    Verizon won't sell an Ipad without a social security #

    I thought about asking for a manager, but after the way I was treated, I didn't care that much and wanted to let the powers of the "free market." do their stuff. Requiring my Social Security Number to make the sale wasn't the only rude intrusive way that I was treated. Before activating the...

    Verizon won't sell an Ipad without a social security #

    As an AT&T customer, not having any automatic service coverage if my data plan goes over the limit, is not an inconvenience. If I am running low, AT&T simply sends a message to my device, informing me of the situation and giving me the option to pay for additional monthly service, using a form...

    Verizon won't sell an Ipad without a social security #

    Thanks for the reply. One can buy a, AT&T 3G Capable Ipad at any Apple store, without any commitment to AT&T 3G service and without providing a social security number. The way that it works is that the Ipad's first only work with Wifi, but come with an AT&T Sim card. The owner has the option...

    ATT the worst-just ask their customers...

    I live and work in the middle of New York City. I pay for AT&T 3G service. There are times, when my Ipad has no signal at all. This is how bad the service is.

    Verizon won't sell an Ipad without a social security #

    To followup on some posts: I was not applying for any credit. I had my credit card out in full view of the clerk. After I agreed on the data plan and the device capacity and some accessories, the clerk first asked for my drivers license. I don't remember if I gave him permission to scan it...

    Verizon won't sell an Ipad without a social security #

    This was pretty freaky! I intended to purchase a Verizon wifi Ipad, with the associated mifi device. I made it clear that I was not committing to any service plan and understood that this would cost more. The clerk scanned my Drivers License and refused to sell me the ipad, unless I provided...

    iOS v4.2 Update Begins to Roll Out

    I got it all back. I copied 1 album that was previously in the Ipad Library. I saw my home screen appear on the ipad. I didn't see any "transferring songs" messages on my pc. Now, the ipad has all my music an podcast. It looks like the upgrade gave a premature message that it was complete...

    iOS v4.2 Update Begins to Roll Out

    The upgrade kept all of my apps, but decided to delete all my songs and video's! In my "Ipod," nothing is there. The bottom of the screen reads "syncing" and the middle of the screen reads "canceling sync." I've yet to work this out. In addition, the switch that could lock the...

    A few Jailbreak Questions

    I just upgraded to 4.2.1 and will Jailbreak as soon as I see some good success stories. I have a few questions: 1 - Can I assume a jailbroken Ipad will have some icon that will launch a shell, giving me root access? 2 - Does the OS come with a built in editor, like vi? 3 - Are the installed...

    Ipad's unable to connect to 128 bit WEP wifi networks

    The Ios's were all 3.22. Static Ip's did not work. I appreciate the comments about better security. I was asking if the WEP connection problems were known, or if there was a planned fix.

    Ipad's unable to connect to 128 bit WEP wifi networks

    I've also set up wpa2 and Ipads were able to connect. I've tried all available broadcast channels without any luck with 128 bit WEP.

    Ipad's unable to connect to 128 bit WEP wifi networks

    I have had this issue with my wifi, a family member's wifi, and a few of my clients. I had set up their wifi security with 128 bit WEP security. Laptops had no problems connecting and obtaining internet connectivity, after inputting one of the generated keys at the password prompt. The Ipads...

    "Continue search on server" not working for email

    This is probably a known issue. I wonder if anytbody from Apple reads this forum and fixes bugs from user complaints. I have close to 4,000 messages in my Gmail inbox and more in my corporate Exchange inbox. If I use the search function for text in a message, the search will pull up the...

    Why does my ipad ask me to for my itunes password all day?

    I asked this at the Apple store. The staff was unable to help me. My Ipad asks me for my itunes password all day long. Sometimes, It can be 5 minutes after I signed in. I've signed out of itunes and rebooted the device. This does not help. I've upgraded the ios since I the problem started...
