I've seen others have similar issues but this is driving me to despair. I know my pad is faulty even though only 3 months old. The microphone does not work and the wifi nearly never lasts for more than 10 seconds at a time. This has obviously got worse since I first started using it Having partly known my old ISP was rubbish I put it partly down to them. Now I have good stable broadband non stop and a pad with no ability to use the wifi. My only option is to send the pad back for repair or replacement I strongly feel that apple have sold my a defective PEICE if junk that looks pretty but barely functions. Seriously not happy and never buying another I device again. This is the 3rd device that the wifi has died on. The others being my pod and iPhone. It is about time apple addressed what is obviously a major flaw with their devices. They go for style and size rather than cooling and performance issues..
