    Hey guys, just wanted to get your advice on this nagging issue. My accelerometer seems to be some what wonky. It works fine in the browser and messages but when i go into the photo gallery, it never works. I've tried putting the orientation lock on and then unlocking to see if that works, but nada. The only time it seems to work again is after i reset the phone, which then a few hours later, it gets stuck again. what do you think i should do? i hope it isn't a "restore device. go new device instead of using a back up"

    Accelerometer Not Working ANYMORE

    my problem is much worse, the accelerometer of my iPhone (iPhone 4) is no longer working and the phone is brand new, about a week first i would address it by restarting the phone but after a day it's not working at all on all applications that applies the accelerometer (namely, ipod, photos, messaging, games, etc.). i have tried from restarting, soft reset, hard reset, to force restore and it did not solve the problem...i'm currently using it without the functionality of the there any other remedy for this without sending the phone back to my carrier? or apple, for that matter? please help...:(

    Just take it to an Apple store and they will surely replace it! I had an Accelerometer issue with my iPhone 3G which was MUCH less severe and they replaced it no questions asked. As long as you live near an Apple Store, this should be pretty simple! Good luck.
