    Does this bother anyone else with a Moto Droid? Is there an app that has eluded my searches that corrects this?

    It's probably a matter of fitting all of the buttons in without resizing and reorganizing.
    I too would like landscape call mode though for the top bar drop down ease in the car.

    I can understand that maybe it could have been because the buttons would have moved out of place.

    What if the landscape screen kept the buttons in the same place, but changed the orientation of the picture and number. This bothers the heck out of me, especially when the phone is sitting on my dock and I have my headset on or want to use the speaker.

    Seems like it would be simple enough - put the phone in Landscape Mode, rotate the caller ID pic and number 90 degrees clockwise where it sits, then rotate, as a whole, the number and toggle button layout 90 degrees clockwise where it sits. Seems as simple as the difference between the Portrait/Landscape Modes of the Car Dock layout.

    Unfortunately, I know nothing about programming such things.

    Oh? Then find the thread he's speaking of. Because none of my searches turned it up.

    Whippersnappers here should not be so quick to snap back at people. Sometimes just googling something is the easiest. It seriously took me 3 seconds and brought me to the correct topic on this forum.
