    Been an iPad user for over eight months. First time here.

    Having issues with mail and applications (too slow) after upgrading to 4.3.3. Where does one get answers?

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad



    If you have a specific problem, then you can either post a question or use the Search button near the top of the Forum web page.

    If you want to post a problem, you’ll probably want to either append your question to an existing thread if your problem is related to the topic being discussed in that thread, or start a new discussion (thread). To do that, you need to navigate back to the ‘iPad Forum’ page (button near the top of the Forum web page), then choose a discussion area that you think most suits the problem you want to discuss - say ‘iPad DiY’, click to enter that area and then you’ll see a button ‘Start New Thread’. You can click on that and enter a title for your thread and the usual text box where you can type the details of your problem.

    It makes sense to use a thread title that’s as descriptive as possible. So I wouldn’t call a thread ‘I have a problem’ because no one scanning through the thread will know what the problem is or whether they can help and, since there are so many posts made each day, no one has time to read them all.

    So, instead, make the title of the thread as specific as possible - ‘iPad screen goes blank every 5 seconds’, for example would be better (though not as good as it could be, I have to admit) and then give as much detail of the problem as you can.

    But don’t be afraid to post - all the Forum members are really nice and the Moderators keep them under control and make sure they’re well behaved and polite - well, most of the time!!

    But just enjoy your iPad. Like any new product, they'll be 'issues' that will arise - first piece of advice, don't panic and don't do anything rash. I've read of people who have restored their iPads - generally a last resort - when the problem was far far simpler.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Please read the rules too!!

    Welcome to the forum
    Do you mean slow to open , slow to load or slow to get data? Wifi or 3g?
    They each have a different possible set of solutions one that will be for all is hold the power and home button at the same time for about 20 seconds, let it remain off for at least a minute, power it back up see if it is better.

    Slow to get data for mail. Slow to load for 2do. Wi fi + 3 G iPad. These issues only after installing 4.3.3. Will try what you suggest. Thanks

    Go into settings , general, reset, reset network settings .
    There have been times when an update can cause the wifi to really lag and slow down the Ipad.
    Try the power off I suggested in the post above first, then the one in this post .
    Neither will delete any data, just your network settings in the network settings reset so make sure you have your wifi router password to put back in.

    Thanks. Did both steps. Reset the wi fi settings too. Will wait to see if speed improves.

    Worst case. Do I go back to factory settings and work my way back to the present?

    There is an improvement though not as snappy as before. Will observe. Thanks.
