    I've been entering items in my calendar and found that when I put somethinig in for 1st April it keeps changing the end time by about 2 hours.
    Any one else spotted this problem.
    Any one got any solutions.
    Ipad2 running IOS5

    Example entry
    07:25 start
    08:50 end

    changes end to 10:50

    If I put the exact same entry for another date it works fine.

    Hi bob-

    Have you tried to do the following? Might be worth trying the first 2 steps first to see if that helps...

    1. Force iTunes to close?*
    2. Try to restart your iPad?*
    3. Try to do a soft reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app becomes funky:
    Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.*

    Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    Try all of that and apart form threatening it with sudden death and teacher it a lot of new words it is refusing to play ball.
    Any other day of the year is fine except 1st April.

    That's kind of the conclusion I've come to. Failing that the device has picked up a virus.

    Can't duplicate it.

    Are you using iCloud to sync your calendar? If so try turning it off in the iCloud settings (delete the events on the iPad) then turning it back on again. Wouldn't hurt to check iCloud.com first to make sure your online events are in good order.

    Unless you are jailbroken, your's be the first (that I've heard of) iPad user to get a virus. Even with jailbreaking it takes terrible luck and unsafe app shopping habits.
