    Is there any way to disable auto-rotate on the Samsung Galaxy S? As in...can you lock the orientation to landscape or portrait?

    Why would you want to do that?

    Yes.
    There is an option in Android to disable auto-rotate.
    You can also download a free widget to your home screen for enabling/disabling auto-rotate with one touch.

    Fantastic, thanks for letting me know! :)

    ghostfox1, this comes in very handy say when you are browsing websites on your phone and you lie down. You want the orientation to follow your head/body, not gravity, so that you can still read when lying down. It is something that I have hated on my iPhone for ages and it looks like iOS 4.0 is newly introducing this feature. Great to hear that the Samsung Galaxy S will support it too!

    I guess I can see it, but I'd be using landscape, and it's more natural to me to lay down that way and walk with the phone that way as well. Comes from a full keyboard phone.
