    Im 70 miles from my sister that bought a ipad and has no idea what she bought much less how to start it up so she calls me and asks me if I will walk her through it.
    Im not the most computer literate soul you will meet and neither is she I have no idea what this girl bought Im assuming a ipad4 because she said the sales lady said it was the latest.
    Anyway she is asking me things that I have never seen over the phone no less, and she is stuck at Beige Rabbit that's as far as she got.
    Can someone please tell me how to reset the ipad and provide startup directions, I would sure appreciate it.
    thanks...............jstout

    Well, you've sure got me confused! I have never heard of "Beige Rabbit." Is that a game?

    Regardless, you can restart or reset the iPad; you won't lose any data. To do:

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    Or...

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes, she has me confused too, I guess I will make the drive and see what she is doing, thanks for the info.
    I thought thats how it would reset, because thats the way I do my ipad2, anyway when she resets it does take her back to the options of Beige rabbit/ beige rabbit guest/ or other ?
    I asssume its in the sign on mode and she needs to enter a password in other ?
    thanks.........jstout

    She wouldn't by any chance mean the Apple logo, would she?

    If the iPad was bought new, I'd have her call Apple for free support for 90 days. Better results from people who can stay on the phone with her and know how iPads work, rather than have you blindly steering her.

    If she goes back to the store, they will set it up for her. She can watch and learn. Might need to make an appointment online, however
