There should be a screen rotation setting in the options. I'm not sure where as I don't own a Torch model.

I've had this happen to me. The screen stops rotating. I re-boot solves it. What a great OS.

I do not believe there is any options with regards to screen rotation or sensitivity. I did searched the options on my torch as well as searching google and wasn't able to find anything.

It also happend to me i've tried everything, but the thing that worked for me i dont understand whyy but it helped, is to let your battery drain COMPLETELY that the phone would turn off by it's self and when it's completely dead charge it(turned off) and when it's finished remove the battery for 30 seconds and then see if it resolved your problem.

You shouldn't let your battery drain completely as the batteries that blackberry uses should not be drained below 20%. Draining below 20% can cause loss of battery life.

Thanks.
Drove me crazy when I got my 9810 as well. You have a two piece case on it like a GRT?

There seems to be a orientation sensor located between the main body and the top of the sliding keyboard that doesn't consistently register.

What solved my issue was opening the keyboard and slamming it closed multiple times, which seemed to free up the sensor. You obviously need to use some judgement as to how hard to do this, but it did work for me. I haven't had a problem in the months since I did it.

The issue does not seem to be OS rev related, and rebooting is only a very temporary solution.

And others will give the tip that it is a terrible idea to let your battery drop below 20% as it could result in loss of data.

I THINK DROPPING THE BLACKBERRY MESSES WITH THE SENSOR.
HOWEVER, I JUST FLIPPED THE SLIDE UP/DOWN, UP/DOWN FOR ABOUT 4 - 5 TIMES WITH MILD TO MODERATE FORCE AND THE HORIZONTAL/VERTICAL FUNCTION WAS BACK ON. I INITIALLY REMOVED BATTERY, THAT DIDN'T SOLVE MY PROBLEM.

Thanks Captain Obvious, but posting in all CAPS is rude.

never happened to me and I have run it down many times to the red on my old battery. no improvement in battery life with a new battery that has never been run down.

low memory on the other hand can cause stuff to go missing

I had this happen to my 9800, but I'm pretty sure it's mechanically messed up from being dropped. I have to squeeze the slider and body centrally on both sides at the same time to get the flip functional. This proved to be a pain in the a** so I bought a 9810 off of ebay to tie me over until BB10 is launched.

No, it's because you are a spammer.
