    Hey everybody....I have a new iPad 2....the YouTube app shows really grainy...the video quality is much better when viewing on YouTube site...however, now when I try to access site the videos won't play at all...I am running on 3G service with 3bars of signal....anybody else have issues with video quality on YouTube? Is there a fix for this?....

    Hello-

    I tried viewing YouTube videos using 3G and it was very slow and choppy. My iPad was constantly trying to search for a signal. I think that it really depends on your carrier and the coverage in your location when using 3G and watching videos.

    Have you tried to go somewhere like Starbucks and use their wifi connection vs your 3G connection to view and to compare quality?

    Oh for sure wifi connection is much better...and faster than 3G. You will love it and feel a bit impatient when having to switch back to 3G when needed. At least that was how I felt when I used my virgin mifi device when I went up north. It is not as fast as my home network, that is for sure.
