What is icon - lock inside circle arrow?
In my notification bar at the top of my iPhone4 screen (but not on my iPad2) there's a new icon right where the GPS indicator used to be. It's a little lock inside a circle, but the circle is actually a curved arrow. Anyone know what this is? Just noticed it.

Screen orientation lock. It means you can't turn your phone to landscape. To turn it off double click the home button and slide left on the bottom tray.

Itís actually one of the nice features. You access it double-tapping the home button, swiping right to get your music controls, and the rotation lock button is in the left corner.
Now, by default, it locks into portrait mode only. But you can rotate into landscape mode when itís locked and it will stay locked in landscape mode. All you need to do is bring up Assistive Touch (enabled from Settings > General > Accessibility) and use the on-screen rotation controls. I set my phone to toggle the Assistive Touch controls on triple-tapping the home key for easy access.

AppleCare(s) but almost completely untrained
I was on the phone with AppleCare discussing the interminable syncing issue (stuck on step 8 of 8) and I noticed this icon. Didn't know what it was, so I asked. SHE DIDN'T KNOW. She started searching for an answer. After 3-4 minutes I thought I would just search for it myself and found this thread and the answer. I shared the info with her and she thanked me. Good grief.
This is not the first time I spoke with AppleCare and the person on the other end was almost completely un-trained.
