    Some rookie questions

    Hello, I am looking at buying an I pad but I want to learn a little more about something I am going to spend a lot of money on. I appreciate any information.
    Will my Iphone and Ipad sync togehter? If so how? Do I have to do anything to get them to sync? How does Itunes work on the Ipad? Now I buy music from my PC and then load them onto my Ipod. Can I do that from my Ipad? How do I buy books for the Ipad? As long as I have wifi can i send an recieve text messages? I will probably not buy the one that has the internet plan capability. I am sure I have many more questions, I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

    That's a lot of questions but here goes......

    - your iPhone and iPad will stay in sync through iCloud using the same Apple ID as you have already.
    - I'm not certain what you mean by how does iTunes work on the iPad?
    - you can buy music on your iPad, if your computer uses the same Apple ID the tracks will still be available for you to download there.
    - you can buy books through iBooks, Amazon (for the Kindle App), etc.
    - no idea about the text question.

    That's all I've got, hopefully others can chime in here.

    Sorry for the confusion, I am totally ignorant to most new technology but I am trying to learn. I guess with the I tunes I am asking if I do not have any other computer at home can I use I tunes from the I pad? Meaning I buy a song on I tunes, how do I get the song to my Ipod classic or my I pod shuffle? They are not wifi devices so how would I sync them? Does the I cloud do this? Or can I connect a cord from the I pad to the I pod and transfer the song that way? That brings me to when does my I pad sync everything if I only have the wifi I pad? Can I text message someone from the I pad if I only have the wifi model? Sorry for the long questions but I do really appreciate your input....Thank you.

    No, unfortunately your iPods would still require a computer.

    OK, thank you. I did not think there was anyway to connect a line between the two and since the I pods are not wifi capable than the cloud will not work either. Thanks.

    No problem, of course, if you got yourself an iPod Touch then you could use iCloud.
