    I just bought the Nexus One unlocked for AT&T and really like it. 1 wierd thing is that when I rotate the phone counter clockwise, the screen goes to landscape just fine; but when I rotate it clockwise it does not go to landscape "the other way". And, if I'm holding the phone 'normally' and rotate it 180 degrees ('upside down') it doesn't follow.

    My youngest daughter delights in telling me that her iPhone does this with no problem. What's up with that?

    Install FRF85B and it will rotate both ways.

    with FroYo it will rotate 'both landscape modes' (clockwise and anti-clockwise) but not upside down portrait mode

    i actually preferred the old way, when it only rotated one way... now it's harder to lay down and read w/o it rotating... ah well.

    Agreed. The two way rotation makes me dizzy ... or dizzier than I already am.

    Hahah true dat! I was typing a rather lengthy e-mail on the go today and somehow I got switched to reverse-landscape (as I call it). I pressed the charging led space of the screen like 5 times before I realized there was no back button there.
    And I used to be soo good with new technology, I'm getting old lol :p

    And I thought I was the only one who did that.
