I need to disable both at the time, but I can't coz disabling the lock rotation turns mute on, while disabling the mute locks the rotation, so I'm looking for a way to unlock both of them together, thnx for ur help :)

- Set the lock rotation like I described above.
- Then unlock the screen if it is locked with the side switch - if it is locked.
- You will see the lock icon in the upper right corner of the iPad if the screen is locked.
- Then double tap the home button and swipe to the right.
- The speaker icon is all the way to the left.
- Tap on the speaker icon if it has a line through it.
- The line through the speaker icon means that the system sounds are locked.
Tap above the task bar when you are done.

In the settings - set the side switch to lock the screen. then flip the side switch back and forth to make sure that the switch is controlling the screen rotation.
If it is controlling the rotation, go to the software switch in the task bar and see if the speaker icon is showing.

Use side switch to control Rotation
Use Task Bar to control Sound (Mute)

If I check lock rotation on "Use The Side Switch To: " menu, the sound volume icon still appears when I press the side switch back & forth. In the task bar, the volumn icon appears. Seems to me the Lock Rotation is not functioning. It's locked up all the way. I have the same problem with Sawaf7. We want both speaker volume control (for side switch) & at the same time the rotation remaining unlocked. The current situation is just only to choose one, not having both.

OK. I just got it. Seems to I got confused with the physical side switch & volume control. Thought the side switch was at the same time volume control switch. Missed out the tiny button. Problem solved. Thanks!

Me too! I have a Smart Case and the side switch isn't as accessible as it should be. I was thinking the side switch was the volume button also.
The images that Diavonex posted helped tremendously! Thank you!
