    so for some time now my iPhone has been acting wierd lately. What I have diagnosed is an delayed/unresponsive accelerometer. For example, when browsing in safari I hold my iPhone vertical then when I want to go into horizontal mode I hold my iPhone horizontal and and it takes maybe 20 seconds or it just doesn't respond at all and then about 2 minutes later it spazzes and by that time I don't want it horizontal. I know it isn't froze because I can still scroll up and Down. It is the same case for iPod and xplane. At first I really didn't care but now it is irritating. And I have reset it and still didn't improve. Should I take it in? Also if I do which one should I go to apple or best buy(I have the $15 coverage plan)?

    Take it to Apple, they will probably replace it!

    As long as it's under warranty and it wasn't caused by physical damage, it will be covered and they will fix it by giving you a replacement or repairing it.

    This is happening to me also, sometimes it works fine and sometimes it wont respond at all. I'll take it in but I'm sure it will work fine when I take it in!!
