    I was trying to set up from start - did not get any pictures as shown, just Hello, Halo, Bonjour etc, got as far as Create Apple ID
    It has my email and seems happy with that, but then it says "try another Apple ID as it is already being used" ??? I went to the site suggested on my desktop, and it was happy with my email address and my new passwords, I saved them. But nothing synced to the Ipad. (I have a 16gb mini /retina ipad). I was going to plug the ipad cord into the computer, and wasn't sure if that was ok - as the desktop is not apple. I plugged it into power, but I haven't and can't get past the message "try another Apple ID as it is already being used"

    Can anyone help please?

    Hi, joodyanne! Welcome to iPF!

    You don't need to plug your iPad into the computer to set it up.

    When you are at the point of entering your Apple ID, you have two choices, afaik: Sign in with your Apple ID or create new one. In your case, it should be "Sign in...". You already have an Apple ID, you don't need to create a new one. Then you should be able to continue setting it up.

    There's nothing wrong with using a PC with your device. You'll need to install iTunes there, though: http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/

    I didn't get very far :( - went into Safari to go into facebook - I was to type my address which is (partly) joody_a - but there is no _ on the keyboard at that point. It has been available everywhere else, but not now (I think it's been replaced by "undo") Question - how do I get into fb ?

    Ooops - should I have started a new thread?

    That key is here:

    Otherwise you'll find it when you select these keys:

    Here it is then:

    Hope that helps.

    If it looks like this:

    then Siri is enabled on your iPad. It doesn't make a difference. Tap the 123 key on one side, then the #+= key, and you'll find the one you need. I added a few screenshots to my post after answering it.

    Thanks J.A (especially for the pics.) I am understanding some things a bit better, and have noted the tutorial.

    Well J.A. I got into more trouble trying to get Cloud organised, -never mind, I reset the whole thing and have now run into more trouble.

    I entered English (from scratch) and my country - then let it search for my wifi - it has come up with the right one, but it appears to be locked, and I can't go further. It suggests if I have problems to go to ITunes, that too appears locked. How on earth can I get further, I can't reset it again as there is not option :

    If the iPad has found your Wi-Fi, then tap it and select "Join Network". You'll have to enter the password of your Wi-Fi connection as next step. Then you should be able to connect your iPad to the internet.

    If you can't access the internet, you also can't open iTunes or the App Store on your device.
