    dumb question but is she rotating the phone the right way around? also I think landscape mode only works for certain functions.

    check settings > Orientation. That has to be checked for the phone to switch into landscape properly.

    and if that doesn't fix it. it has a bad sensor. take it back to get a new one with her and make sure the sensor works.

    I do not think all apps support this, too. Is that correct?

    to test open up your browser and turn it so the trackball is in your right hand....if it doesn't turn then houston...you have a problem.

    Reminds me of a blonde joke.

    Try shaking to loosen up the sensor. I'm serious too.

    all apps i've used allowed ladsacpe mode if you use the keyboard otherwise the app dev get low reviews and slammed with you suck posts and the app sinks right to the bottom real fast.
