    No there is not. But I think that there should be an option to turn the whole UI into landscape. Like in setting you could choose landscape or portrait.

    You cant do that, I think he was just saying you should be able to. Like Apple should put that in the next update.

    there are plenty of 3rd party apps that will let you do this for SMS and Mail. I agree the whole UI should be in landscape not just one or two apps. I have a feeling apple is working on it. Almost all the current touchscreen phones with accelerometers can do this so why cant the iphone? it's def capable.

    Agreed, but that's also the case with MMS and copy and paste support, both of which are common features on most if not all smart phones, and neither of which Apple has considered apparently.

    In iphone version 3.0, most of the native programs (like SMS, email, notes, etc) will be able to turn and type in landscape as well as copy and paste

    i don't know if this is old news because the latest comment was in 09 but i have the 3g and the only way i can type w/ a landscape keyboard is by turning my phone to silent with that little lever on the side by the volume buttons. after i do that, my keyboard turns sideways... it's weird and slightly annoying.
