Does your Epic's home screen go into landscape mode with the keyboard closed?

    I'm pretty sure my home screen would do landscape with keyboard closed the first couple of days I had the phone and now it wont do it unless the keyboard is out. Anyone else have the same issue?

    The only time it ever does it for me is when I slide the keyboard out. Maybe your keyboard was sticking out just a bit or you are just remembering wrong.

    Look for the "AutoRotate Switch" app

    It doesn't do it on the home screen unless I open the keyboard, but in other apps, like Google Nav or the browser it'll switch with the keyboard closed.

    What I found interesting is that it only rotates one way, so if I have it in landscape and then rotate it 180 degrees the display is upside down. It's not a big deal, just something I'm used to from the iPhone (it'd be more of an issue on the iPhone due to speaker placement).

    I played around with an epic, and the homescreen doesn't turn to landscape when you turn the phone, unless some setting was off.

    btw, the vibrant doensn't do it either.
