    I have not purchased this phone yet. But, I wanted to start a thread for issues concerning the Android. Hopefully there won't be many! :byeBB:

    Check Settings > Sound & Display > Orientation

    That box should control home screen auto-rotate.

    Not sure if thats there in 2.0, but that is where it is on 1.6 -- please post your answer if you find it!

    That screen doesn't auto rotate unless the keyboard is slid out..

    however, the auto rotate does work other places except on home screen..

    it just says, orientation on or off..

    You have to change that in the settings. Otherwise it will not switch to landscape on the homescreen. Do what Stigy suggested above.

    Try turning Orientation on and see if your home screen rotates when rotating the device.

    Okay then the home screen auto-rotate must be a feature on my rooted phone.

    I think I remember it not doing this on stock 1.6, but not 100% sure.

    everything seems to rotate correctly except home screen with keyboard closed. Must be the way it is but is stupid if you ask me.

    So when the slider is closed. You can't rotate to landscape to use the virtual keyboard or the net?

    I think that is what he is saying...

    EVERY application BESIDES the home screen auto-rotates with the phone, but he wants the home screen to do this as well.

    I would hate if the home screen rotated, but that's just me...

    I would like to set an image as my background but it splits the image onto the two screens, very annoying. Does anyone know how to set the picture to stay in place for both screens?

    From what I understand, that's not an option. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but the Droid will always split the picture up between the 3 home screens.
