    Lastly, in Singapore consumer does not possess any right to return an unsratched defective product for a full refund. Unless the particular product are still in the sealed box or has not deliver to you, and only applicable if you purchase the products with Giant store. Only if we willing to take more hassles and own precious times to file in a complaint to our CASE (Consumers Association of Singapore). With some process payment make, they'll try to write to Apple. If you're not willing to make any payment to them, they will just jot down your case for record purpose only. There's alternate way, lodge in your complaint to Small Claims Tribunals. Again this also require a small lodgement fee.

    Some of my thoughts,

    Since when, the consumer world has became so pathetic?

    Since when, the consumers are at the mercy of a brand? In this case Apple.

    Since when, buying a new product should keep our fingers cross?

    Since when, buying a new product are like putting your fate on a Russian roulette chance?

    Since when, a consumer have to blame him/herself if you've just newly purchased a "DOA" tablet?

    Since when, it was the consumer fault not accepting a defective product?

    Since when, a consumer are supposed to be happy with a newly purchased but defective product?

    Since when, a consumer are suppose to sell off the newly purchased defect product at his very own cost and losses?

    Btw, there aleady tonnes of victims in this new iPad constantly no 3G connection issues. There's also many of them don't bother to join a forum or make a posting as they know absolutely no one in the forum can help them except Apple.

    Apple has released IOS version 5.1.1 which supposedly fixed the 3G connection issues. If you are suffering with this problem (and are not interested in jailbreaking) you should update immediately.

    Hopefully NewForce can finally get back to enjoying a normal stress free life

    Thank you very much f4780y.
    Yes just saw that news today, but I have yet to update the 5.1.1 as 3G download was not available. Will have to wait to knock off from work and update it via home WiFi. Hopefully I'm all happy an iPad user again, just like the great time I had using iPad2.

    Everyone know, beside the thread here and those in Apple Support Communities forum, there's many other languages forum the same problem claiming, including those hundreds of victim in German forum. If they notify users through email much earlier and telling all of us to be patient for the update, then the world would be much peaceful.

    But seem like Apple preferred it own way and does like to fix many bugs at 1 go. I know it's better than nothing, but with Apple size, it can do a lot better, and definitely need to improve a lot on their PR communication with users. So it will be a Win-Win solution on both sides.

    I managed to get the OTA update (58MB) when connected to my WiFi no problem. Always much faster to update OTA if you can because the iTunes method requires the full IPSW file rather than the delta.

    Done my update through WiFi. The download was fast about a minutes, its not too large size like youve mentioned 58MB only. It take more time to update the system and reboot though. Still at home haven't go through the trouble sites to try the update fix. Will report back again the outdoor test in a day or 2. Will have both WiFi and cellular data on all the time during the test, to see if auto switching fixed too.

    Updated through Wi-Fi took only about 10 minutes, the only thing that was strange is that it moved an entire page of icons to my home screen that I usually keep blank except for the home row of course, because of my background that I use. Then I had to manually move all the icons to another screen.

    That's not an issue with the update, it's just a feature of IOS. It does not actually support blank pages normally and if you create one it will reset your layout on a full reboot, as you found out!

    I see, thanks for clarifying that, I learned something new.
