    I have an I-Pad version 1 with 3.2.2 on it. I want to upgrade to IOS 5.1. From what I read this must be done by not only connecting with a p.c., but it must be a p.c. that the I-Pad is used to and has connected with previously. If it is connected with a strange computer it might not back up content purchased from iTunes. I don't own a p.c. I live in Chicago. My brother purchased the iPad and set it up in Kansas City and mailed it to me. I've purchased much from iTunes I can't afford to lose. Am I totally out of luck or can I can I take it to a computer service facility or some such thing where they'll be able to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

    As long as you purchased content from iTunes and the App Store thought the same account, you won't lose anything since its all connected to iCloud.

    Make sure you save all of your important documents/pictures before you do the upgrade. An easy way to save docs/pics is by emailing it to yourself.

    Have a look at these threads to get you started:
