My name is Christine and I am a 70 year old silver surfer who is not too familiar with computers, but who is learning more day by day.
Earlier this year my son bought an iPad when visiting me and set it up on my computer. I watched him use it and decided recently to buy myself one as I regularly go away and would like to access emails and have access to a webcam without hawking round a laptop. But there's a problem. I guess that a lot of people come to places like this with problems?? I'm not sure if I should post this elsewhere but perhaps you can tell me as I don't use forums that much and am not too sure of the etiquette! I would ask my son, but he lives in mainland Europe and can't pop back home to help me out like he used to when he only lived 30 miles away!
The problem is this..............since I bought the iPad, I can't register it and it's driving me crazy. I keep hitting the reset button, but that does nothing. Because my son registered his iPad on my computer, it keeps asking for his password. He's told me that I need to name my iPad with a unique name and create a unique iTunes account, but I'm still having trouble.
I wonder if there is someone kind enough to give me full instructions or point me to a webpage that gives me full instructions as to how I can register my own iPad on my computer and get beyond putting in my son's password, which he tell me will 'sink' his iPad to my machine if I do.
Thank you in anticipation.
