    So looking for alot of flaws the Droid 3 has I figured it will all be fixed once we get ROOT.

    So after coming to the conclution I stopped worrying about the phone.

    But something happen.

    So all my friends started to play Pokemon again so I figured I get into the swing of things as well. With that being said I started gaming on my phone a a lot (Drag Racing, Pokemon, Mega Jump). After today I was playing Pokemon and I started to see the screen rotating on its own, I didn't think anything of it. So later on in the night I go to use my phone and I notice that its stuck on a upside-down horizontal position.

    Fuuuuuu-

    So... I'm thinking that since I had been gaming so much something happen to the sensor is just not responding anymore...

    I guess I need to take a trip to the Verizon store tomorrow... Agh.

    It's stuck that way even after a battery pull?

    Have you tried resetting the accelerometer calibration with an application? I think GPS Test has the option. Worth a try.
