    I'm sorry, but the house rules does not allow the wife to have a device that is more current then her husband. You'll have to give him the iPad2.

    Actually all I think you need to do is just reset the iPad and give it to your husband. You will have to get new apps, those apps on that device belong only to you.

    I don't know of any other way you could do it.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    To transfer 'ownership' of the iPad, one of our frequent posters, twerppoet, gave this advice...

    -------------------------------

    In iTunes, with your iPad connected, choose you iPad under devices.

    Right click on the iPad and do a Backup.

    Right click on the iPad and choose Transfer Purchases.

    Explore iTunes on the computer and make sure all your media and apps are there.

    That will do most of what you need. To be on the safe side, go through any of your apps that store or create documents and make sure you email, or otherwise save them to the computer. Be sure to include the Saved Pictures album in iPhotos.

    When you get your new iPad sync it to same account and computer. Right click on the device and choose Restore from Backup. I'm not completely sure of the right sequence in the restore procedure, so you might want to grab the iPad User's Guide. But as long as you did the first part with the old iPad you should bje able to fumble you're way to a complete recovery of all your stuff.

    Before you send back your iPad, be sure to Restore it from the main device screen. This will remove all your personal data and set it to the same state you received it in.
    ------------------------------
    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
