    used ipad 1

    I wish to buy a used ipad 1 for my grandchildren so we can face-time. How would I "format" the unit to wipe all previous info and apps from the thing. Or, is this something that I should ask the seller to do. Perhaps ipads can't be formatted, I have no idea. Please advise

    thanks!

    Settings/General/Reset/Erase all contents and Settings.

    Do NOT do this if its jail broken. In this case, have a look at the Hacking section for further info.

    There's a more than even chance the vendor will do this for you prior to the sale. Most people would, to clear out any personal data they have on there. And if anyone offers an iPad with a load of games on it, don't be taken in. Any apps will be keyed to their AppleID, not yours.

    If you need any more info, just holler and we will be here.

    You can't do Facetime with an iPad 1 since the original iPad doesn't have a camera.
    Current Apple Devices:

    iPad 3-Black-16G-WiFi
    iPod Touch 4th Gen-Black-8G-WiFi

    As long as you use the iPad 1 within its limitations, it will continue to give you years of good service.
