    My experience with BlackBerry Z10 Rotation Lock is that it does not remain set until it is turned off by the user, that is, it appears to unlock at random. This is frustrating as once the screen goes landscape, it takes some effort to make it go portrait again.

    How do you lock the screen in landscape? I can’t seam to use the rotation button to lock it in anything but portrait? Would like to type in landscape without the screen jumping between the two.
