    What version of Android do you have on yours? On the original 1.6 version the home screen is locked to landscape, but in 2.2 it changes by tilting just like everything else. Not sure about 2.1 as I never installed that disaster of a build.

    2.1 had tilting options as well, but does the Streak have the sensors in it to detect tilting?
