    If you take your iPad2 to an Apple store can they enable gestures for you?

    They will not do this. It is unsupported. You have to do it yourself. There are instructions in posts in this Forum. It's easy, but you need access to a Mac.

    haha i wish i could pay someone on the forum to do it for me--i'm afraid i'll delete an important file and mess something up. I'm not overly computer-savvy when it comes to stuff like that

    You cannot do anything wrong.

    On Mac, it is completely fail proof and on windows you only need to add two short lines to a .plist file. Worst case scenario would be that the gestures aren't activated.

    Either search for XCode3, or ibackupbot and you can have the gestures activated on the iPad within the next 10min.

    To remove the gestures, simply follow the same procedure, but delete the 2 lines, instead of adding them.

    I haven't tried it, but here are instructions for PC users:

    How To: Enable Multitouch Gestures in iOS 4.3.1 For Free | pinglio

    Here's a video showing how to do it as well:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uktPleZ8O8Q]YouTube - Enable iPad Multi-touch Gestures on Windows, no jailbreak request. (for iOS 4.3/4.31)[/ame]

    Looks a bit more complicated, but if you're the adventurous type!

    Hope that helps and let us know how it goes.

    I installed the multi-touch gestures from a PC with ibackupbot just fine, but found they were disabled after I did a double boot (because I heard it increased performance).
