    Anyone having Inc display orientation problem.

    My phone does not change orientation when phone is rotated 180 degrees.

    I have selected "switch orientation automatically when rotating phone" and completed "G-Sensor" calibration.

    Ideas?

    Update: Did a factory reset (as another poster did) and the orientation function now works as designed. Technical support never suggested a full factory reset. They just asked me to remove the battery for a few seconds. That did not fix the orientation problem. Replacement phone due today will now be returned.

    I've noticed mine only rotates in certain apps. The home screen doesn't rotate at all.

    Update:

    Verizon replacing the phone. I was a pre-order. According to Verizon tech support my phone was delivered "dead on arrival". The orientation function was not included in the "first batch" phones.

    I don't think the tech support statement that the "orientation function is not included in 1st batch" is true. After I talked to tech support I performed the "Orientation Calibration" 10-14 times. Twice I got the "Market Widget" display to rotate for about one or two rotations. Appears to me the function is there but is is not working as designed.

    Also, tech support said home page is not designed to rotate.

    No Inc phones in stock. Delevery of replacement phone sometime between now and 24 May.

    Update 2: Replacement phone shipped 6 May but without the free 2G mini SD card. I was told to remove and keep the SD Card from the defective Inc phone.

    Helix launcher home screen and a lot of the custom ROMs out there will allow for orientation change with the home screen.

    Start with this. Does your browser change between landscape and portrait when you rotate your phone?

    PHP:
    SuggestionTurn "Orientation" option on/off/on then perform calibration operation.  Select "Internet" then rotate phone several times.    
    Display should rotate each time you rotate the phone.  
     
    Good luck!

    Hmm - I pre-ordered mine and got it April 27th - there was no card in it and I never heard anything about a card. Did one come with the phone if you purchased it at the store? Just curious, i used by 8G card from my blackberry......

    Update - went to the Verizon Store and had a tech look at my phone. The display would not go to landscape. I played with a display phone and it worked flaulessly. So I will calling VZ to get a new phone shipped. I am doing a factory reset as we speak.

    I wonder if there is a problem with the G Sensor. My phone will not switch to landscape mode by simply rotating it. You need to give it a quick shake or two and it will pop into landscape. I'm sure that this is not normal. I've reset the sensor three times but that doesn't seem to make any difference. I have not tried a hard factory reset. It would be nice to know what percentage of shipped phones have this problem.
