    I dropped my phone recently and now when I take a picture im forced to take a portrait style. And in the internet explorer same issue i can only see pages in portrait. Did i damage hardware? When i go into video in the browser it automatically goes into landscape then when come out its stuck on landscape.

    yeah, you killed it. Sounds like the accelerometer died.

    Damn. I wish mine wouldn't go into landscape. That stinks if it's the accelerometer though.

    My friend started to bang the phone against his arm and the accelerometer works again. What a relief... I was about to drive off a cliff.

    Not to resurrect, but a similar thing happened to me.
    I just shut down the phone (hold power and slide down the screen) and started it back up.
    It's rotating, as normal.
    I read about doing a hard reset, but I figured I would just restart it to see.

    Happened to my wife's phone. Didn't work for a few weeks and then our son dropped it and it started working again.

    Funnily enough she was happy when it was 'locked' as she gets annoyed it rotates and she has no way of locking it. GDR3 should bring things she misses...
