    hi newbie poster here, I had an iPad2 for 3 weeks & I dropped it :mad:
    Apple talked me through doing a back up & said when my new one arrived to restore from back up & all would be good. New iPad arrived today I plugged it in & did the restore from back up but its still registered under the old serial number, how do I get the serial number changed?

    Hi SewingFairy-Sorry to hear about your initial ipad, but so happy that your new one has come in! As Leelai, said-calling Apple will certainly help resolve your issue! Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get your 2nd ipad up and running!! Good luck!:)

    Thank goodness you did have your iPad. Unless its a one day game, cricket for me is as exciting as watching grass grow! :)
