    Hey TP, that's me you are talking about! When I first bought it, the first time it was offered, but I'm wiser now! :D

    Well, I was mostly talking about myself, but it's nice to know I'm in good company. :)

    THANK you, I must say I would love to be compared to be even remotely as esteemed as you, but I appreciate you humbling yourself , coming down to keep me company for a bit! I still can't figure out how to find out how to find my code on restrictions and that has been going on ever since I DID update to IOS6 on the very first day. Considering I haven't solved that problem yet I don't think I will be upgrading anytime soon!
    :)

    Well, there are only 10000 (10 x 10 x 10 x 10) possible combinations. If you try 100 a day you could solve it 3 months max. ;)

    Or you could just give up and do a clean install. It's a bit of work putting all the apps and stuff back, but might be worth the trouble in the long run. It's by far the cleanest, most likely to succeed method of upgrading. But I'd wait at least until the 7.1 version. If you're going to that much trouble it might as well be for a mature and stable iOS.

    Sounds bad! :-(
    Did you ever backup your iPad, using iTunes (computer)?

    Do you mean by syncing it?

    When you sync, your computer doesn't always create a backup. You'll have to take a look when your last backup was made.

    It would be a good idea to back it up. In case you need to restore your iPad, you'd lose settings, ... and maybe important data, without a backup. iTunes will ask for your password, if you set that one up after syncing the last time. You could also backup through iCloud, if you have an account.
