    Yep, mine is locking up with iTunes tv shows. Restarting the video resolves it but it happens ever 3 minutes or so. I have a bunch of downloads going so it could be that.

    I've had to restart mine about 4 times. Once watching abc app, another time watching a video on CNN. Another on the MMOD app. Each time I had to force power off and restart.

    Mine locked up whilst working with e-mail.

    Also, Wouldn't send mail. POP and smtp were correctly entered. Called tech support. Deleted account info and reentered. Now sending mail with no problems.

    I guess they should have used Flash after all.

    Video Lock-Up

    I've only tried to watch one Netflix video; locked up about 30 min. into it. I'll try another one, see what happens. Only had the iPad for a few days, so I'd imagine I can return it. But from the forums and posts, this seems to be a fairly common problem...
