    Hi!

    I got my Wildfire S a couple of months ago and it was working perfectly until I had to send it for repair because the power button started acting up. I got my phone back this week only to realise that they had updated the software to 2.3.5 and that the screen wouldn't rotate to landscape orientation, although the auto-rotate setting is enabled. When trying to run the e-sensor calibration, I only get a message saying 'calibration aborted'. I decided to reset factory data and to my surprise it worked, for a couple of hours at least. The screen rotated normally and even the e-sensor calibration ran normally. But then after a couple of hours I'm back in square one.

    Any ideas what is causing this and is there anything that I could do myself, or do i need to send it back to the repair again?

    I would really appreciate any kind of help!y

    It seems like sending it back to repair is a good idea, as this problem occurred after your got your phone back after the repair.
