    This is really dumb, but when I was setting up my Ipad, I clicked on "next" without changing the name of my Ipad, so the name of it is "Compaq Administrators Ipad". Can I change this to my name? Thanks!

    Yes - as the previous poster suggested, this cannot be done on the iPad itself but has to be done via a sync operation with iTunes. When the iPad is connected to your PC you can edit the name in iTunes and when you sync that name will be uploaded to the iPad.

    When connected to iTunes double click on the iPad name in the left hand pane, that will allow you to edit the name.
