    Default IPhone:What does the lock with a circle around it mean?

    Hey guys
    Have a question to ask
    What does the lock with a circle around it mean. It's sits near the battery percentage. How do you get rid off it.
    Thanks

    It means your rotation is locked. Turn it on/off by bringing up the multitasking bar, swipe right to show the ipod controls and press the icon on the left.

    That's hilarious. I thought it was a repeat icon for the ipod controls.

    I knew there was the rotation lock somewhere but hadn't bothered to look for it. Thanks from me as well
