A few notes of issues I have found with moving to my new iPad that may be of help.
If you have an old iPad and you set up a new one, be aware that any changes you make on your old iPad, may be transfered to your new iPad. I loaned my old iPad to my SIL, and changed everything to a format for her needs. The apps wer no issue since they were synced from my MBP, but when I deleted all my Bookmarks, it did the same to my new iPad from 60 miles away, thru iCloud. If you have iCloud turned on, go into your iPad to Settings/iCloud and turn off bookmarks and anything else you find appropriate. It then puts the responsibility for syncing that through iTunes.
I experienced several problems with getting my old email acounts to transfer over. Make sure your password is good and be patient. It seem to me that the order of emails might make a difference. I had no luck until I got my Yahoo account running, and then I was able to get my work account up.
