I purchased some new apps, most were free, from my iPad 1. Then I attached my iPad to my PC windows 7 and backed up my iPad, installed ios 5.0.1. At least this time the upgrade worked and didn't lock my iPad so that i couldn't boot it. And I didn't have to go to the Apple store to get it working again. I then ran the update Apps. Now the new apps are dark and fail to work.
Also I have problems with my iPhone 3G after I updated the os to 5.0.1. The recently purchased iPhone APPs are not showing up. Also most of my older purchased apps are not showing up on my iPhone. The iPhone was updated a day after the iPad was updated.
I have tried reinstalling iTunes (repairing) and this didn't help at all.
Where I live I can not get any cellular service. And when i go to work I have cellular service, but do not have computer access to iTunes.
