    I told my friend in china to get an I pad 2 for me and I would come to see him several months later.
    Ok he did ( a genuine one for sure). He of course used it for the several months, he then dropped it of in hong kong and I picked it up

    Guess what everything is in Chinese :) :) and I don't have a clue on Chinese. I of course """ Fiddled"""around
    To try to do stuff "settings" but now I am in a worse quandary.
    Apart from taking it to an apple store for help ( I have the original receipt) from him
    How to get it back to english

    I might have to call him in china to find his Password and log on name to the I store

    Any suggestions appreciated so can give my I pad one to my kid so I can get Cthulhu with the I pad two

    Cheers

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Please read the rules too!!

    Hi Doug and welcome to the Forum!! I must say I had a little chuckle at your dilemma, :) but so glad Gabriel could steer you in the right direction and I'm sure that son of yours will be saying just that, but what a lucky kid he is. Enjoy!!
