...you know, emails, settings, springboard, WHEREVER.

On the springboard, the icons could stay in the same relative place on the screen, just rotate like they were stuck on with a pin.

Just seems logical to me... maybe they had good reasons not to mess with it, though.

that would be freaking sweet. They should atleast do a little update updates the interface a little.

That would be so cool. If that was possible, I could watch that all day :cool:

I have no problem with the applications themselves in portrait mode. It's the keyboard that bothers me.

My fingers are very far from fat. But I just can't type on the portrait keyboard. Landscape mode, I'm fine.

Yeah, the keyboard is the main thing. The apps themselves and the springboard don't BOTHER me not being in landscape... i just think you might as well take advantage of it.

i rarely, if ever turn the iPhone horizontally.

i don't like the keyboard when horizontal and i find it really annoying when the keyboard takes up over 1/2 of the screen, leaving me to find where i am actually typing.

At this point it's completely pointless. Even though not everyone has modded, I feel that the people that probably didn't mod are content with the interface they have. The people that weren't content modded and have an infinite amount of combinations already available for manipulating the graphics.

Oh, it IS possible. They've implemented more complicated graphical features than that on the iPhone.
