Had my Eris for several months and have enjoyed learning how to tweak it, from all the advice given here on this forum. Recently, I notice that whenever I open either my Gmail/Yahoo/Handcent to compose a message, that my message screen starts rocking back in forth for a second or so when turned from Portrait to Landscape, and then it enlarges and becomes the regular landscape size screen. it almost seems like it has sort of an animated motion to it when turning it from Portrait to Landscape. I have checked my settings and think I have unchecked anything that might be causing this animated (slowdown) motion, but could use your help in looking further to undo it. it looks cute the first time you see it, but then you realize that it costs you several seconds of time, each time, waiting for it to correct itself. I'm thinking I first started noticing it around the time I tried installing then uninstalling an unusual type of message app that just used you hand motions on the keyboard instead of typing full words (I forget the name of it). Any suggestions besides doing a hard reset ?
