    hi all
    does your message keyboard only switch to landscape when you rotate the phone anti-clockwise?
    strange isn't it?

    Its not just the keyboard. Landscape only works in that direction. Full stop!

    I guess they don't have any lefties?

    I believe the forthcoming Froyo update is more flexible in this regard.

    I always thought it stupid with my iPhone that it could rotate to all sides. Why would you want to? The headphone jack is at the position that while using headphones the device would be most comfortable for landscape in the anti-clockwise direction. But what if you wish to view an item that is upside down? Would you want to rotate it forever or disable the autorotate just for those occasions? Or simply keep rotating by 270" then you will have it viewable upside down and opposite direction to view a portrait upside down.

    I'm a 'leftie' and I find it actually makes more sense going anti-clockwise :p
