    I hope someone else has experienced this issue. My phone's orientation keeps switching back and forth between portrait and landscape. About every 4 - 30 seconds. Which means it never 'sleeps' so it kills my battery. I've closed and uninstalled almost everything, I've done a few factory resets, nothing works. How did this happen and if I get a replacement, how can I prevent it in the future?

    Im assuming you have tried disabling it.
    But just in case.
    Try that.
    You can also try a different launcher. And disable it in the new launcher (I.E. launcher pro, ADW, Go launcher, or launcher 7) I use launcher 7 and don't have any issues with f/c or glitches at all.
    Best of luck!

    It happens on the home screen, not just the browser. And I enabled and disabled it, played around with the animation, the pocket lock, etc. If I were in an app that had a specific orientation, it would stay or if I locked the screen on Kimble-fine, but otherwise, for every other screen (home, checking weather, messages, etc.) it would flop back-and-forth every 4 - 30 seconds. I guess I'm the only one that has experienced this issue. Hopefully it was just that phone (I sent it back).
