    Is it just me or is it my tbolt? Whenever I play any game that uses the position sensor, it's off kilter. To drive straight or aim straight, I have to hold the phone at approximately a 15 degree angle. I have calibrated the phone on a level surface numerous times. I even tried to calibrate it upright. :eek: Any clues? Is the same thing happening to anyone else?

    There are a few things you can do to improve the accelerometer accuracy.

    Install a compass app from Market, many have a calibration feature that helps with the compass accuracy, but also helps in general. The procedure usually involves moving the device in a figure 8, laying it down on a flat surface and rotating it, etc, very similar to what you say you've tried, but with specific directions.

    Try that and see if it helps.
