    Actually, you can just tap and hold, until the “Copy” option appear, then you can release your finger… The “Copy” option will eventually disappear and you still have the rotation lock.. Thanks for this tip…

    Or, if you have iOS 4 and a newer device (3GS, iPod Touch 3rd Gen, iPhone 4) you can double press the home button, slide right, and press the rotation lock button. But for 2nd Gen iPod and 3G owners (like me) this is a nice workaround.
