How to Rotate a Screen on a Phone

Screen rotation on a mobile phone allows you to see the screen right side up no matter what position you have the device in. Some phones require you to enter a code to rotate the screen, while others have an automatic screen-rotation feature. While these phones usually have automatic screen rotation turned on by default, you may find that it has been disabled and you need to turn it back on before the screen rotates.
