    Hi have bought an ipad 3 16gb today and trying to figure out all the basics. Have an ipod touch so some things look familiar but not sure of other things. Sorry if these questions are dumb but your answers could save me hours of stumbling around! I want to use my ipad for emailing, social networking, listening to music and watching the odd film mainly. I live in the UK. Questions i have are:
    Am travelling out to Turkey in a few weeks and dont have 3g - is it correct i can get a MIFI adaptor for a local sim card and if so any ideas which? Don't want to spend loads
    What app is best to download to open windows docs, edit them, open pdf's etc?
    How many devices can i link to an itunes account? I have my and my daughter's ipod touches on mine - can i add my ipad too?
    Any applications i shouldn't be without?
    I don't need an antivirus on the ipad do I?
    Please be willing to explain in simple terms as my IT knowledge is limited
    Thanks very much :eek:

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Yes you can get a mifi although I don't know which one would be suitable as I live in Australia
    There are many apps for windows docs but have a look here
    Yes you can add your iPad to the same iTunes account, you can have up to 10 devices connected to any one iTunes account.
    Apps are a personal choice with what it is you want to do but look at Dropbox, Evernote, Goodreader and Appshopper
    No there is no need for any virus protection on an iPad.
    I'm sure many others will chime in here with their suggestions. Enjoy!
