    From the instruction at the forum page, every body is made to believe that you can ask any question on the ipad and answers will be give to solve your problem but i keep asking and there is no response to the question nor any assistance to that effect or is the forum not for all.

    Hi, I have read your posts and can only find one question to which you have not received a response. That is regarding an upgrade to your iPad. I am sorry but I do not understand the question! Is it that you want an iPad with more space or a new iPad? You also posted on the international forum and it could be that most of us do not check that one. I tend to check the general ones that apply to my devices. I have also posted a question and not received an answer. Most times people are very responsive and we all try to help each other. Sometimes it is a question that no one can answer. My unanswered one was regarding an app....probably no one had bought the app so could not help me! I did not take this as an offense. This forum is a great support and I have found so many hints, ideas, solutions, apps etc given by other members. Don't be discouraged and post again if you have questions.

    Your question about upgrading your iPad was posted today so many have not had a chance to read it yet. Just be patient.

    Could it be that not everybody is aware that this is not a help desk financed by Apple?
    Could it be that most of those who send helpfull answers do it in their free time, not being paid for it by anything else than a nice "thank you" if it was of help??

    Dear OP, please be patient - most of the ones who read the questions here try to reply best we can. The better formulated the question (as clear as possible) the easier for all to answer... (I did not read your questions as I just fly over the latest posts from time to time - having to work next to IPF and satisfy the needs of my big family as well...) stay put and be patient...

    Hmmmmm...I wonder how much time and money this forum saves Apple since people usually find many of their answers here as opposed to going to an Apple store or calling their tech support. I would be very interested to know. You are absolutely right though, most all on this forum and iPhoneforums.net have a passion for this stuff and it is actually rewarding to help people discover their devices and what they are capable of.

    You don't say where you are located, Abbas, so also remember that we all live across many different time zones around the world, so your post could take up to 24 hours before it has hit everyone's "daytime" and many potential responders may not look on here every day.

    if someone does help you, post a thanks and an explanation of how their advice did or did not help - not only do we all like to be thanked from time to time(we all have egos!) it also helps others with a similar problem who may search the forum at a later date.

    I've received some excellent help on here, some has worked and other hasn't and I have always posted [or at least tried to remember to post] post thanks together a note as to whether the advice worked or not - cue deluge of posts from people where I've forgotten to acknowledge advice! :p

    The fact is, some posts don't get any responses or correct fixes. This is a forum of iPad users who pool their knowledge, and no one is entitled to answers. You post a question and hope someone can help, and usually that happens. Posts that are clearly written and that include specifics tend to get answered. If no one is answering your posts, maybe there's a problem with how you're posting.

    Personally, I don't answer vague or poorly worded questions. If the poster can't be bothered to post understandably or usefully, I can't be bothered with his questions. This forum is for fun; it's not a job.

    If you're unhappy with the "service" here, you can always go to Apple instead.

    I would like to add the following. iPad forums does offer the best resource for information for any one whom owns an iPad or has an interest in purchasing one. In the past 2 years or more we have added many forums that address individual needs. With now more than 200,000 members our moderator team and admin are kept busy not only welcoming new members but also offering help and assistance where needed. We also have a group of dedicated highly experienced members lke kaykaykay whom visit here on a daily basis many whom live in different parts of the world in different time zones many whom offer their expert experiance in resolving issues. Both Leelai, one our highly experianced Super moderators and my self live in Brisbane Australia and are 18 hours ahead of west coast USA so we are often here when USA is sleeping. My point is when one posts a question in the forum it can take up to 12 hours or more for a response depending where you live in the world The most important request to any member is please post in correct forums and donot duplicate your posts and above all be patient...

    I hope this assists the OP and any new members whom have just come on board.....

    Enjoy our forums
