    Your problem doesn't have a lot of details, but have you tried Menu, Settings, Display and uncheck Auto rotate screen?

    My setting is correct - auto orientation is checked - the problem is corrected only when I power the phone off then turn it back on but keeps doing it again

    Un-check auto correction & don't power off. Once re-booted, it will go back to default setting of auto correction

    orientatio

    I have the same issue. We want it to auto rotate and it isn't. When i power off and back on it auto rotates fine for awhile but then for some reason just stops working. Settings are checked for auto orientation but doesn't auto orientate even after holding a position for some time. I've only had this phone for a week and wish i didn't have these annoying issues. Hope we can figure this out.

    Won't totate in apps either. Browser, text, etc. I can two finger rotate photos in text app but nothing else. Have to restart then works fine. Also found that google sky map doesn't function right until i restart phone and that works off of the gyro in the phone. I'm stumped might need an OS update to fix. Fix this android please!

    I am having the same issue. It is in all apps that should detect the gyro, i have made sure the setting are appropriate for the rotation to work. Ive had the issue for about two weeks now.

    This is an issue for my Razr too! The appropriate selection was made in settings, but the screen will not rotate at all. This is so frustrating!

    Hmmm.... mine's been having the same problem now too.... starts when texting but effects all apps that would normally rotate.
    Have to power down & restart to correct. Started about 3 weeks or so ago and has been becoming more and more frequent as time moves on.

    Phone bought at release date in November, but issue is recent for my phone. Must be another sign that I need to trade for the Maxx ....
