    Hi, I'm a retired elementary science teacher. Miss the kids and co-workers, but not the work! Never thought I needed an ipad, but DH gave me one, and I do enjoy it--it's amazing and handy too! I like to show my grandson pictures on it--ants, butterflies, videos. He just takes the technology for granted: push buttons, pictures come!

    I'm having trouble checking my email--"out of the blue" as I've seen mentioned here before! It's an ipad 2. Would I ask about that on the ipad 2 forum, or elsewhere?

    Thanks for any help. I'm pleased to have found this forum.

    Without more info on what's actually happening its a little hard to be of help, but as it is out of the blue try closing the mail app completely and then relaunch it and see if this has made a difference. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Let us know how you go.

    Yes normally you would ask a question in the help section if you're having a problem. But hopefully this will solve it.

    I am an iPad user from the beginning. Love it. I rarely use anything but my iPad 1. I have it jailbroken and will probably put in a new OS when the next one comes out. Will have to wait to jailbreak it then. I am 66 years old and my son walks me through any big things like the jailbreak. I now have iPhone too. Love it also. I find I use the iPad less now that I have the iPhone. I had hard time trying to figure out how to post an introductory statement. Go figure!

    Wussup!!! i have been on my new iPad 3 for about 4 months now. Pictures and videos are very impressive. I am fairly new to the Apple World. I feel like I'm having new explorations in technology on daily basis.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    In Safari press the tab that looks like an open book, go to Bookmarks and you will see Reading List, just press it and it will list what you have added.

    Hi, I am the recent owner of the Ipad 2 white 16G..

    However, I am in no way new to apple products or IOS. In fact, I have owned every iphone except the 4S. I and from the caribbean so my experiences will be different.

    God Bless

    Hi,

    Fred (aka Francis, but only to my siblings) Mellon here. Just bought an Ipad 3 to use when living in France, although I'm actually based in Norwich, UK. Will be attending an Apple shop intro lesson for the Ipad next week (29th August) so I hope to pick up some useful tips.
