Do you see a Padlock with a circular arrow in the status bar on top?

Thank you.

Ok, then the Rotation Lock is enabled.

To disable the Rotation Lock:

-double tap the Home button.

-swipe the icons to the right until the iPod controls appear

-you should now see the Padlock with the circular arrow

-touch the Padlock and it should unlock the screen rotation

Reply back if that did not work

Thank you,
