Prior to a couple of days ago I could hear the sound and rotation my screen. Now I can't. In settings/general/usesideswitchto you can only tick one option if I tick mute then the rotation doesn't work but .i have sound. If if tick rotation I get rotation but no sound. No matter what I try. I,ve reset gone back to factory startup and still got the problem. The rotation works as does the sound but not together! I can see other people have had this problem and reset seems to solve it, alas not for me. The hardware seems ok. I,d be eternally grateful if someone could advise me on this

iPad 2, iOS 5.0.1

    Depending on what you've got Settings > General > Use Side Switch To set to (mute or rotation lock), then one function is controlled via the switch on the right hand side of the iPad above the volume switch and the other function is controlled via the left-hand end of the taskbar : double-click the home button; slide from the left; and it's the icon far left; press home again to exit the taskbar. The function that isn't on the side switch is set via the taskbar instead :


    So if the side switch is controlling roation lock, then open the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and swipe it to the right, and the icon far left is for muting/unmuting notifications.
