    I'll probably keep my iPad1 in the Version 4 realm and just simply buy the new iPad with the new version...

    I'm sick of this iPad going into sleep mode ever since I upgraded to iOS 5.1. Any advise?

    Now I question whether to upgrade or not. I have an iPad2 and the current version of ios works just fine, so why upgrade?

    I have been trying to download this update, at least 10 times over the last two days, but it never connects to the server! Very frustrating! Is it worth it?
