    I am waiting on my IPAD2 to arrive. I am curious about the possibility of
    hacking & virus attacks to my IPAD. Should I feel free to pay-bills online through the IPAD?

    iOS the operating system of the iPad is secure, as of now is there no virus and this situation is unlikely to change, because all apps are isolated from each other. Just keep in mind, that while iOS is secure, the internet connection used may not be. It is common sense, that public wifi's should not be used for online banking, otherwise is there nothing to worry about.

    That may be counter-productive, as jailbreaking does make the iPad more vulnerable.
