    My wifes new iPhone 5 screen refuses to rotate.

    Rotation lock is off. Restored and still the same.

    Any suggestions or is this a hardware fault?

    I had a similar problem with a previous ipad 3, it turned out the gyroscope was broken. Apple replaced it for me. If the rotation lock is unchecked and its not rotating could be a bad cake. Take it to apple and get them to check it.

    Try restarting the phone. If that doesn't work then get it fixed.

    Unfortunately nothing works. Even a restore.

    I guess its faulty.

    Same issue here

    I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I've tried restarting, closing apps and locking/unlocking the rotation. But nothing works. The rotation simply does not work.

    I'm going to my local Apple store tomorrow.

    I would welcome that problem... I hate screen rotation. I cant stand when the screen flips when I dont want it to do so. I always have screen rotation locked. But that little icon annoys the hell out of me.

    When I jailbroke my work phone (4S), I was able to hide it thankfully.
