    Screen rotation looks like Russian roulette, never know when is going to work. I uploaded a MS Word document and want to read it as landscape but no dice, screen will not rotate.

    try a Soft Reset, specifically a hardware reset >>> hold Power button in (~10-15 seconds) until you feel a vibration.
    Phone will soft reset, it may clear up your problems, it won't hurt anything.

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunately the screen refuses to rotate no matter how many different fixes I tried. I even got the Sensor Emitter app with same outcome, it will not rotate.
    Can someone help me before I chuck this 'marvel' out the proverbial window.
    Please and thank you

    Many apps won't rotate. I was going to check some, but now I find nothing rotates, not even photos! Was working yesterday, screen lock is always off. Must be phase of the moon.

    Welcome to the club, one minute it rotates then...nothing no matter what. Rotation lock is always off; tried 'soft reset' several times but nothing works, It's really baffling, it feels like there is some perverse magic presence that enjoys messing with the users; on a more serious note maybe, just maybe the people at Microsoft are aware of this bug but they are too ashamed to come clean with us.

    I think that rotation is slow on the 635 due to the fact that it doesn't have a screen orientation sensor, it completely relies on the accelerometer for this so it is slower. Both my Lumia 521 and 920 have this sensor so they rotate faster.
