    Right, I know the Droid's don't. I'm talking about the Motorola RAZR.

We uninstalled that, and voila, no home screen rotation.

    The whole thing is quite confusing, as apparently I was the first person to bring this to tech support's attention; and even though much of the pre-release advertising suggested the phone had an "accelerometer to assist the UI with auto-rotation", it appears now as though this isn't meant to be.

    Can anyone else confirm whether or not their home screen rotates when you turn the phone sideways? This is with the stock home screens - no LauncherPro, ADW, or Go Launcher apps loaded.

    Sorry for the confusion!
    Mine sure doesn't, my X didn't either, but i'm not too concerned if my home screen rotates or not.

    Okay, I guess I misunderstood the original post, my home screen does not rotate. I was having a problem where texts, youtube, pictures, and other apps did not rotate at all.

    sometimes you have to shake the phone a little to get it to rotate
