    Okay, I hooked my computer up to my iPad, and went through all the steps to upgrade to iOS 5, however, when I disconnected, the iPad still has 4.3. I tried turning it off and back on. What did I miss? How many steps are there and how many times does the thing have to sync up before it's finished. I've already spent almost an hour on this.

    Thanks,
    Karen

    Hi Karen, when hooked up to your computer and you have selected the option to upgrade it should be a simple operation of just watching the progress bar at the top of the iTunes window......could it be that you just selected the download new software option rather than download and install?

    Anyway, this thread may assist you further http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-help/49411-ios-5-5-0-1-upgrade-troubleshooting.html

    Thanks Gabriel, I'll use the link you sent and see what I did wrong. I thought it installed also, but something didn't work. I guess I can just try it again.

    It won't hurt to try again, I guess that at the very least the latest iOS is now on your computer so you won't have to download again.
