    New iPad 2 crashing

    Had my new iPad 2 since 3 pm today, been using it the past couple of hours and it is now crashing after a few minutes of using an App. Different Apps and also in Safari. Using my home Wi-Fi, and connecting doesn't seem to be a problem. Am I missing a setting somewhere? Or what? Thanks.

    Try out lots of apps did ya?

    Double tap the home button.

    Behold the background apps task bar.

    Long tap any icon until it wobbles and exhibits a red minus sign, release

    Now tap every red minus sign to remove program from RAM.

    Tap home button to escape

    Restart the iPad by holding power button until slider appears. Push slider power down. Restart....resume activities.
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    Thanks. Did that. Looks like each app I tried (lots of them as you said) including "Settings, were in that scroll across the bottom. Is this something that should be done on a regular basis, or just when crashing starts? I realize that the iPad 2 has limited memory and that could be a problem if the apps are still using memory after closing them

    "Talking Ben" was left on my iPad. Did that for a couple of minutes. Closed that and iPad had not crashed. Then played a game that I had left on the iPad. Crashed after about 3 minutes. Wondering if I should start over with setting up the iPad. And if so, how do I do that?

    I would. It will be easy since you just got it. Just go into settings and you will find an option for restoring back to factory settings. Then you can set it up again via iTunes.

    Good to hear.

    Unsure what fubarred you yesterday but you should not be hesitant to install any app from the app store.

    Happy hunting!

    Took the iPad on its first field trip today to Barnes & Noble. Couldn't connect to their wi-fi, couldn't get to the agreement page. Then when I started working with the iPad, the crashes reappeared. Couldn't work for more than a minute with any one app. Did the above routine again, but kept getting crashes. When I came home, my iPad chimed and it was the USA Today app pushing a headline. When it worked earlier today, it was still hooked up to my Macbook. Starting to get frustrating. Is is related to being a refurb? Is there some setting I am missing? Back to the drawing board?

    Check date and time settings for accuracy.
