    I bit the bullet and bought an ipad 2 yesterday (16g, verizon 3g, white). Will be giving my nook color to my mom :).

    A few questions:

    1) What exactly is airplane mode?

    2) How do i move app icons from page two of my home screen to page one?

    3) Does one need to sign up for their 3g coverage as soon as they get the ipad 2? Or can it be done whenever? I'm goin on vacation in a few weeks and would like to activate it then. No statute of limitations on activating it, right??

    1) Airplane mode turns off WiFi and 3G and is safe for you then to use while on a flight. Quite often the attendants ask for electronic equipment to be put into 'flight mode'

    2) On Page 2 press and hold any icon until they start to 'jiggle'. Then touch and drag the icon you want to move towards the very left hand edge of page 2 - the very edge - and hold there for a second. They will then switch onto page 1 and you'll be able to move them to wherever you want.

    3) No - you can sign up whenever you want..no statute of limitations on activations!!

    I should have added that, once you've moved an icon, to stop them jiggling, press the Home button...

    You can also rearrange your icons while the iPad is plugged into iTunes. When in iTunes with the iPad plugged in, click on the name of your iPad on the left. Then click on apps. You'll see all your screens and you can click and drag to move them around.
