    The phone also needs to be tilted a certain degree also, just turning the phone around won't help.

    Have you tried a system restore? If you have your accelerometer chip maybe broken or the sensitivity is a tad bit off.

    Hard reset it old buddy. Hold down sleep wake button and home button at the same time till phone shuts off and apple logo appears.

    don't think it would be a software issue. I am hoping its not a hardware problem or Im getting some free ****.

    I'd try powering it off (hold the power button a few seconds until you get the power off swipe strip) before I'd do a restore

    You seem like a funny individual lol!

    Try restoring it, see if that helps, if not return that hunk of crap.

    After the restore is it still stuck in landscape? Make an appointment at the genius bar as fast as you can, and they'll replace it no questions asked if they see it doesn't go back to portrait.

    You have this problem with a 3G right? If so, they don't give out any refurbs as of yet. I just got mine replaced monday because the signal was weak, probably a week antenna, but the guy at Apple looked at it, and he got a new one from the back, still sealed (this was after they told everyone they were sold out, but they have ones for replacements) and just replaced it on the spot.

    Hi,

    I had the same problem yesterday but it soon sorted itself out.
    I think 2.0 needs a patch cos it's definatley not 100% complete, roll on 2.1!
    Shame about having these issues after all the hype & waiting, I never had these issues wirth the 1st gen but hey.

    At this point I think it's pretty unlikely to be a refurb. How many defective phones could they have identified, repaired, and shipped out to stores as replacements in 4 days (1 of them a Sunday)?
