    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).

    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

    I suppose so but you shouldn't have to put up with it! This is an expensive piece of equipment and I'm sure SJ wouldn't put up with it. Let's hope you are happy now.

    I think maybe you should just forget the ipad and get a different device?

    Am I being too picky with my ipad 2 or would you be the same?

    So I exchanged my ipad 2 this morning and ran into this completely unessecary circus. I thought the quality control of the ipad has been fixed since its launch?

    - first ipad, has 3 big dust particles under the screen so i swap it out
    - second ipad has 2 scratches on the screen and scratches under the screen in the corner so i swap it out....again!
    - third ipad has a dent in the glass screen, could even feel it when i run my nail over it so i swap it out .....AGAIN!
    - fourth one (which i have now) has 2 small dust specs under the screen near the left side. I havent even checked for dead pixels yet or backlight bleed or flashlighting or stuck pixels or uneven backlight cause its charging at home right now.

    Im very dissapointed, having to make not 1, not 2 but 3 trips back to the store to swap it out. And my current one still has 2 dust specs under the screen, though theyre minor compared to the first ipad i had.


    The store clerks were saying im way too over picky and even OCD about this and that i should just live with it. Im like really? Sure im embarassing myself by swapping out so many times but i dont care. Would you settle for a $600 device with a dent in the screen? Ya thats right didnt think so, so dont say i should just live with it. Do you think i am too picky?

    You are not picky, I would've done the same thing. My own is $1000+.
    Just so you know though, although you bought elsewhere, you can also go to an apple store for any help.

    If you have 4.3.3, that is jailbreakable.

    poser what the hell has happened to apples quality control? seriously, 5 ipads now and all literally had either scratches, dents, dead pixels or what not. My new one i just did a full dead pixel test on it and it has a bright blue stuck or dead pixel. Plus the 2 small dust particles on the left side. But really im not gonna bother going back again, this is just ridiculous all the running around i had to do this morning. I shouldnt have to inspect the thing when i buy it.

    With that being said im going to call apple tech support tommorow and mention this to them and ask what they can do to compensate me. How about sending me a free ipad 2 for all this hocus pocus running around?

    aren't the units manufactured in cleanrooms, where dust is almost nil?

    apple should hire you for quality control, you have an eye for physical defects.

    your next issue would probably be backlight bleeding. brace up for it...

    I have one comment I really donot understand your issue I have more than 400 iPad 2 with clients all whom are over the moon with the quality control and how good the iPad is. Apart from 2 and I mean 2 iPads that I replaced because of a faulty home switch non have any of the issues you complain about. If I recall you have gone through this replacement issue with every type of tab you purchased so my suggestion is go buy a Acer tab...... or Asus or Toshiba. They are perfect NOT .... Whoops did I say that.

    I suggest you give up and get a pen and pencil and a tablet to write on. .
