    Serial number is wrong

    hi newbie poster here, I had an iPad2 for 3 weeks & I dropped it
    Apple talked me through doing a back up & said when my new one arrived to restore from back up & all would be good. New iPad arrived today I plugged it in & did the restore from back up but its still registered under the old serial number, how do I get the serial number changed?

    Hi SewingFairy-Sorry to hear about your initial ipad, but so happy that your new one has come in! As Leelai, said-calling Apple will certainly help resolve your issue! Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get your 2nd ipad up and running!! Good luck!

    Thank goodness you did have your iPad. Unless its a one day game, cricket for me is as exciting as watching grass grow!
