    The figure-of-8 trick is for recalibrating the compass. If the horizon isn't level that suggests a problem in the accelerometer readings. Have you dropped the phone at all? It might be that you have a broken accelerometer. Try installing a level application and seeing if that works properly.

    thanks to all , had to call orange in the end , sat nav worked , a spirit level app worked fine too, however compass app failed like sky map , master reset has sorted it, but what a pain to do , hope it does not fail again cos handset has not been knocked or dropped .
