Thanks for the suggestions. Went to the Apple Store Saturday and got it activated. Was warned about my cable company email address though. Told me that for some reason they don't play nice with iPad when receiving emails. I can send out but not receive. They suggested that I get a Google email address and use that one if I want to be able to receive emails. Don't know if I'm going to worry about that part very much for right now.
Like what I'm seeing for now on it for apps. Went to the app store checking around at the various free apps. Will I have to do anything special to download the free apps from the App Sotre? Will it automatically download itself or will I need a connection to something? Won't need a charge card will I?
Okay if I keep this thread open? There are so many suggestions that keep coming in and who knows what stupid question I'll be asking next. :D
Again, thanks for all of the suggestions.
