    Hello Everyone,

    I'm new to this site, so wanted to say "Hello" n give you some insight to me.

    I've been looking for a site of fellow iPad users, who may be able to help me w/some issues, as I just semi-recently purchased an iPad 1, the latest version before the iPad 2 came out just a few months later (or I may be able to help others w/some issues :).

    I'm pretty tech savvy, but haven't had the time to learn all the "ins & outs" of the Apple iPad, as I usually do w/any new technical gadget I may purchase. So I do keep the full "User Manual" handy, yet as most know it doesn't cover everything in complete detail n prob most know iTunes knows little about the apps they sell.

    Well, I'll keep this short for now, but will tell ALL one of the incidents recently ran into w/the latest iOS update.

    I do have some technical questions r/t the OS, like if you can revert back to an earlier iOS version from the latest iOS 1.5.01 (as its been nothing but headaches). My iPad updated n I didn't expect it to, when just was restoring my iPad (and hit "Restore", not "Update & Restore") as one app wasn't working correctly AND it came back updated n restored in Japanese or Chinese language.
    So I had to play "take a chance" pressing different foreign words for hrs on end, trying to find where to set the 'type' to US English. I even tried "Resetting" my iPad and again came back in a foreign language
    and it didn't clear out all data from the company set area Icons, like all the games in the Game center were still there w/rewards won, but were not usable for any of the games. Also 4 games were left out/off of the restores n resets, but remained in Game Center..which I have no idea of how to delete or how to delete apps off of iTunes that are no longer or have never been used. **I wouldn't recommend this iOS update to ANYONE!!!

    Thanks for reading and HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!!!!
