    I liked the screen lock, the mute seems to be a waste of space, although Iphone users seem to disagree. I guess they are easily confused by the idea that a switch might be more useful having a different function on a different device, or maybe they are sedentary enough that it doesn't matter to them. Either way, since this was my only Apple product, I had no built-in bias for a mute switch, and was mobile enough with the Ipad, that it bothers me not having the screen lock on the side. So in the end, I will just consider this a lesson learned, and know that thanks to Apple, when I buy my next device there is now a nice selection of Ipad clones that aren't going to pull this sh*t when I upgrade the OS.

    What they should have done was let us set up the switch to do what we wanted that way everyone is happy!

    Good luck getting Apple to allow you a choice with any function of the iPad. LOL

    I want the button changed back - I want to be able to lock the screen in place. What's the point of a muting switch that doesn't work?

    How can I back up to the previous version of the software?

    Also, now there is no sound when I receive an email.

    This is not a "hissy fit" - I totally agree that Apple should have left this alone - I loved it. Now they have changed it to a button that literally is useless. The absence of Flash bothers me more though.

    Actually this bugs me more than flash. I bought the iPad knowing it doesn't do flash. I also bought the iPad with a rotation lock button. :mad:
