    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I'm a little confused with what's happening here, the iPad does not have a restriction icon, it is a setting that can be enabled through your Settings App. Have you applied a restriction? Could we have some more info here so that we can be of more assistance to you.

    Im sorry i used the word icon because i couldnt find any word for it, thank u now i know its part of the settings.

    I used iphone 4 and compared the settings in general in iPad 2, unfortunately there was no restriction setting in iPad 2. The reason i was looking for it is to disable the restriction.

    Also, when i tried to delete the apps by pressing the apps a long time i noticed it wont wiggle and no cross"x" appearing on the upper portion of the app to delete it. Thus, i couldnt delete the apps and arrange them into respective folders.

    That's where my problem stays unresolve.

    Could you please share a light of experience and information how to disable restriction if its not there, and how to delete and arrange apps when it seems locked.

    Thank you and really appreciate your time and help.

    You will need to do a fresh restore on your iPad, plug it into your PC with iTunes and restore which will take it back to factory conditions. Let us know how you go.
