    hi new here but just bought new ipad 2 and when i tried yo set it up there was an apple id without npassword
    already there.
    this wurried me a little but then when i went to itunes to upgrade the os which has only been out a few weeks it was already updated.

    am i paranoid or have i been sold a used ipad 2 ?

    there are no scratches fingerprints or anything on it but i just get this sickening feeling that someone has already used it and seeing as i paid full price from currys uk i am really really annoyed so can someone please either settle my mind or give some advice ? eternally grateful if you can guys.

    Did they by chance set it up for you at Curry's before you left?

    no that is why i feek ripped off
    either someone from the store has had a play on it
    it has been returned as unused by a lying git or
    it has been refurbished and each of those scenarios is rather annoying to put it as nicely as i can
    would you take it back or just look at it as one of those things ?

    Well, first where did you purchase the iPad?

    Second, what is your return policy?

    If your are unhappy, then return the device if possible and look elsewhere? Really up to you - good luck - :)

    I can understand how you feel, you've saved and spent a great deal of money. I don't have an answer for what has happened, but certainly it looks as though it has been used before. Was it in all the new wrapping and such when you got it? I have wondered what happens with all the iPads that people have returned. I did think that they were then fixed, repackaged and sold as refurbished. At the least I would return to the store and ask for an explanation, also get in touch with Apple and ask them for an explanation. I'm sorry if this has taken the gloss of your iPad though.
