It means that your screen is lock. It will stay on vertical position even if you use/turn your iPhone in it's horizontal position. This is helpful when you read books or play games while you are lying on your side so you won't have have a hard time reading the screen. (=

There is a figure of a lock enclosed in a circle on my iPhone and there is no body or message on my emails. Pls help. Thank you.


If the lock with the circle is actually a circular arrow around the lock
Something like

it means that your phone is in Portrait Locked mode.


Will your phone go into Landscape orientation if you rotate the screen?

If this is the case then to unlock the orientation...

Double click the home button to bring up the multitasking bar.
Swipe left to right to scroll to the the orientation lock.
Tap it to lock or unlock.


Not sure what you mean about the messages.

I have a verizon samsung cell phone. It is locked. There is an icon of a cell phone w/ a circle w/ a slash through it @ the lower right corner of the phone in this icon. how do I get it unlocked?


This icon basically means you cannot make calls, it normally means either you have mobile signal turned off or your handset has been blacklisted. Call Verizon to check the blacklist status.

How do i get my flash to turn back on


Hi! To turn On the flash you just need to press the flash button on the top of the camera., Flash button is like a down arrow or lightning icon., make sure that the flash symbol is set to A -icon or eye- icon or may be a down arrow symbol., if you see on your LCD a circle icon with a down arrow it means your flash is off., Gudluck!
