Hey guys, this is my first time posting but have been keeping up for a while. I was just wondering if anyone else is having an issue with the EVO changing orientation on you when you rotate the phone?
Me and one of my co-works both have the phone and mine is having no problems at all, and the other one isn't switching the orientation during messages or phone pages or anything, and the only difference between the two phones is the other one has a screen protector on the phone, so i am guessing that a screen protector might be causing some sort of issue with the orientation flipping, is this possible you think?
And yes both phones have the orientation option in "sound & display" checked.

thats funny cause the evo i played with at the sprint store would not rotate the screen no matter what i did. i was using the web browser, and i thought i was just crazy, but couldnt get it to rotate no matter what settings i tried. maybe there is a bad batch? this was in socal.

g/f fone is having the same issue--the orientation has suddently stopped working since yesterday. I have checked & unchecked the orientation multiple times but there is no luck so far. Resitting the battery offered no help so I might have to try a cold RESET. I hope Google or Sprint is reading this. Mine is working just fine.
UPDATE: Brought the fone back to Sprint store and they did a hard reset. That fixed the orientation problem. Hard reset will wipe out everything on the fone including the contact list. They restored the contact list back afterward.

My orientation automatically switched when the phone rotated just like I expected initially. Now it will not change orientation. The orientation switch is on and I rechecked the calibration. There was an initial update to download, which I did not do immediately, but I didn't notice if the orientation stopped after that download. I am not excited about having to do a hard reset. Any other solutions?
