    Great -thanks JA. Icloud is now working in settings!!

    If you don't think there is much of a risk I will try reset and see what's happens.... Fingers crossed.

    I'm now feeling more positive about the Forum because it has already solved one of my problems. . Thanks

    Even better JA. Not only is my iCloud now working but all my backed up documents from Numbers and Pages are listed there and when I opened both apps they have all come flooding back!!

    Thats really helpful and effective advice. Just what I needed. I think this may resolve ALL my outstanding problems with iOS7! one thing which seems to have happened with the upgrade is that I seem to have more free storage now. I only have a 16GB memory ipad2 and have been having to juggle apps removing one whenever I find a new one I want.

    I have been hoping that iMatch for music may enable me to put more music in the cloud to make space. If iOS7 is able to help here this would be really useful.

    Thanks for your help JA and the archangel. You have one Forum newbie with a very positive experience of using the Forums.... I'm sure I'll be active again and maybe try and help others with suggestions where I can.

    A hard reset is where you simultaneously press the home and power buttons until the Apple loco appears on screen, then releasing both buttons. The iPad will restart on it's own.

    I do not know if this is fact or my opinion but- holding the sleep and home button is a soft reset. Because it's the minimal intrusion into the system. A hard reset is through settings, reset, "reset all settings" and "erase all content and settings" because these affect more of the system. Myself, any issues I've encountered typically get resolves with the first one, if not have definitely been resolved by the second. Ive never had a issue get resolved by the first one that cannot get resolved by the second first. Im not picking for an argument, just want to point out their are the different types of resets as options for folks. Just an example: i had a iPhone 3GS that always functioned well. On a random morning where i did nothing different my battery started discharging rapidly. I mean several dozen times more than normal. It went from full charge to 20% or so in a couple hours with almost no use. I did the sleep/ home button reset with no change at all. Skeptical,(about not loosing important data) i did the "reset all settings" and that brought the phone back to normal.

    The term Hard Reset is normally used on these forums to describe the procedure I mentioned in my previous post. What you describe is known as Reset All Settings.

    Additional information:
    In general, a "soft reset" means holding the Power button until "Slide to power off" appears. (Turn off device). You'll find the term "hard reset" for the procedure scifan explained on most websites in the internet.

    I've always wondered why people here call it a hard reset when it is actually a soft reset
