    Hello everyone. My name is Domo, I'm a 16 year old female, and relatively broke. I won an iPad 2 in a raffle for a test I'd taken through my school. It'd be nice if someone could give me the run down of what I can do on this thing. Not really sure what to use it for, but hopefully I can play video games on it? Well feel free to message me, happy to meet new people.

    I hope so. I heard it doesn't have flash? And that the Internet/data plans are really expensive. :/

    Have a look at this Sticky for information on Flash
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-faq/54703-flash-ipad.html

    So you have a 3G model? I'm in Australia and our plans start from $20 a month, I don't know where you are so use this as a guide. I only charge my sim when I go on holiday and use wifi mostly all the time.
