First of all, learn how to spell. It is not a proggie, it is a pierogi. See: Pierogi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Next: Anything is hackable. The Blackberry is a well documented platform. If you were to read the extensive documentation (which would make you a developer) you would find that most of these features are software accessible. There are numerous programs that lock the Storm in the portrait mode. In fact, this is done by most 3rd party apps that are not written with the Storm in mind. Some developers have mastered this and have produced software that is compatible with the Storm. Ascendo is a good example. In a matter of a few days they modified their software to resolve the portrait / landscape issue. The question in this thread is the inverse problem. To get the phone to stay in portrait, software must be "un-Stormed".
Could I do this for you: almost certainly. But I seriously doubt that you could afford it. Sorry. (Oh yes, I am a registered BB developer, but I do nto develop for anyone outside my own company). 73
