    I have not been able to down load any apps. All of the buttons a grayed out. Have done a reboot a couple of times, no luck.

    Hi Shadow C.

    Does your wifi work well?
    Getting emails and web surfing OK?
    Go to the Apple store via the web site and see if you can buy that way.

    Maybe you need a trip to an Apple store.

    Finally figured out what the problem was, to put it nicely too heavy a touch, a light tap seems to do the trick.

    Hi Shadow C.

    That is good news.
    But tell me how does a light touch bring back the greyed out buttons?

    One thing to remember is that I am totally unfamiliar with how this is supposed to look, so I was mistaken. Ignorance is curable and I am working on it :)

    I have an ipad2 with iOS 6.1. When I attempt to download an app, occasionally the app will be grayed out. I've checked with our network administrator and he said he is not restricting certain app installations. Has anyone ever experienced this? Thanks.
