I wish I could help. I have exactly the same problem. I thought the display woud automatically change to landscape when I turned the phone 90 degress, but it doesnt... ever. VERY annoying.

Ive sorted it!!! what to do is hold the powe button down until the phone counts down from 3 and turns off hen let go of the button. wait two minutes then pull the battery and let the phone power up normally! - That sorted it for me - it's a bit slow to rotate but ok!! good luck!

Seems to work fine for me.
In HUB, I can rotate the device and the screen changes landscape/portrait no problem.
Make sure rotation lock is OFF. the little icon turns blue if lock is ON.
Many apps and screens do not allow orientation changes. For their own reasons they choose to lock one or the other.
If I am in HUB in landscape, and swipe up from the bottom bezel, it returns to the main screen in portrait mode. Looks like main screens are locked to portrait for whatever reason. (probably an Apple patent about showing main screens in landscape mode or something...)
Music app doesn't rotate. Picture app does.
If landscape/portrait works in HUB and pictures for you, then your device is working.

why would any one use a phone in landscape mode, you then have only about 1% of the screen available, in that case you are better off using a Playbook which is made to be use in landscape
