    Yes, I discovered over the weekend that the internal microphone had stopped working so today it went back from whence it came.....PCWorld!

    The mic was deffo working when I first got the IPad. Since then I have added a few apps and 'upgraded' from Ios 4.3.1 to 4.3.3. So...is it a op system glitch or shoddy components? Looking around on the net my money is on the OS, anyway I will be without my IPad 2 for seven to ten days according to the nice man in PCWorld.

    just ventin :)

    I too am sorry to hear that, but I do understand. I’m new to the forum and waiting for my pad to arrive. Ironically, I can’t seem to find via search any specific threads for 4.3.3 on this forum. Not a clue if your problem was hardware or software, but I'm not inclined to upgrade my pad from whatever it comes with. I remember all too well how Apple bricked iPhone 3G owners with 4.0 and the update just before it. It was that very incident combined with the horrible deployment of the iPhone-4 that nearly sent me packing towards windows after 27-years with Apple products. Today, I’m older a wiser and I’ve learned to keep my expectations low.

    Not to worry. Millions of users have upgraded to 4.3.3 and as you said, there are no specific threads about issues.

    I've been using 4.3.3 since it launched and find it more stable than the previous version. I havn't had a crash yet with any of my memory intensive apps.

    Thanks Tim, I did search for mic problems both here and the wider net, and while there are quite a few people with mic problems not one of them has been given any sort of solution, except to reboot the ipad.

    Obviously its a bit late for me now but if anyone on this forum has mic problems and you have any ideas for a workaround Tim, please do tell :D.

    I'm really missing my Ipad, and I'm having to use my laptop again...almost forgotten I had it!!

    I returned my iPad 2 after about 10 days. Could not get comfortable with iTunes. I also didn't want to have to use a PC to manage pictures and music. I also would like USB and SD ports. I was probably expecting too much from a tablet. It was a great device, just not for me. Will probably have to wait and see what iPad 3 is like. Will also look at the Toshiba Thrive next month.

    Many of your issues will be solved in a few months. With iCloud you will not need a PC or Mac or iTunes to manage pictures or music, it will all be wireless, automatic, and mostly free. The camera connection kit lets you use many USB devices from pro microphones, to card readers, to keyboards, etc. Some devices may require a powered USB hub to supply additional power.

    Unfortunately, iOS5 isn't the most stable right now :X

    In a fairly recent happening, reporters were allowed to film Steve Jobs in a candid discussion with his iTunes staff. He asked his people ‘Can anyone tell me what iTunes is suppose to do?’ someone replied with a text book answer and Steve replied… ‘Then why in the ‘f’ can’t it do that?’ Point being, iTunes is up for a complete makeover as its become so convoluted and disjointed that I too struggle with it.

    It's sad that you returned the pad for that reason, but its not for everyone and the design is still in its infancy.

    IOS 5 also hasn't been released to the general public yet, either. ;)
