    I've tried the switch, which was set as a screen lock but it doesn't help. I changed the switch to act as a mute and it works fine, but the screen is still locked in portrait mode! Additionally, the compass app that I downloaded, and that worked fine before, is almost 180 degrees wrong now.

    Has anyone else had this happen before? If so, how did you fix it? Thanks for any help.

    Fixed! I went to Apple's support and they called me back. Still not sure what caused it but powering down and back up fixed it. And, I learned how to power my new toy down!

    It's a glitch.

    Have you tried updating to iOS 4.3.1 yet?
