    Thanks for the new forum for us "classic" iPad owners! I personally prefer the solid, balanced feel of the original, truly a classic design.

    I have an iPad 1 and 2, and I like each for different reasons. I still use both interchangeably, often at the same time as well (like I'll watch Netflix on one and surf on the other).

    I've found the iPad 1's SIM slot much smoother to open, because the iPad 2's curved design makes for a tighter fit, at least on my iPad 2. (I switch my SIM card between iPad 1 and 2, depending on which is more charged up if I take one on the go.)

    My iPad 1 also is going strong, despite my having dropped it on a corner on a tiled floor and having dinged it. And I've had it since iPad 1 3G's debut day, and have used it extensively. Meanwhile, my iPad 2 has already developed two dead pixels (the white kind).

    I don't find my iPad 1 limiting at all, because multi-gestures isn't a feature I use, even on iPad 2.

    Dumb question but how do I check to see if I have multi gestures. How do I use them if I do?

    Go onto settings - general and near the bottom there should be a multi gestures button click on and the instructions are right underneath. Don't forget to use all the fingers!

    Are you on IOS 5.0.1? Go into settings - general - software updates and check which one you have?

    I'm new to this forum with a 64k iPad wifi using a E5 Huawei with rechargeable SIMcard as hotspot when traveling. Home base is a small village in SW Germany. Don't really need a camera since I use my iPhone 4s for FaceTime and Skype. So much for now.

    Agree totally. I have original iPad and also have an Otterbox Defender case - which probably about doubles the weight. However the heft of the thing in hand or if I am extended viewing or reading the built in stand works a treat. Psychologoically as well as its overall robust and feels it I worry less about it being damaged :). The much thinner iPad2 and what may come next in a similar vein would probably leave me feeling less 'secure' albeit I am sure they are just as robust ;).

    I love my original iPad. I've got music, movies, e-books; Pocket Piano, a recording app and a couple of painting/drawing apps. I'm almost never without it. Even a few minutes of down-time waiting on line or something, there's always something to do. No matter what iPad 3 has to offer, I'll probably keep this iPad until it just stops working (and since I have a three-year-old iPod Touch that still works like new, I don't expect that to happen anytime soon).

    True! This iPad original isn't leaving our house anytime soon or at all! If I get a new one, this one will go to hubby or eldest daughter. She definitely has her eye on it for college work.

    Yea, bOOBie :

    I have a Cracked Comic book, with that same picture on it.

    Are you looking for one to buy?

    Just a thought, not trying to me funny or anything, for real.

    Thought somebody would like it and it is just sitting around here. I also have with it a Saturday Night Live book as well.:thumbs:

    Does anybody know if the Pad 1 has an issue that if the battery is not charging, then it will not restore as well?
    I keep ending up with the error 28 popping up and it will not complete the restore.

    It was dropped and after i put a new screen in it, all looked ok and no other damage, BUT the battery sign will not complete to full and stays in the bolt battery sign.

    It keeps showing the itunew/cord, but then it acts like it will go into restore, it beeps and so on, with little apple showing and then a circle of twisting/thinking and then a little rectangular 4 inch bar,w/nothing in it, then it goes back to the itunes and the computer says again, will not ,failed error code (28) and so BAM ! there is something odd going on.

    I thought do to the lack of the 25% percent battery power i hear is needed, the unit will not go any further.

    If this makes ANY sense to anybody that can help, Please let me know.

    I did want to know if anybody knows about the Battery problem, that might be the case of restore issue?

    Best to you all !
    Newbee looking for some help !

    The would not recognize to sync or restore on my pad drove me insane. I had a mac mini in the box and hadnt taken it out of the box for 4 months.. Got tired of the PC and hooked up the mac mini.. Has worked like a charm since.
    Power issues, might be the power cord. Had that happen before.

    Yes i am old skool..lol
    I am an original ipad user.

    Apps i like Azul.

    Microsoft exchange.. Works ok, not great but ok.

    I like my ipad ORIGINAL ...
    Wish the III was as thick as this one.. II , i didnt like it as much as it reminded me of an iphone 3...
