    Cause im sick if researching but it seems unless you have your ipad JB, you cant go back to ios4. Right now i cant even use my ipad cause safari (or any browser) keeps closing out of nowhere.

    and if i do a restore on the new one im guessing it will automatically update the ios firmware as well wont it? If so then looks like ill have to add all my apps, settings, bookmarks one by one from scratch. Thanks a lot Apple, appreciate it!

    Have you done a sync to iTunes 10.5, full back up and iOS5 reinstall?

    Its a desperation move but if you are within the Return Policy window and you arent happy then I would do it.

    Go for it.

    If you swap make sure you ask for the stock date. If it's recent, as in the last couple of weeks, it'll probably have iOS5 installed.

    Something went wrong with your ios5 install. Do what is needed to fix it or return it for an iPad with a working ios5. Few people are having issues with ios5 including a iPad1 user (me).

    in your app switcher, how many apps are there?

    do a hard reset.

    not because its not working for you, its garbage....calm yourself until it is working properly.

    if you are patient, we can help you get it working properly.

    first of all, you have an iPad 2, if you had an iPad 1 then i could see issues, but the iPad 2 can handle this.

    do you need the help?

    OMG!!!

    Well this has been a complete joke. So I take my ipad back to exchange it, fine, no problem, get the new one...get home and it has dust under the screen so i take it back...again! Swap for another one and guess what...the new one has 2 scratches on the screen seen but only noticable under bright light. So I take it back AAAAGAIN but to another future shop. Then open another one on the spot in the store, and that one has a dent on the screen! WTF!!!! The future shop guys werent gonna let me open another and said they cant afford to but i managed to get to open one more. In store it looked fine, take it home just now and notice 2 dust specs under the screen. :mad: These 2 dust specs are tiny compared to the 3 massive ones on the first one i exchanged.


    The future shop guys said im being too picky, am I? Maybe ill just live with this one as it has 4.3 on it
