    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 ?

    It sounds like it's a setting in spare parts, do you have that installed? If so, open it and uncheck the Fancy rotation animation.

    Thanks for the suggestions, as I do remember adding the Spare Parts app for a couple of days back then, and then uninstalling. I never thought this might be related to that, as I havent had that app for several weeks, yet my rocking animation continues. I guess I never noticed the issue when I had the Spare Parts app, as I only kept the app a day or so.

    I'll try and re-install Spare Parts to see if I can undo this, even though that seems odd to have to try and do it that way.
    Any ideas ?? I'm all ears to your suggestions !

    If you change a setting in spare parts and then uninstall the program, the setting remains the same. You will have to re-install the program and correct the settings in order to fix it. Also, I would consider keeping it around this time. Its a handy app and can be very useful.

    With spare parts, if you change a setting and then uninstall the application the settings will stay. You will have to re-install and look for the setting. There is one specific the rocking screen when changing from landscape to portrait. If you disable it and then uninstall you should be good to go. Good Luck. ;)

    I wanted to say thanks to JREED & SirSlayer for leading me to the answer. Once I read the first few comments, suggesting Spare Parts, I thought I might try installing/uninstalling to see if that might clear it. Then 30 seconds after trying that, your comments appeared here, suggesting to do EXACTLY that. It worked, and per your suggestion, I might try it a while. I forget why I uninstalled it so fast before, but it SEEMED like it might have been sucking my battery dry, real quick (or something similar to that).

    It's great to see folks that help each other, and even enjoy a good laugh when you arrive at the same solution, just as someone is suggesting it !
