if you have the same problem, we can even check to see what programs we have installed.

    This happened to me once after putting the browser in debug mode "about:debug" I kept checking and unchecking the landscape only view but the gyro would auto rotate anymore in the browser or for anything else for that matter. A simple reset fixed it.

    Yes so far it only works again when i restart the mobile. Everything that uses the rotation stops rotating it appears in text, browser, images games like labyrinth etc.
    I have done the factory setting and reinstalled everything few hours ago and so far it is working.
    I will post again latter to tell if it keeps working or if it stops again.
    It is a good idea to compare lists of programs and apps installed.

    @DumbUglyDragon
    I didn't do anything of the like, it would stop working on it's own and only reworks with mobile restart.

    Good call. If you are still getting issues, you may have a dud phone Might be time to exchange if this test doesn't come out positive. Again, my rotate works flawlessly so theres no reason yours shouldn't aside from possibly faulty hardware

    Hello, so far it has been working perfectly for the last 10 hrs or so. Once it passes a 24hrs without glitches I will report back.

    Hi, more than 24hrs passed and the rotation works perfectly. Looks like the factory reset solved the problem :D

    If I launch Google Sky Maps my NS is then stuck in Landscape mode. If I kill all tasks using Advanced Task Killer then power down/up the NS is back to normal.

    @jbowden, my rotation used to stop without launching Google Sky map, even after i uninstalled it, it would stop working.
    the only real fix so far was the factory reset. Give it a try

    I installed google Sky yesterday and my auto-rotation stopped working. This is the first time ever I had this problem. Is factory reset the only way out.

    Thanks.
