How to stop the iPhone's screen rotating

Was asked yesterday about how to lock the iPhone's screen from rotating when you view it side on. I thought a few of you out there might find this useful, so here is a step by step guide to follow. It's really simple!

Start by double tapping the home button.

This will pop the screen up and show you your recently used applications. Once this appears, swipe your finger right, and it will show this screen:

This screen has a few options. You can play and pause your music, you can go to the iPod, or you can lock the screen, by clicking on the icon to the left.
Once you've clicked it, the icon will change to a padlock, as shown below:

If you press the home button once more, your screen will now be locked. And a little icon indicating this will appear in the top right hand side of the screen in what is sometimes referred to as the "tray", but next to the battery icon.

That's it - it's that simple. If you decide you'd like to turn rotation back on, you can do so at any time from any screen your on.
