    Hi all. I just got my first ipad today. I've played a bit with others and fell in love. I am a wanna-be tech geek, and I like to try lots of new stuff with my gadgets.

    I got an ipad wifi 32gb. I bought it off CL and the last user had a few movies, music, and some apps already installed.

    My first question is: If I sync with MY itunes account, will all those get erased? Or will they go into my account?

    My next endeavor...jailbreaking it...maybe.

    Thanks all!

    If you sync to your iTunes, the items currently on the iPad will be erased. It's Apple's way of keeping paid apps and media from being shared freely...

    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 from


    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/...User_Guide.pdf

    Also the iPad2 manual is available for pre-order at the Apple iBooks store - available March 11th. It’s free too.
