PLEASE can someone help me I have tried EVERYTHING and I can not get the landscape mode to function at all !!!!!!!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE i am going mental I have reset , rebooted re everything!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Do you have the rotation lock on?
This can be found on your home screen:
Slide from the top of the screen down to pull down the menu. You will see rotation lock.
Secondaly there are a few apps that do not permit landscape.

The landscape function appears to be random. In Facebook I clicked on a video and turned the phone to watch it but no, no landscape. I only saw the center of the video because the sides were clipped. I guess that's a Facebook app issue and not necessarily a Z10 issue.
Once again, seems that apps really aren't a Blackberry thing. Never has been and apparently, never will be.

I have had my Z10 for a few dyas now and agree; going from a Torch to the Z10, I am very reliant on ease of switching to landscape mode for extended typing/text.
Blackberry has come out with a truly great product this time, here's hoping they are watching the forums, and make an update for this problem soon.
It will also help when all the ship jumping app devs come back , and start to update their side of things as well.

Restarting Z10 didnt work for me. Although changing from landscape to portrait and back works in following apps: WhatsApp, Text/Email; Facebook; Badoo; Browser. BBM Does not work in landscape mode! However; if I am in portrait mode and goto HUB, turn into Landscape more, and then select to chat in BBM, it seems to work in Landscape mode. Blackberry really need to sort this out.! Good luck guys
