    Hey Folks,
    I have an iPad 1 running iOS 5.1, since my recent up grade to the new iOS my iPad has been rather buggy. I've tried all the recommendations with the exception of one, restore.

    Is it worth my time to restore my iPad to factory then running a restore with one of my saved back ups?

    Thanks

    If you have tried everything else as you stated and you have backed up everything, go for it. Couldn't hurt. Are you JB?

    I use to be JB on 4.3.3 but decided to go with the new iOS. I'll give the restore option a try, thank you for the quick response

    Just finished the restore of my iPad. Went well, restored to factory settings first then restored my most recent backup. We'll see how she runs!

    On a stock iPad (not jailbroken) it shouldn't matter. Restoring wouldn't make much of a difference. A full reboot would do about the same thing.

    Yeah I hear you but had to try something. I've been debating just bitting the bullet and buy an iPad 2. I just got an email from amazon, $419 for an iPad 2 with free shipping. Not bad and tempting, but I need to sell mi iPad 1 first.

    iPad 2 is very nice compared to iPad 1 when it comes to just overall "smoothness" in everyday use.

    All sound advice folks and I'd agree, I still need to sell my original. I hear my Christmas want list has already reached its limit.
