    You have an iCloud account; User ID and password?

    In Settings > iCloud; you've signed into your account and have Documents and Data turned on?

    You've updated the Pages app on both devices to the most recent version? The first time you open the app after this update it should ask you if you want to use iCloud.

    If not, then have you've gone into Settings > Pages on both devices and turned on Use iCloud.

    Note that it can take a while to sync to iCloud the first time, and I've noticed pauses when opening the apps latter that seem to be related to looking for iCloud.

    Also, turn on iCloud for the device that has the most or all your documents first. It probably won't make a difference, but it might. You may end up with duplicates when you sync two devices for the first time with the same documents. No biggy, you can delete the duplicates later.

    Yes Ido have iCloud ID N PASSWORD which was different from my MobileMe ID.

    Sign in using apple ID and Document and Data turned on. Then open Pages apps to check if it sync. Unfortunately nothing happened. Then went back to Setting and discover iCloud and Document n Data turn off again by itself . I could not save or lock the Setting.

    Results : still not working

    Just to make sure I understand, you used the iCloud ID to sign in, right?

    I'm not sure what else to try. If you have not done so try a restart and/ or reset.



    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    No improvement at all. Wonder if it is because I do not purchase the iWork for my Mac .

    Have pages installed ipad2. Downloaded word docs via Dropbox into pages but when I go into edit a document it freezes. The only way I can then come out is to press menu button. Need to be able to edit and understood pages could do this with existing doc files. New user to ipad. Any suggestions?
