    Hello - I also own the Apple BT KB and have had no problems w/ the directional keys; did the Best Buy folks have an Apple KB to try on your iPad? Also, did you or them 'Reset' the iDevice? You could also go into the BT settings and 'Forget the device' and re-discover/pair? Just a few things I would have tried if employed @ the big box store - good luck and let us know if this helps? Dave :)

    What are you trying to use the directional keys for? They should only work in a text box situation navigating text in say a word processing app. They will not move around a pointer or around the home screen.

    Yes, excellent point to the OP, i.e. how are you wanting these directional keys to work? They are fine w/ my BT KB in email & other document type apps, but if you are expecting to migrate on the home screens, etc., then not an option - so, please provide some more information as to what purpose you want these keys to function? Dave :)

    A scroll key would be awesome. Guess I need the wireless mouse pad thing too.
