Happened again last night.. no iHeart radio, no running weird apps, no tethering. GRRRR.....
I've also had problems with this. It seems to be when the phone locks while rotated, i.e. in a text messaging app or something else, it won't auto-rotate out of a horizontal position. I noticed (by accident) that if I go into the dialer, it will auto-rotate back to vertical and be fixed from there. This is using GO Launcher, not sure if that affects it at all. Ever since I found this, it's worked 100% of the time. Just did it a few minutes ago.
Hope this helps.
I love this phone, but just resently in the last few days, I started having this problem, I just did the reboot so hopefully that fixes it, but it happens even on youtube links and stuff, so it's like once it's not rotated the right away, it's stuck that way... Only complaint I have about this phone, I came from a Droid X one generation and this phone is a great phone, just one stupid quark.
And I just did the reboot thing that people talked about, and it fixed....FOR NOW... What I think it has to do with the camera view, I noticed that when I go into Camera, I seen some buggy problems, I'm wondering if that's where the issue is having problems at .
After going through and reading all the posts about the no auto rotate issue on the RAZR & RAZR MAXX I'm going to take a few guesses.Originally Posted by iqmike
1. The issue is OS related and seams to have been started by the 2nd OTA update (I don't know the version number but that seems to be about the time that everyone started to notice it).
2. The issue is caused because the orientation sensor has gone out of sync for some reason (I also confirmed that when using a leveling app the orientation is trembling at the top right corner, and if you try and calibrate the app it will tremble near the center).
3. I don't think that it is related to a non VZW or Moto because my wife and I both have RAZRs and both have the issue with only a few similar apps. My coworker also got a RAZR last week and his started acting up shortly after the OTA update as well.
I don't want to have to root my phone but if ICS doesn't fix it (hopefully 5/21) I will.
