    For some reason, the "download & install" button is greyed out in settings. What is going on?

    I got a pop up this morning asking if I wanted to upgrade to 5.1, I said yes and it upgraded immediately. Did you get the pop- up? If not maybe shutting down and restarting??

    Also try going to settings, then general, then software it may prompt you then to download 5.1.

    I suggest connect the iPad to power make sure you are on wifi connection and it should work. I also recommend doing a sync backup via wifi or direct to computer prior to upgrade. I upgraded 4 devices no problem hope that helps

    There is no software under General on my list. And where does one go to find the 5.1 to download?

    Do you have at least 1 gb free?

    Yes. I have 3.6gb free

    Just tried it whilst charging. Currently at 100%, it's still greyed out.
    I'll call Apple tomorrow.

    Just guessing.

    Try turning off any restrictions you may have set up under Settings > General > Restrictions. Perhaps one of those (like Installing Apps) is causing the issue.

    My iTunes is saying it can't contact the update server. Anyone else having this issue? I am assuming the servers are being hammered right now.
