    The accelerometer on my Torch 9810 seems to lock up quite frequently. More than 50% of the time when I need to rotate my display (for taking a landscape photo or viewing a website in landscape) it simply won't rotate when I tilt the phone. I'm usually able to get it back by navigating to certain websites in the browser. This works some of the time, but not all the time. Sometimes I can get it to go back to normal with a battery pull reset, but that doesn't work every time either. Bottom line is I'm always able to get it to go back to normal by fiddling with it, but it's a rather annoying problem.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Two questions:

    1. Are you using a case on your 9810? Sometimes a case can put pressure on the lock button and causea problem.

    2. What OS version are you running?

    Yes, I am using a case. However, it doesn't seem to matter whether it's in a case or not. I can be holding my 9810 in my hand and browsing websites, and suddenly won't be able to tilt the screen. Currently using which I am unfurtunately unable to upgrade because it's an enterprise phone and the abaility to upgrade is locked down by my employer's IT policy.

    I would talk to your IT person to see if you can upgrade to one of the 7.1 OS builds. I think your problem would be cured with an OS upgrade. Good luck.

    I'm at the latest os build and my 9810 no longer flips from portrait to landscape. Any other suggestions? I did not 'migrate' from an earlier os version.

    I found a tip on another board suggesting that the device 'thinks' that the physical keyboard is still extended. I slid the keyboard open and closed a few times, a little bit forcefully, and the function returned. Perhaps a bit of dust or something became lodged in the track and prevented the sensor from detecting the closed keyboard condition.

    I was getting the same issue but it is only a software issue, since I upgraded the OS my acceletometer doesn't freeze anymore
