    Hello fellow IPAD users. I am just an old geezer who needs some IPAD help!!! My newest Granddaughter is only 21 mos old and she is more efficient than her GrandPa in the use of the IPAD. LOL... I am looking for a little help with my IPAD and FB. I believe the problem is a FB problem but need someone to tell me for sure. Have had the IPAD for over a year and no problems. Now we are unable to log on to FB. Keep getting a message that Says "unable to connect to server"!!! Trouble is not my server. I have done everything except run over my IPAD with my truck trying to fix it. Is there a fix for this???

    Hi, freddielile! Welcome to iPF!

    I don't know what you've tried, so here a few suggestions:

    Delete the Facebook app and reinstall it.
    Access the FB account through a browser, take a look at your settings, ...
    Reset your iPad (one of the usual fixes for troubleshooting): press and hold Home and Power button until the Apple logo appears, release both and let your device power up on it's own.
    Reset - different kind of reset: go to Settings - General - Reset - Reset all Settings. You'll have to enter your settings again afterwards.
    Backup your iPad and restore it: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766

    If this doesn't help, don't bother to ask again. There are a lot of helpful members in iPF who will be happy to help solving your issue.
    Fixing the problem with your truck should be the very last solution. ;-)
