    Hello,

    I just purchased a hifi/3g 64g ipad and not sure how to turn it on. How can I by pass the "CONNECT to iTune" screen? This is the 1st time I owned a Apple product and I'm lost

    btw, I'm not an ATT customer so i don't have a 3g account neither (not planning to have one)

    Thanks

    tq

    Greetings and welcome to the forum!

    The first thing you need to do is download a copy of the iPad User Guide from the Apple website --

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    [​IMG]

    This can (and should!) be saved on your computer and your iPad.

    The answers to many questions, especially since this is your first Apple mobile "iDevice", can be answered by spending some quality time with this handy document.

    how to by pass the Connect to iTune screen?

    Setting Up iPad
    Before you can use iPad, you must use iTunes to set it up. You can also register iPad
    and create an Apple ID (not available in some countries) if you don’t already have one.
    Set up iPad:
    1 Download and install the latest version of iTunes from iTunes - Download iTunes Now
    2 Connect iPad to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the cable that came with iPad.

    beside my new ipad, i don't have any other apple product so not sure how i can by pass this "CONNECT to iPAD" screen?

    Thanks

    That's the thing with Apple.
    Before you start you need to go to the iTune Jail and register.
    After some time when you become an expert you Break out of that jail.
    What they call JailBreak n:D:D

    thichquay, it is not possible to use an iPad just by itself. You have to have a real computer as well, either a mac or pc.

    You don't need another Apple product. iTunes runs on Windows as well as Mac.

    Apple - iTunes - Everything you need to be entertained

    Thats not entirely true. Conceivably you could go to an apple store and let them set up and do the upgrades. Then live without syncing and make all your purchase for apps and music on the ipad itself.... no computer.

    But yeah, to get the most of the device you kinda need a computer
