When i first got my iPad I discovered that the lock switch kept the screen from rotating. But now, when I try to lock it so the screen doesn't rotate, it just turns off the sound. How can i get it back to the original way?

Yes, you must of purchase the new software update for the iPad, thats why this is happening. The new software update replaces the rotation lock with mute. Luckly, they haven't got rid of the rotation lock completely, follow the steps bellow to lock the screen orientation
1. Open your iPad and go to the home screen
2. Double click the home button, and it should bring up a bar at the bottom of the screen(multitasking bar)
3. Swipe to the left once, and you should see a brightness controller, orientation lock, previous, pause/play, skip and a few others. If you dont see these, that means you have swiped the wrong way.
4. Tap the Orientation lock and it will lock the screen

This is probably the best ipad/ipod deal. It's a total steal as for a one-time fee of 50USD, you can get diverse ebook or comics book or newspaper for your device. Chek this out http://niche-edition.com/recommends/MyPadMedia
