    Hi! I ve had my iPad for a year now and love it but feel I probably could use it for much more then I am doing, so I m looking forward to finding out lots of things. I m not quite retired but use the iPad mainly for TV viewing emails and games. Using iCloud, word processing etc is still a mystery for me! ;) I
    I would appreciate it if some one could tell me how to remove my husbands name as the iPad was originally registered in his name. I m at a loss at how to do this any advice please? :)

    Hello and welcome aboard!

    Do you mean the name of the device that shows up when plugged into your computer / iTunes? If so, go into settings / general / about and the very top should be "name", tap to edit/change.

    Hi! My names Lynn by the way. My issue is that because the device was registered when first set up under my husbands name any mail I send will appear firstly to the receprient to be from my husband although signed by me.
    I followed your above advice and the name for the device was still as default "iPad".
    When I go into the mail settings the "my contact" details are my husbands name. I can not seem to find away of editing this.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hi, Lynn! If you have an iCloud account, I should be able to help you.
    Go to Settings - Mails/Contacts/Calendar.
    Tap the account where you want to change the information.

    Something likes this is what you get to see then.
    Tap the Account, and this will occur:

    Here you tap again, Mail, and you'll get here:

    This is where you can change to your own name.
    I hope this helps. It's in German, but the pictures should lead you the way.
