    Hi there...is this an app that you are using for work? If so, it sounds like you may need to go into the settings of the app and reset your profile.

    Have a look at this thread from the apple community about the same problem: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2655678?start=0&tstart=0

    Added:

    Found the solution, it basically means that "a" provisioning file on your device has expired.

    Go to Settings -> General -> Profiles on your iPad.
    Any expired profiles should highlight in red, simply click and remove it.

    Does that message pop up when you are using a certain app? If so, have you tried to go into the app settings?

    Gosh this is an old thread....3 months old!

    I'd say bring it to the apple store since you haven't sorted it out yet.

    I live in nigeria! I don't think we have an apple store here. I can't delete an unwanted APP as well. When I hold it, it doesn't jiggle let alone show me the X. Sick and tired of the ipad and its my first time using one!

    Some apps, such as the native apps that come with the iPad will not jiggle and delete. Those are part of the iPad. Others that you have installed from the AppStore will allow you to delete if you long press it. Those should shake and allow you to delete.

    Also...have you tried to do the following:


    1. Force the app to close?
    2. Try to restart your iPad?
    3. Try to do a reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app becomes misbehaves...

    Force the app to close down*by pushing the home button twice or by doing a 4-finger swipe to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. Press the app, until it begins to shake. Close out the apps by pressing the red circle in each app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    The APPs I am trying to delete are the once I got from apple store myself. It would not budge! I tried the option of restarting and I lost all my pictures! Every time I switch off my iPad off and back on I loose all my pictures on camera roll. I closed down the app, went to the app to see if I can delete them still no luck. I hold the APP for a long time instead of jiggling it opens as soon as I remove my finger. Phew.
