This is not an issue but I guess a bug in my Windows phone. I found this in my Lumia 520 which has Windows phone OS 8.1(Developer's Preview) and I don't know if this is the case with Windows Phone OS 8.0 phones.

When I go to Settings → about, then my screen rotation lock(Set to locked, portrait) does not seem to work.

Is this a bug in my phone or is it in all the Windows Phones?

    You better report it to developers. dev.windowsphone.com/en-us

    Confirmed on Lumia 920 with 8.1 preview - Settings → About doesn't respect rotation lock.

    Yes, it's the bug that happened on my Nokia Lumia 920 as well.

  • In my 920 it worked. From settings and from action center too. Apr 22 '14 at 10:55
  • Does this happen everywhere, or only in certain apps?

That sounds like a bug that should be reported to Microsoft
