I would like to turn off landscape mode, is there any way to do this? I hate when I am texting and turn the phone slightly and it goes into landscape mode and then I have to hold the phone perfectly straight for 5 seconds until it goes back. Thanks for the help.

Yes.

Assuming you have a jailbroken iPhone, install SBSettings from Cydia and the Rotation toggle for SBSettings, also from Cydia.

You'll then be able to turn off rotation at will.

The screen rotation is so annoying when using the phone while laying down on your side. Apple didn't include a global rotation lock in 3.0. I, as well as a few other people here, sent Apple multiple requests for the feature here, http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html. I encourage you to request it as well and I'm sure that they'll add it sooner or later. For now, you'll have to jailbreak if you want it.
