    Today I tried adding bookmarks and reading lists in Safari and I get a message saying "bookmarks are being synced. Please add bookmark when process has completed". I am new to iPad and don't have it synced to anything except my iTunes on my PC, and it has been weeks since I have had the iPad hooked up to my PC. Any ideas on how to fix this? I can't find any info online about this issue. Thanks in advance for any help.

    If it's similar to what I've encountered, if you're editing (adding or deleting) bookmarks and you get this message on iPad, you just wait about 10 seconds and try again.

    Did you recently update to iOS 5, and set up an iCloud account? That could explain the syncing. It should be faster after the initial sync.

    If you are using iCloud to sync your bookmarks, try going to Settings > iCloud and turning off Bookmarks for a bit, then turn them back on.

    That's all I can think of at the moment.

    So, when you go to Settings > iCloud you are not signed in?


    Try these common fixes and see if they help.



    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

    If that does not work try a restart,

    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. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
