    Hi all

    Just got my lovely new phone today but I can't get all the screens to rotate. The box that says 'Auto-rotate screen' is checked but, on some screens, nothing's happening. What am I doing wrong? Or does it only do it on certain screens? Thanks.

    Which screens? It wont do it on the menu or home screens, there's a couple of others too that I've forgotten, stuff like web browsers, messages, email and most apps should though.

    Np, if you do want the menu and home screens to rotate then try LauncherPro, although if you've only had the phone a few hours it'd probably be best to leave it for a while and get used to it first.

    If photos don't rotate... turn it off and on again

    I tried LauncherPro, but it was devastating to battery life, no matter how I played with the settings. I uninstalled it and battery consumption went back to normal.

    Does anyone else know another way to rotate the home screen? I have a cradle in my car which only holds it horizontally, and I'd like to be able to read it without turning my head sideways.
    Thanks

    Mine won't rotate either. My husbands does. Iif he goes on youtube, it rotates and the pic goes full screen. I have rotate checked. I've compared his settings to mine and they are the same. Anyone have any clues?
