    I thought this thing had an accelerometer in it? It only goes from portrait to landscape instead of 360 degrees depending on when you turn it like my Pre? When holding the phone in your right hand and it is connected to the charger and on the net the damn cord gets in the way. Am i missing something here? You have got to be kidding me if there is no way to change this?????

    Nope you can only turn it left. Designed this way... Not sure why that is a big deal.

    But not likely in Sense running on 2.2

    HTC is supposedly working on this but don't hold your breath. I'd rather have 2.2 before 2.5 or later is out.

    OK, so seriously. Why would you need to turn your phone 180 degrees upside down to see the screen right side up? I can somewhat understand wanting to turn it 90 degrees clockwise instead of counter clockwise. But upside down? Why would 360 degrees be any better than what we have?

    I agree with the OP. It should be able to auto-rotate any way you turn the phone. However, it's not a big deal to me.

    The cord gets in the way of what? Get a longer cord. 12.99.
