    Droid 2 Global screen orientation?

    Hello all. I have a question about the screen orientation on my D2G when the keyboard is closed.

    How do I get it to stay long instead of tall? Right now I have to slide open the keyboard to see the screen the long way. I would like it to always stay the long way when the phone is held that way.

    I've tried both enabling/disabling the orientation from the main settings menu but no dice.

    Thanks!

    -Emily

    That's the problem, it will only go into landscape orientation with the keyboard out. Is there a fix/app for this?

    I know what you're saying, cause I hated that too! I don't remember the exact setting, but go to the home screen, hit the menu button, and go to settings. There is an option somewhere to lock / unlock "Screen Orientation." It's locked by default, meaning screen will be in 'long' mode only when the keyboard is out, and 'tall' when the keyboard is pushed back in.

    :/ how about you learn which way is up, and which way is down, because the accelerometer knows this perfectly well.

    Dont expect to have auto-rotate enabled and keep you orientation when you decide to hold the thing at odd angles.

    Right... because I wouldn't have thought of that... lol. No, it is flat in front of me like a tv screen. It does this in the car dock as well.

    So you've gone to Settings > Display Settings > Auto-rotate screen?

    Yep, no dice. And every page and post I see from others says the same with no solution.
