    After loading the new up dated software 4.2.1 the screen rotation lock now does not work and displays sound off. The button below still works (sound) function.
    Does any one have a fix or is this a new bug that 4.2.1 has introduced....

    A friend has the same problem after loading the new software...

    It's not the only problem introduced by the new update.
    The photo app now strips out all the dates which were creating useful 'events' and replaced them with 101IMPRT, 102IMPRT ...etc. which are totally useless as they provide no useful information.

    @OP: there is neither a fix (except by JB) nor is it a bug. It is a design change implemented by apple to provide the same functionality as the side switch on the iPhone.

    @abriwin: more details needed, where are you seeing this and under what circumstances? All of my events are still in place.

    This is one of the reasons why I have not updated my iPad to iOS 4.

    Hopefully Apple will realize that the mute switch on the iPhone is to switch from ringer to vibrate, which has no value on an iPad.
