    So my Incredible won't switch from portrait to landscape mode or back when I rotate the phone. Occasionally when in portrait it will switch to landscape and then I can't get it back.
    Tried a soft reboot and recalibrating the sensor.... No help. Uninstalled the last program loaded - no benefit - hoping not to have to do a hard reset.... ​

    You may have this done already, do you have your "orientation" box checked? Menu/settings/sound & display/orientation. Sorry if you already have this done but figured I'd start with the obvious starting point to trouble shooting this.

    Yes make sure the setting is set! Then just below that is "G-sensor calibration" do a calibration to make sure your sensors are in proper working order! Also these android phones no matter the maker are a kin to computers! maybe you want to de-power your pocket PC remove battery say 30 seconds or so with it unplugged then replace the battery re-power your pocket PC and then do as stated above!

    I called Verizon and they instructed me to do a factory reset on the phone. This worked and all is well now.

    I was an early user and had the same problem. Verzion offered to replace the phone after talking to tech support. The fix is a "Factor Reset"

    Good luck!
