I dropped my iPhone this morning. There is no visible damage so I thought it was OK but now i've notices that the screen no longer auto rotates when I go from portrait to landsape. Funnily enough, games like cuberunner work fine in both orientations, but coverflow, safari etc no longer register the movement.
Is my accelerometer knackered? Are they very expensive to fix/replace?

however, i have never dropped my 3G before
did you have NoRotation installed throuh cydia? try re/uninstalling it...

As far as not being dropped safari not moving the only thing i can mention is do a restore. If that does not work try downgrading to a lower firmware. If that doesnt work replace your board
