    Auto-rotate

    I am new to Android and have my auto-rotate screen checked. However, I am in my main home screen (which has the weatherbug widget, pandora widget and that google search box), and when I hold it horizontally, it will not go into landscape. Is this normal?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    No, it's not. I have a home screen (in ADW launcher) that has 2x 4x1 widgets, and they auto-rotate just fine for me. Your accelerometer may be broken. Do your other home screens rotate properly?

    Hi Wera689,

    None of the 7 home screens will auto-rotate. however, as soon as I open like say the browser, or any application, it then auto-rotates.

    Don't fret, this IS normal. For WERA it is ADW launcher that allows the home screen to auto-rotate. There aren't many phones that do offer this on the home screens with the standard launcher (Dell Strak might be one because it's meant for landscape by default.) If you really want your homes screens to rotate I would try out a third party launcher first.
