    Do you have enough storage space? You need 2.3 Gb free otherwise the update will not proceed.

    You also need to be connected to a wi-fi network.

    Hang on. Thinking this one through. Good for space. Good for charge and plugged in anyway.

    Why not plug it into iTunes and do the update that way? Even OTA, you will download the whole OS, not just a patch. You ARE sure your wifi is up? Sometimes it will drop for no apparent reason.

    Tried to DL iOS 6 first day it became available and it froze due to load on servers
    Ten tried day after and wasn't plugged in and it stopped because I had less then 50 percent charge available for install

    Trying again today and tells me unable to install
    Yet it shows the iOS Description box above as iOS 6 installed and grayed out?

    If I already ave iOS 6 supposedly installed, it only shows iOS 5.1.1

    How can I access iOS 6?
    Is it possible first times last week when I tried to install it actually installed??

    Anyone have any ideas to reboot or something to get the iPad to show correct iOS?

    I think all you can do here is take the iPad to the Genius Bar and ask what to do now. If you don't have access to a computer, and the option is grayed out, it seems you are up a blind alley.

    Are you able to backup to iCloud? And do you have your data safely in another location?

    If so, it could be worth restoring to factory settings and starting again from scratch.

    What does restoring to factory settings do? In other words what does it erase?
    I have 100s of apps on here, dozens of videos I downloaded, and 100s of notes and files in Evernote and Dropbox on here.
    Also using life tops productivity software and 100s of tasks, events, to dos etc in place.
    Will I lose all of that info and files?
    How do I make sure they are all backed up to the iCloud?

    It erases everything. That's why you need to make sure you have all of your data in at least one more place.

    If you have that lot on there, restoring is not your best option. Have you got access to a computer you could use to do the update? Friends, or work, maybe? If it were mine, I would want a local backup somewhere.
