    Does LTE *truly* use same amt of data as 3G on ipad3?

    Thanks for the replies, and the car analogies seem spot on. That's what I suspected. I suppose if I want to confirm this sometime near the end of the month I'll do some comparisons using one of the browsers, streaming video in a few different apps, etc. I mostly use my iPad on wifi but I love...

    Does LTE *truly* use same amt of data as 3G on ipad3?

    Hi, this may be a silly question, or it may just be due to how I'm using data, but I keep hearing that LTE and 3G use the same amount of data on the new iPad, it's just that users may be inclined to watch more videos, load more web pages, etc. because it's faster. So here's my main question...

    transferring files from computer to ipad

    This is actually an extremely complex question. You can't just transfer all files to your iPad. Also many file types are not compatible. In many cases you may need to purchase apps or sign up for services that will allow you to work with or edit those files. Honestly I think you are better off...

    Buy MC359LL "official" Apple power adapter - or knock off?

    Excellent, thanks! Something got corrupted or went wrong on my first iPhone (a 3G) and near the end the battery would only last for about two hours. It would get so hot I would literally strap it to a cold water bottle to keep it cool if I had to be on the phone for more than 20 minutes. When I...

    Dropbox is great! But...

    Press the home button and the lock/power button at the same time. You'll see the screen flash white and the screenshot will be saved to your Saved Photos/camera roll.  Sent from my iPhone using iPF

    Are you using the Dropbox website on your iPad, or trying to view/do this within the Dropbox iPad app? Sent from my iPhone using iPF

    Incorrect setup

    Hi, this should be an easy fix. Go to Settings-Mail and then click the tab that shows your mail account address (above where it has the on/off options for whether you want to also sync notes & calendars, at least for gmail accounts). That should open a menu with the first field being "Name."...

    Buy MC359LL "official" Apple power adapter - or knock off?

    I've been wondering about this sort of thing too. Specifically if it is at all harmful to charge the iPad with a 5v charger (like an official Apple iPhone charger, for example - I realize that 3rd party chargers can damage a device if poorly made, etc) or if it just means it charges more slowly...

    Please help, lost pictures of my honeymoon

    Oh, I just saw the post from @richsadams when I wrote my last one. Yes, brilliant! That could work, I hope it does! (Since I'm JB I never restore from a backup and sometimes forget about that option!) Good luck! Sent from my iPad using iPF

    Please help, lost pictures of my honeymoon

    If that backup is on your work computer, just make sure that no other iPads are synced to it until you can grab the file. You can google iPad file backup location or something to find it - the Apple support site also lists the exact folder where they're stored if you search for how to manually...

    Hi! I'm researching Ipads for use with Skype and QQ

    Please help, lost pictures of my honeymoon

    Wow, that really sucks. I feel for you. :( The photos are technically stored on the iPad, but it's just so easy to wipe them with a sync like you accidentally did. Since Picasa accepts full rez uploads, I'd definitely recommend checking it out bc it's free and so easy to batch upload and...

    transferring files from computer to ipad

    I'm also a little confused as to what and how you're trying to transfer. You can't just transfer floating files by mounting it like another drive. If you want to transfer photos you need to create an album on the pc, then select "sync photos" and check that album. Etc. Not all file formats will...

    transferring files from computer to ipad

    Seconded. Dropbox is awesome and so easy. Additionally there's another app I love called iFiles in the app store that is great for local caching of those files from the Dropbox app. It's possible to cache in Dropbox but iFiles has a lot more features and a better UI. So for example you'd set up...

    Wifi channel scanner

    Also, I've synced and tried a few times to use some of the copies that I had stored on my computer and never updated, preserving that functionality. iOS4 seems to have broken their capability to ever work now. Sent from my iPhone using iPF
