    Screen rotation needs to be supported by the app. Some rotate, some don't. The default Samsung launcher does not support rotation. If you want homescreen to rotate you will need to use a third party launcher like LauncherPro or Go launcher etc.

    Also check if auto rotation is enabled by pulling down your status bar.

    My phone never rotated in home screen and in main menu. I guess it's their default setting.

    Yeah .. The screen only rotates in the applications that support it.most probably samsung has omitted the home screen auto rotation to save battery..

    can someone help me out with auto rotation? When i enable auto rotation, all apps like messaging or settings or any in built apps are seen landscaped. Even when i turn my phone in normal (portrait) position, it stays landscaped. My accelerometer is working very normal. Please help me out.

    It takes time for it to rotate. Also, if your settings are all right, you need to incline your device to a certain angle for it to work. Try tilting your device up and down (left and right). After a few experiments you will get it working and probably also get to know the trick how to do it in future too. :)
