Default Potrait vs Landscape

Please Login to Remove!

I do almost all my viewing and typing in the portrait view. Is there a way to stop the Storm from switching to the landscape view at all?

Thanks

There's an app for it:

Empower HTML Email Viewer, Blackberry Threaded SMS and more (called StopTilt)

Don't have it myself....there's a thread going on about it in the Aftermarket Software section of the forums.

Storm Rotation Wizard - Personal Productivity BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Software Store

I use it and it works fairly well. It doesn't work with some apps, but you can't argue with the price.

landscape comes in handy (videos, for example)...the keyboard is easier in landscape as well....

but i too use portrait a lot. the orientation is better for using the web than landscape.

Don't buy it. Storm Rotation Wizard doesn't run properly yet. It doesn't remember its last position which means no memory. If you do battery pull reset you have to reset all the setting again and again.
