    I have paired a keyboard but I cannot get the Trackpad to pair with my IPad 2. I am new to this.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the search feature (in the toolbar at the top of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    Please take a moment to view the information linked below my signature to get the most out of your iPad as well as our forum.

    With respect to your question, Apple's Magic Trackpad does not work with the iPad...the iPad does not have a cursor. You could consider the entire surface of the iPad a giant trackpad of sorts though.

    Welcome again and enjoy!

    Ummm, Rich, the trackpad will work with the iPad...sort of. Won't do the swipes, but can function, only you have to be jailbroke and have the BTStack Mouse DL'd from Cydia. Have used it several times. The Apple wireless mouse works perfect.

    Judgement call response. A WAG that the OP doesn't have a JB iPad. ;)

    I thought I read about a mouse you can get for these, is that only if you hacked it?

    If by hacked you mean jail breaking the device, the answer is yes.
