    Hello. Is there a way that I can reset my Ipad 2 without using a data cable?

    You can backup and restore your iPad through iCloud. If you do it through iTunes, the data cable is the same cable you use to charge the iPad. My post, which you quoted has a link which also covers using iCloud to restore your iPad.

    I've also moved your post to it's own thread as it was hijacking the thread you posted it in, which is not allowed under our rules.

    Hi Dave! Apologies as I'm new to the forum and using a mobile phone. I don't have a data cable (the one that came with the ipad 2 was defective) . I upgraded to os 8.3. I now turned on the locked ipad 2 and will try to find and delete the account. I still remember my passcode. Will update you later

    If you select the erase iPad option, the iPad will be erased as soon as it connects to the Internet and receives the erase command. Selecting remove from account will delete your iCloud account from the iPad and it can then be erased by using the Erase All Content And Settings option in Settings>General>Reset. Your iPad can then be set up from scratch, just as it was when brand new. You can set it up from a previous backup or as a new iPad. You'll need a working charging cable to connect to iTunes on the computer you've synced to in the past.

    What choice should I make to simply make my IPad open up, even when it returns to its factory settings? I'm planning to give this to my son very son and we don't have reliable net access at home.

    Could you take your iPad and computer and iPad to a location with a reliable internet connection? The photo shows your iPad in recovery mode. You'll need an Internet connection to restore it as the restore involves installing the latest iOS version on your iPad, which needs online verification from Apple to properly install.

    Once restored, the iPad will be as it was when new and can be set up by your son with his own Apple ID and password.

    I do have a relatively strong Internet connection right now. If I just want to make this IPad 2 boot into the home screen right now, should I Erase IPad or Remove from Account? Thanks for your patience :)

    I tried the Play Sound button and my IPad didn't play a sound. It means it's not connected to our wifi. Yikes. I better read the iCloud Help page also...
