    Where are you getting this information from? Without a source this is not credible information...

    Any updates pushed out by Verizon OR Google must be approved by the end user. They cannot just push stuff to your phone without your knowledge. Until I find proof that the home screen did rotate when someone received the phone I am going to stick to my argument that stock Android (1.1, 1.5, 1.6, 2.0) builds DO NOT have the functionality to allow the home screen to rotate using the STOCK launcher. Once I see proof of this occurring in the stock Launcher then I will believe it, but I have gone through 2 Android phones and been with the dev community a while and the home screen has never auto-rotated based on orientation.
    i posted a link to a site about FAQ and there is the question of WHY DOESN THE DROID ROTATE ANYMORE?

    That FAQ looks to be created by a new member on that site.

    I was just more interested where the poster got the information regarding an update pushed out to the device without user agreement.

    I just picked up droid yesterday and am having the same issue with orientation. It first worked on the home page, without pulling out the tray and now it has a mind of its own... sometimes it will and sometimes it won't!

    Guys, the point here is that people are having orientation problems with APPs, not just the home page.

    My web browser is stuck in Landscape mode. I’ve tried to force quit the browser, restart, etc. Nothing is working.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    To Stigy

    I was looking up reasons for my droid doing this too, and I saw that everyone else's is too, but, I found a pic of someone's that is!! He actually took a picture, and here is the link to the page, https://supportforums.motorola.com/t...0420A7F2.node0 . Now, you have your proof, that it actually once happened. Hope this helps you to believe others.

    I just got the droid yesterday and the home screen would go landscape i makes me mad that people say that it isnt capable of doing this, that is just bull. Shortly after getting the phone i got a message that said to update so i did, went to bed and now today i wont rotate at the home screen and even in the quick search function which is ridiculous because i like to use the landscape keyboard, so i think today i might take a trip back to verizon and see what they can do and maybe even get a new phone we'll see....
