    so i tried some apps that use it, like my game armageddon squadron, and it pulls heavily to the right. so i got pissed off at my phone and exchanged it for another, and it still pulls to the right. so im thinking it must be the game. nope. 4 other accelerometer games all pull to the right.

    how could i calibrate the sensor?

    Sorry - my smartness on these matters is debatable, and I don't have any experience with that problem, b/c I don't play any games on my phone (other than sudoku - yeah, I know, whatever). The accelerometer does seem sluggish to me, but coming from a blackberry my opinion is pretty uninformed.

    I got a free level tool, and it has calibration setting, but I never really played with them or the app.

    I have found this for you to try.

    Hold the phone with the screen facing up and move the phone in a figure 8 five times. Then holding the phone with the screen facing your belly make five more figure eights.

    It was also suggested light tapping on the axis (right/left, top/button) will calibrate. Also suggested is a factory reset.

    move your hand as if you were writing the number 8 in the air.
