    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

    I saw your problem with the video attachment. That circle with the triangle means that you don't have an app that can handle that format of file. You need something like OPlayer or a similar video app to be able to play that type of file format.

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

    No - once OPlayer is installed you should be able to press on the attachment in the email and you'll be offered the 'Open In' menu with OPlayer as a compatible app.

    I'm in NE Scotland - near Huntly - between Aberdeen and Inverness along the A96...rubbish weather...
