    Please help my droid/milestone wont go into portrait even when the keyboard is closed the problem isn't the orientation switch but the phone thinking the keyboard is out because even when i close it through the crack i can see the keyboard still lit. The only time the phone ever goes in portrait mode is when i used an app that's portrait exclusive. Also due to the fact that the phone thinks the keyboard is out i cant even use the virtual keyboard!!

    please advice anyone?

    I'm 99% percent sure you have to get a new phone because it's a physical problem with the keyboard.

    Dont go and buy a new phone just yet. Try backing up and wipeing then reflashing your rom. That might do the trick. Or --MAYBE-- a simple clear of the dalvik cache. Its done some awesome things for me in the past. Post results please

    the accelerometer works i've tested it on this compass app it just seems that the phone believes the keyboard is always out i mean is there a way that i would be able to disable the keyboard altogether if so or have the phone not detect it
