    Any suggestions? Will they do it in the store for free?

    Yes, you should be able to take your iPad back to the Apple store and they'll upgrade it to iOS 5 for you. The best thing to do is for you to make an appointment with the Genius bar first ... will save you waiting time.

    Hi, I went to the Apple store for the same reason. My G4 Tower can't download iTunes 10.5, so I went to get help. It seems they can't because the computers are 'locked'. I would like iOS 5, and it seems like this is a situation that happens more than once. Should I go back so the Genius Bar can download the OS on my iPad for me? Thanks...
