    Hey,

    so I got my Droid 2 (or as it is called in Germany Milestone 2) just this week.
    I got two minor things that are bugging me. (see the other one here :) http://androidforums.com/droid-2-support-troubleshooting/217081-possible-reconfigure-keyboard.html )
    Otherwise I'm loving my new phone :)

    I got the auto-adjust option for the Display turned on but for some reason the screen won't switch to the landscape mode as long as I don't pull out the physical keyboard.
    That is only the case for the homescreens and the main app menu.
    Otherwise it works fine. For example, if I open the settings I get to look at them in landscape mode with the keyboard in our out.

    If anyone knows how to get my homescreen to adjust to the way I hold the phone, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    I don't know if you can do this by default, but if you use Launcher Pro you have the option to change this. It will auto rotate whenever you turn the phone.

    Hey,
    thanks for your reply. Is the Launcher Pro app the one with the yellow/black house icon by federico carnales? If i search the market for "launcher pro" i get 22 results and this appears to be the closest to what you said ...

    Yes, its the one by federico. It is a customizable home screen replacement.
