Hi !
I've just done a soft-reset with my 2020i and now I don't see the icon for rotating screen (right bottom of the screen)

I don't know what to do then I ask you if is possible to restore this element without hard reset.
Thanks in advance :wink:

Missing Rotate Icon
I have the PDA 2 which also has recently lost the rotate icon from the tool bar. I have put this down to the installation of the SPB extended theme and the inclusion of SPB diary utility. I have included the rotate icon on the SPB utility screen and it works fine. No real issue about it's loss from the tool bar. What I do have a problem with is the bubble when my bluetooth headset is on, and I either receive a sms or get a missed call. The bubble will not allow me to retrieve anything I have to look at the indicator light to see it's a missed call or go into SMS to see what is there. Anyone else experience this and has a cure?????

The rotate icon dissapears on mine often too, usually a soft reset fixes it but i dont use it too often because i find it to be buggy.
Try mapping a button to the rotate function.

The bubble problem is common too, sometimes it decides to stay at the top when it is suposed to disapear, ive even seen it display ?????????? when you click on it.

End of the day i think there just OS bugs, nothing much to cure it atm

Thanks guys for your replies. :wink:

So I have uninstalled IP Dashboard Monitor (the last software I have installed before getting the problem) and after a soft-rest my rotate screen icon was showed in the tray.
Now I know. If you install that software your icon will miss.

About the bubble, I also think it's probably a bug :roll:

Thank you again

I found that SPB Diary and All phone profile sofware (ie, Pocket Zen Phone,Phone Alarm and Pocket Profiles) Disable the Screen Rotation Icon.

Also Sometimes SPB Weather when installed to MMC or Storage,when installed to Phone memory works OK.

I had this problem, it's actually to do with the Today Screen items not initialising quick enough. Search this site for NoPluginsToday and follow the instructions, I don't have them to hand but I found the solution on here and now I have all my icons back in the task bar.

One more time, I miss the icon again and this time the cause is TomTom Navigator 5.

Now I think this is a BIG bug of qtek 2020i, why I miss the icon ? :?

Is there a way to create a shortcut to screen rotation function ?

Thanks guys.
