    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    There is a sensor in the phone that instructs it as to the orientation of the phone. If you turn your phone upright and it doesn't change then either the phone OS has issues or the phone hardware has issues.

    Have you tried power cycling the phone to see if that corrects the problem?

    Turn the phone off, wait 30 seconds, and turn the phone back on.

    Another way to do it would be to remove the battery, wait 30 seconds, and turn the phone back on.

    Welcome to AF.

    I've moved this question to the Evo section so that the users with the same phone can better assist you.
