    Emily, if I understand your problem correctly, you want your screen to go into landscape mode w/o having to slide open the keyboard, right? you can do that with LauncherPro, from the market. It's a homescreen/app-drawer replacement.

    You're welcome, I'm glad it worked. By the way, I want to mention that LauncherPro Plus (the pay version) is still the best app purchase I've made (with setcpu a very close 2nd). The widgets are great, as well as the new transitions between homescreens. Totally worth the price!!

    Just got my third replacement D2G on Friday.

    My first 2 would automatically change orientation with "Auto-Rotate" enabled.

    This one doesn't. It only goes landscape with the keyboard out.

    Any ideas? Stock phone. Thanks

    Have you applied the OTA update? Settings->about Phone->system updates. Try that if your already up to date then maybe you should try doing a factory reset or sbf flash.

    Did a battery pull. Nothing.

    Just got off the phone with Motorola. This phone is SUPPOSED to auto-rotate whenever it's turned to landscape. As others have noted, it did for the first 2 days then suddenly today it stopped. My other two did the whole time I had them. (But were defective in other serious ways, hence the exchanges.)

    Did a factory data reset. Still doesn't auto rotate when on the home screen. It does rotate when in Settings menu and when in the Browser and Market. I suppose I can (have to) live with it this way, but knowing that it should auto-rotate on the home screen is frustrating. And I'll count myself lucky if this is the ONLY issue this thing has... but given I'm 2 days in with this one and it's already starting with issues...

    And I will NOT get an app to do something the phone is supposed to do naturally.
