Screen Flipping Problem?

Hello, is anybody else having a problem where the screen will randomly flip between horizontal and vertical orientation when you have the keyboard slid out typing an e-mail or text message? My brother and I both just got Touch Pro's (from Sprint obviously) and we are both having this same issue. It is extremely frustrating when you're typing and it switches to vertical, because the keyboard backlighting goes out, and the soft buttons on the screen move right when you're going to push them.

I'm also having the problem where my weather won't update automatically, it'll just say "updating" forever and not actually update. I turned off automatic updates and now it works fine when I manually tell it to update, but that's not how it's supposed to work.

Also have the random senseless error message a couple others were having about some subscription when I turn it on in the morning.

Basically, I have ALL of the problems I've read on this forum, which makes me pretty frustrated with this phone at the moment.

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

The only flipping issue I have, is when I am using Opera with the keyboard closed, in landscape mode. When I open the keyboard to type something in, the damn SIP pops up, but then disappears when I start typing, and when I close the kb, the phone switches to portrait, even though I am still holding it in landscape mode.

Kind of annoying, but it has taught me not to use the hw kb in opera.

I find myself not really using the hw kb much, quite honestly... most of my text messages are just a sentence or two, and I could have knocked them out on PocketCM keyboard faster than I can tilt the device, slide out the kb, wait for rotation, start typing, wait for lag of text appearing, then close up the device...

dunno. but I still like it.

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

Just curious, did you try the GSensor and recalibrate under settings/system?

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

That was my first thought as well, but the g-sensor seems to be calibrated just fine, it works perfect in games and when you open the program to calibrate it, all is well.

Is there anyway to just make it so when the keyboard is open it's landscape, and when it's closed it's vertical?

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

There was a thread about this and I believe the person said they ended up just taking their TP back to BB and getting a replacement. The replacement had no issues.

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

I have the flipping problem as well, but it is only intermitent. I cannot tell if it is hardware or software. It happens and nothing I do stops it that I can find. It works properly more then it does not.

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

Re: Screen Flipping Problem?

I had this problem with my first Touch Pro. I returned it to Best Buy and exchanged it for a new one and it has been perfect. See my thread at:
