    Check the settings under keyboard. If that isnt the problem, do a battery pull.

    Make sure u r turning it to the left, since Android only allows it to do landscape when the speaker is to the left.

    I don't have my EVO yet, but I went to the Sprint store to look at it this morning and they had two on display. One worked fine and one did what you described. Hope it is not an "issue."

    That's so funny! I got freaked out by the same "problem" - but it's true: EVO's screen only tilts if turned counter-clockwise (speaker on the left)..... Not a problem now that I know... ;)

    Thanks for the hint, THEFORCE !
