    Hi RedDwarf--Welcome to the Forum!

    Do the persons from your contact list have Facetime as well? Make sure that they have it to save you the trouble. Good luck and let us know what your status is. :eek:

    The contact app on my iPad won't even open at all is it because it's only the wifi iPad and not the 3G one

    Hi and welcome to the Forum

    Your contacts app should be opening regardless of whether you have wifi or 3G
    Try these steps, from the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press an app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now, if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When an App or your iPad begin to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!

    ...I am not sure I understand anymore than I did from what you are saying...

    ...that's what I thought also, Leelai. Thank you for confirming...!
