screen rotation software

Hello, I'm a cstomer n fan of BB and I love the art they make. I use the torch 9850 and have a problem with it everytime I get in bed.when I use it the screen rotates automatically even though I don't want it to. I have searched for apps that help with this problem "stop tilt" but they don't offer u a permanent fix until you want to set it to automatically rotate. Can the software updates include a solution to this problem? Its annoying everytime I want to chat in bed as it flips. Pls embed an option in the software that does that.

Re: screen rotation software

I agree, such a function should be part of the native OS. It's been asked for, for the full touch screen devices, for three years since the Storm1 was introduced.

Re: screen rotation software

Yes, it should be, what's the point of making a touch screen which will rotate when u don't want it to? I've seen the option on the I phone 4 which is brilliant. What's so hard that blackberry can't do to satisfy its customers?

Re: screen rotation software

Well, I can argue the other side, since you force it... when you rotate the device, it is SUPPOSED to rotate the screen.

 

I don't care about your iPhone comments. This is not an iPhone. For years the iPhone had no copy/paste function, do you think BlackBerry should have removed its copy/paste function to "get in line" with that piece of **bleep**?

Re: screen rotation software

I havnt tried any. Since they not reliable n u need to purchase them. Blackberry should have them out there for free on their behalf to download from the app world..but the optiion to lock the screen from raotating shud have been there in the 1st place. Blackberry isn't experimenting anymore as now they on game.

Re: screen rotation software

I find your answer/response to the question to be rather silly and somewhat offensive. However, one can well appreciate the added convenience of being able to disable the screen rotation whenever necessary. I totally agree that BlackBerry should incorporate such a feature on all their devices where the screen automatically rotates when the phone is moved from vertical or horizontal or vice versa. I believe many users would simply like the option to turn that feature on or off whenever necessary, The BlackBerry Playbook already has that feature so the technology is nothing new to BlackBerry. The original post is quite valid and BlackBerry should give this some thought.
