While the phone is on take the battery and SIM Card out for a minute or so then replace them & try it.

Yes while the phone is on take the back off and pop out the battery, it will then turn the screen off, Take the SIM Card out and wait a minute or so, then replace them both and try the phone again.

I had the same problem with my S2 once, what I did, I deactivated the screen rotation setting then turned off my phone, then turned my phone back on and then reactivated the rotation screen setting. Good luck.

tried but still no luck but thanks. Screen rotation works for all but the home screen still.

Don you mean rotate from portrait to landscape or up and down to sideways? if that what you mean the stock home screen doesn't do that but if you applied a launcher from the play store some of them do rotate. Go into settings for the launcher and there will be a setting to turn it off and on.
