Inspire not working correctly
I'm returning my Inspire today because after a few hours, the screen won't change between landscape & portrait mode. With a power off & back on it works fine for several hours. Changing the settings in Display does nothing once this starts happening.
Oh well, I really liked the phone otherwise. I may exchange it for another.

i did notice there is an option to lock the rotation. maybe you accidentally activated it? if not the accelorometer could just be bad. No manufacturer has launched 100% flawless phones. theres bound to be a bad batch somewhere sorry to hear that. But dont let it change your mind about the phone overall cuz it's still a kick-*** phone.
and just to be sure you know it doesn't do landscape on the homescreen unless you've installed launcher pro or another home screen program right? You're talking about internet? if it doesn't do it on the internet its either that setting of rotation or accelorometerHTC Inspire 4G CM7

Shemp: I don't know if you've already boxed it up for return or not, but if not, would you mind downloading a widget in the market called Auto Rotate Widget and let me know if toggling that is as effective as a power cycle? I'm not saying this is a solution, but I'm curious what the status of this widget looks like when this happens to you, and what happens when you toggle it.

I started reading this post and thought i'm immune ... lol - 5 min later I notice my app does not rotate...
Long story short - I installed your widget and it does not help solve the issue... will reboot now.
While annoying, this is not as detrimental as GPS not working - my gps works pretty good
Update - widget and rotation works after reboot.

Had no problems yesterday but I also switched back to the stock launcher. And was showing off the fast boot all night so that may have caused it to not happen since the shine was off and on a lot
Edit: Spoke too soon just happend. surely its just a software bug
