    Anyone have a solution?
    Take a picture with cell phone, download to computer, and then email it to someone.
    Result: Picture arrives upside down or turned 90 degrees.

    Rotating picture on computer and then sending by email, it is still arrives upside down or turned on it's side.

    Turn your phone on its side. I accidentally took a video the other day with mine held up and down (like you'd hold it f you were talking on it), and the whole video was that way. On my old android, it was smart enough to turn the video with the phone. Not this iPhone though...

    Thanks stevena198301, I'll try it. Already tried to "edit" the pictures by "rotating" the pictures, but that didn't help.

    May not be your problem, but it was mine.

    stevena: Hard to recreate the problem. I took a bunch of pictures rotating the phone 90 degrees for each picture. All were right side up.

    When I connected my cell to my computer to download these pictures I disconnected the camera from the tower. Half the old pictures in my album turned upside down. After a few minutes they were right side up.

    I think my house might be haunted! lol
