    I don't have wifi...wasn't aware I couldn't download some apps without it...if it over a certain size you can't use the 3G service....my YouTube app sucks.....I don't know...I feel like this thing should be AMAZING for the cost....

    Hi there and welcome.

    I'm not certain which part of the world that you are in but a trip to a coffee shop with free wifi would solve your downloading issues with large apps.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/

    No matter what you pay for an Internet device, your data connection is key. If you buy the fastest computer for thousands, but your Internet connection is slow, you're still up a creek.

    The restriction on downloading via 3G is set in conjunction with carriers, because they're trying to avoid overloading carriers' limited resources. I've read that you can jailbreak your way out of that limit from your iPad, but you'd probably still run up against your carrier's limits, depending on how much data you use and whether you exceed its cap and they throttle down your speed.

    If you're not happy with iPad's limits, you might buy another tablet instead, but you'll probably still have the limits on data if you lack wifi.

    20MB, not 2GB, is standard.
