    I recently bought a second hand iPad 2.... The kid had already updated to 5.1 so I'm stuck with that for now.
    But I haven't synched it yet cuz I have a jailbroken iPhone that I synch with my laptop and have no idea how this
    May adversely effect my phone.

    Will the apps from my phone be loadable on my iPad?
    Anyone have any experience with this scenario?

    Many thanks in advance.

    It will not affect your jb iPhone in any way. I still run 433jb iphone
    Though I recommend that you disable most automatic syncing on both and control it manually.

    Thanks,
    That sounds like an iTunes setting that I can set the first time I synch the iPad?

    Will all my iPhone apps show up or do I pick n choose which ones to have synched over?
    Again thanks

    You choose. Though I just go to the app store on the iPad and redownload the purchased apps that I want. Sometimes there is a specific iPad version of the app that is separate from the iPhone version.

    Of course none of you jb apps will work on the stock iPad.

    For iTunes settings, in iTunes, go to Edit > Preferences > Devices. There's a box there titled something like "stop auto syncing iDevices." Check the box. This way, iTunes won't automatically start syncing with either your iPad or iPhone until or unless you choose. In addition, with this option checked, iTunes won't automatically open when you connect either device.
