1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Welcome to the forums! I hate bad news to start! haha
    So it won't leave landscape? What happens if you get a phone call? Does the answer function also remain in landscape? Does the phone go to portrait once you answer a call? It should go to portrait if you go to dial a number, even if you're in landscape.

    Could possibly be a defect with the accelerometer if it NEVER leaves landscape.

    To fix your problem:

    -Press the settings button (2nd from the left of the four buttons at the bottom of the touchscreen)
    -Settings
    -Sound & display settings
    -scroll down and check "Orientation"

    Happy reading! Anything you ever need is on this forum :)

    Could be a problem with the accelerometer if you've already tried the screen orientation setting in the menu.

    I would see about a replacement. If the problem is replicated in front of VZW tech you should have no problem getting a replacement.

    They are making you wait so they don't have to DOA the phone. Go to a corporate store and they should be able to change it out for you right away.
