my iphone 4s has a lock on the rotation. how can i take it off
Double tap the home button to show the multi tasking bar then swipe all the way to the left. Then you should see a circular arrow, that is the screen rotation lock.
screen rotation lock.
Actually, it's the portrait orientation lock. Unlike iPads, iPhones can't be locked in landscape orientation.
On your home screen, slide up from the bottom to show your Control Panels, the icon that has a lock with the circular arrow on the top right, click it off. I wish I can add photos on here to show you.
Don't bump old posts like this. The OP was almost nine months ago on iOS 6.
To qualify your comment, it should be noted that this is only the method for iOS 7.
