    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Well, well, well... This is a post from a dual-converted coffee/homecinema/computer buff. The very first computer I played with was a Mac (a model later re-launched as Macintosh Classic) all those years ago. I was hooked then but later converted to PC, but since a few weeks back I'm all into Macs again. Ever since I got my iPad2 in my hands. It's a 32 GB WiFi-model only, but seeing as there are numerous WiFi-spots around and the fact that my mobile has unlimited web traffic, this is no big issue with me.

    I truly just adore using the pad, and I find myself using the laptop more and more infrequent; only and mostly for the few things I can't do on the pad...

    Today, though, I tried the "Digital Copy" feature found on some BD-discs, and found it incredibly hard to get iTunes to accept the files. This, since I managed only to retrieve ".wmv" files from the discs. I gave up, made me a couple of nice cappuccinos, and mumbled (well, roared more like it) that it sucks. PCs, that is... Should've got meself an Airbook as well while I was at it...

    That said, I just love my pad and this here forum. Keep up the good work all! I'll do!

    I have a JB-ed iPad Air (16Gb/WiFi/7.0.4), and I'm not afraid to use it!

    MR. Gatsby

    I recently returned from a six week trip to the UK and Slovenia. Anticipating my travel, I purchased my iPad, iPad 1,which was on sale with the arrival of the iPad 2. Cost being a consideration, I bought the least expensive offered. This was a mistake because it quickly filled its memory with the many photos I took. Attempting to download the Albums and Events and create room for additional photos for the first time, I left out a vital step and deleted most of my Slovenia shots before completing the transfer. Unfortunately, there is no apparent way to rectify my mistake. Other than that, I very much like the iPad for its portability, a lot less bulky and less heavy than my Macbook Pro. I will probably graduate to the most recent iPad iteration once Mr. Jobs gets his head into the Cloud and his Cloud into the air.

    The iPad is not locked - you can use a microSIM from any service provider. You'll see several threads on this Forum about this topic. There is some slight controversy as to whether the AT&T iPad needs to be initialised on an AT&T network first of all, because the initial menus appear to be AT&T specific, but an increasing number of Members are telling us that they've had no problems with using their iPad, bought in the US, when they get home using a local SIM card.
