Default Keyboard on Storm2 wont go to landscape

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone have any idea why all of a sudden the keyboard wont switch to landscape mode ? I tend to use this method a lot so its really annoying. The device on the homescreen responds to me turning it 90 degrees and goes to landscape mode, but anything in messaging does not !

Did you try a battery pull? Usually takes care of weird issues.

I was always told to have the phone on when you do the pull - I have and there have been no bad results.

Yank the battery while the phone is running. This is called a hard restart. You will have no problems and its usually not a bad idea to do it once a week.
