    So why does my phone change orientation in certain apps (email particularly) even though I don't rotate the phone? Is there a setting for this I just cannot find?

    Its Accelorometer is a little sensitive.

    You can disable the orientation switching outright by going to the Settings.

    There's even an app called Auto rotate on/off in the market.
    I use it, can't stand my phone switching orientations when I don't want it to.

    I have the other problem sometimes, can't get it to change orientations no matter what I do...

    Tried the G-sensor calibration?

    Menu > Settings > Sound & Display > at the VERY bottom of that menu is the G-Sensor calibration. Just lay it on a level surface (as level as you can find, anyway), and calibrate.

    Place the phone on a flat/level surface.

    Menu > Settings > Sound and Display > at the bottom G-Sensor calibration

    I know I saw it somewhere, I'll give it a shot.

    Thanks!
