i may post my own thread, but part of my problem is yours.
out of the blue today i am at my small business with my phone sitting by my cash register and my staff member said they heard a beep sound. i thought it was a missed call. but when i walked over i saw that my phone turned on by itself?
it gets weirder....it was showing a blue screen with a clock and some settings like alarm and daily brief etc.
by doing a search i found out this screen is a program i dont remember seeing on my phone as an application before, its asif it suddenly appeared
it is a samsung home option and it has added an application, at least i dont remember it....for a car option. I definitely know this, i have never seen nor opened that program ever in my phone use. didnt know it, or the car home option...existed.
it has two screen choices for this.
but the odd part is that when i tried to exit it, my screens were all in landscape mode and would not use the built in accelerometer to go vertical. Further odd was that i would hit the home button and instead of going to my middle screen out of 7 it would go back to the samsung 'desk home' screen.
so to sum up....it turns on by itself...with me ten feet away...shows a screen and app i have never even known i own...much less use or have opened...it is stuck in landscape mode and will not go vertical.
it has not been dropped recently and i am in canada and did do the 2.2 update a month ago. but it has been working perfectly normal til now. i dont use a backup program, so i am worried to try reset. i use samsung kies backup which does save contacts etc but it always removes and messes up all my screens and i have to add widgets and shortcuts and all the painstaking stuff i have customized.
does anyone know about this? Although the OP only mentions it is stuck in landscape, without mentioning my other issues, it is odd that mine happened this morning at about 11am local time and his went into landscape and stuck on the same day
