Phone won't rotate to landscape

Make sure that, when you calibrate the G-Sensor, the phone is laying flat on a level surface (e.g. on a table, camera lens touching the table top).

G-Sensor calibration is Settings > Sound and Display > Bottom of the list

It may take a second or two for the display to swap between portrait and landscape at times.

I feel kinda stupid for not finding this earlier, but here is the fix:

Settings -> Sound & Display -> Orientation (about halfway down)

Checked, it will auto-rotate to landscape.
Unchecked, it will stay in portrait.

I don't ever remember changing this setting, but there it is. Works fine now, and I like my Android again.
