    Guys, the point here is that people are having orientation problems with APPs, not just the home page.

    My web browser is stuck in Landscape mode. I’ve tried to force quit the browser, restart, etc. Nothing is working.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    I just got the droid yesterday and the home screen would go landscape i makes me mad that people say that it isnt capable of doing this, that is just bull. Shortly after getting the phone i got a message that said to update so i did, went to bed and now today i wont rotate at the home screen and even in the quick search function which is ridiculous because i like to use the landscape keyboard, so i think today i might take a trip back to verizon and see what they can do and maybe even get a new phone we'll see....

    The phone may have rotated with the original version of Android 2.0, but with the update that all the Droid's have on them now (2.0.1), you are not able to rotate the homescreen without opening the keyboard. Verizon will tell you the same thing and each replacement Droid you get will do the same thing. What I'm trying to say is...don't waste your time.

    If you have the Motorola card dock, the magnets should put it into navigation mode and then you should be able to use landscape mode. Most apps allow landscape mode as well, it's just the stupid homescreen that no longer rotates without the keyboard being open. It would be nice to have the option to choose which you prefer, and I have heard others say the same. Let's hope Google adds this option down the road with future updates.

    i bought my droid last night and was auto rotating. and i thought it might have been a certain app i loaded today. so i did a search on here, and look what i find.

    it does not auto rotate now, but i am 100% certain it did this last night. because i was showing a iphone user some of the features of the phone. that being one.

    On the issue of auto-rotate, I have the car docking station for my Motorola Droid and usually have the map/traffic displayed in landscape mode. Sometimes, when I hit a small bump, the map will go into portrait mode, even through the Droid is in a landscape orientation.

    It may take 5 to 10 seconds for the phone/map to return to landscape mode. This is annoying. Does this happen to others? Any comments?

    As was answered in your other post, The accelerometer is being tricked but the sudden jolt into thinking the phone was rotated.....

    Yes.. and I am sitting next to my uncle at this very second and looking at his Droid.. and his screen will auto rotate and mine will not. We got them and activated them at the exact same time.
