    Just bought an iPad2, new to Apple. First thing told me to download and run iTunes on PC with iPad connected. Did so. Still looking at screen with usb arrow to iTunes. Tried "authorized" via AOL several times today with iTunes saying servers busy try later. Shouldn't I be able to something with this iPad with out going thru all this. Why do I have go to iTunes?

    With iTunes running on the computer (make sure you have the latest version from Apple's site), plug the iPad into a USB port using it's cable (be sure it has a good charge using it's power supply first). iTunes should automatically recognize the iPad and walk you through the initialization.

    If it does not, then describe what is, or is not happening and maybe we can help.

    Also, since you just bought the iPad, you have 90 days of free tech support from Apple, so don't be shy about calling them if you need person to person help.

    Simple things work

    Charged it up and everything worked as it should. Be nice if Apple mentioned "make sure fully charged are mornings going to work." Thanks again twerp poet.

    iPads usually arrive with a decent but not full charge on them, but I suppose mistakes or shelf time could change that.

    Glad you got it up and running. :)

    Yes, strange. I've unboxed and synched five iPads and all arrived charged.
