hi -- my dad has one of the original IPads, i.e., not an IPad2, it's begun freezing: he'll use the browser, find the page he wants, fiddle w/the magnification a few times, then it'll freeze, then throw him back to his desktop, browser shut down; this also happens when he's using the IPad to read an ebook, so it isn't just a Safari issue. He's tried "restarting." i've tried to walk him through restoring it to factory setting, because that's what i figure he'll have to do, but he, for some reason, DOESN'T WANT TO. i think, because he didn't set it up to begin w/(my sister in law got it for him and set it up, so he's assuming it's a lot more involved than it is, i think), so i told him i could post to a forum and see if anyone had any suggestions OTHER than restoring. does anyone have any experience w/this happening? it just started, out of the blue, doing this. he's had it about a year..... i appreciate any ideas!
