Using iBooks on iPhone 4

Is there a way to:

1. Disable the accelerometer?
2. Customize the page turn area? Currently it is backwards of what I would like to use—I like to go forward using my left hand to tap the screen, not my right.

I figured out how to do both these things with Stanza, but it appears calibre sends all my books to iBooks. The only way I can figure to get them into Stanza is to drag and drop via iTunes. And I have so many books this just isn't a viable possibility.

While I am asking you iExperts these things, perhaps someone could tell me if I can use a custom sound for a text message alert. I use my text messages for work and they need to wake me up when I'm asleep. The standard ones that came with the phone just don't cut it.

1. do you mean rotation lock? yes.
2. yes. this is all you can set, you can not change the sizes of the areas. it's in settings -> ibooks.

Thank you. I had no clue settings for a program wouldn't actually be in the program.

I was able to set the page turn the way I want it. However, I still couldn't figure out the rotation lock. Could you explain how to set that as well?

Thanks,
Marcy

Press the "Home" button twice - this will bring up the list of currently running apps along the bottom of the screen. Scroll the list to the left - the rotation lock is the left-most icon. Tap it to lock the rotation; a "padlock" appears in the icon. Tap it again to unlock.

But that only locks it in the 'portrait orientation' - there's no option for landscape. The screen for the iPhone is too small to read on portrait.

Do you find accidental rotation to be an issue? I've not found it so myself.
