HELP!! accelerometer not working

in iPhone edited January 2014
Today I turned my iphone horizontal to view a webpage in landscape view... it doesn't work any more!

Anyone know if this is a known issue? I did a full software restore and that didn't fix it

I take care of this thing like it's my laptop, so it hasn't been dropped, I've done no hacks... I did the update a couple of days ago. Any ideas?

    Occasionally I have to quit and restart the iPhone browser to get it to display horizontally.

    I had the same thing happen. Went through the motions of a s/w reset to no avail (with Apple support). Apple support set me up with a new phone.

    An interesting note: My phone is a 4GB phone. I was thinking "here's my chance to get an 8GB for free!" - ah, no. They have 4GB phones, brand new, in stock, at every store. Bummer.

    But, I do have a new phone. My understanding is they take the broken ones and dissect them to see what happened. Hopefully they'll determine what causes this.
