Things seems to be working now. I didn't do anything differently, things just started to work...very strange.

Hi, I found your application loaded on my 9900 and tried it.
The issue is this: As soon as I start the application it asks me to calibrate the compass. I do this, and after a while of moving and tilting(varies from a second to at least 2 minutes!) it buzzes to indicate success. As soon as I raise the phone to see what's around me it asks me to calibrate again ( I mean it asks within 1 or 2 seconds!!). This goes on and on: I calibrate, raise the phone to eye level, and am instantly asked to calibrate again! As you can imagine, this makes you application unusable for me; it also has made my arm hurt from trying to use it.
I have looked at the 9900 compass application and it seems to be working, but of course this is used horizontally, so I don't think this is an issue with my new handset.
So, what do you think? Have you tested on a Bold 9900? I do hope you don't just say it's my phone without testing at your end ;)
