    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    For the most part it should be plain sailing. For the rest, there's iPF.

    I read that. Great story. My mother-in-law is not quite so fossilised but she loves hers too.

    (I suspect she may read this, so I'd better shut up now.)

    Nice story. I feel less apprehensive after reading it.
    Just ordered one for my Dad for his 83rd birthday in December :)

    They really are just sooooo easy to use, if you have been (or are) a PC you just need (to quote Steve Jobs) to Think Different......file systems like Windows are a thing of the past.....none of it should trouble you but as Kevin says, any issues you do have, just head along here, there is always someone around to help, we have a great group of members here.....it's quite addictive!
