    Supposed to be an awesome phone....with tons of features....but with those features come an equal amount of headaches it seems.

    Currently, on top of having to use SDrescan to get pics to even show up in the new POS gallery....the edit features are screwed up. Took some pics and they showed up sideways, upside down...every which way. No biggie right, droid can handle that and rotate the pics....or so it seems. It shows them as being the rightt direction in the gallery now, but if you try to email it or upload to photobucket, it still shows up in the upside down/sideways orientation. Deleted those pics, rebooted phone....tried again and still the same thing.
    I don't get it.

    what modifications have you done to your phone? i had issues after i did a factory reset once...

    have you tried copying all your files off your sdcard, formatting sdcard in the phone, and then putting just the pictures back?

    i cant begin to tlel you ho many problems i have had with this phone. since day once its been crap. i have had 7 droids in the past 4 months. they all have the same glitchy problems, clicking one thing and it doing another, i hate how unfriendly text messaging is and how much aggravation i have with this thing. i upgraded to this phone in January too. thank god i was able to get my point across and Verizon is going to give me a free upgrade to the incredible. and give me a free month next month...

    I don't have any "mods"....just a few apps from the market.

    Tony-I forgot about that wonderful glitch where you can hit one icon and another program opens.
    Shouldn't have to reset a phone multiple times every day to get it to work right.

    7 phones in 4 months? Sounds like useritis to me.

    I'm on my second phone since November and if i took it back each time it acted stupid I would probably be in the double digits myself.

    Are you left handed by any chance?

    Left handed? You actually think he is holding the phone upside down and shooting with his thumb?

    Nope, this last batch of a dozen or so pics are the only ones its doing this to. Hundreds of pics without issue (except for having to use sdrescan)...and now this crap starts.

    So is that a phone issue, or an email/photobucket issue?

    Seems fishy how everything bad is happening to you (and your 7 droids..) but everyone else minus a few people love the phone....

    hahaha i really wish it were that. i actually own a cell phone repair business and have for years. all phones came with problems immediately after turning them on. i have NEVER had any good luck with a refurbished phone from Verizon. im starting to think there is someone in the distribution center that ships the phones out just doesn't like me. my fed ex guy and i are on a first name basis, he laughs every time when he comes to my place to drop off another phone. he laughs because ive repaired him and his daughters phone like 4 or 5 times and i cant seem to get a good working one myself. its really sad

    The only thing I can think of is that you are slightly out of sync when taking these photos and are capturing an alternate reality.

    you can call it what you want. trust me ive called it a million different things. there are millions of people in this world that dont go on these forums and explain their problems. i have like 8 or 9 friends with the driods and most every person has the same issues i have, they just dont care enough to do anything about it, or dont know that they can.

    i run a business and cant afford the time to deal with my personal phone being broken n such.

    Reguardless of camera orientation, if you rotate it in the gallery that should fix the problem, should it not?
    I suppose it could be a gmail/photobucket issue, but what are the odds of two completely different programs having the same issue....especially with the only common denominator being my phone?

    I bet most of those "problems" with your other droids were not hardware related and probably could have been fixed easily. Anyways what i recommend you do is backup ur sdcard and reformat it and put you stuff back on it, Do a factory reset and before installing any 3rd party apps check to see if the issue is still their if its not then u probably have a app conflict going on somewhere. If the factory reset option doesn't fix ur problems i recommend u reflash the droid using rsdlite and be careful when u do so.

    Also on a side not remember this is a smartphone and a very powerful and new device at that and most issues can be solved with a littel googleing or by browsing the forums as from what i gathered i would guess your issues are software issues and not hardware issues.
