    I found a thread from MickeyFromPace on June 9th in iPad2 forum that does a good job of answering this. I guess something new could have happened since then but I am staying put with 7.

    I have an iPad 2. I still have version 7. something on it and it works just fine for me. I started to update to 8 when it came out but I heard there were problems with iPad 2 users and 8 so I didn't. Then 8.1 came along and it was weird and seemed like it was gone all of a sudden so I didn't...

For instance it will let me see...

    How Can I Transfer Music from iPhone to iPad Without computer

    iOS 7 on iPad 2

    Keep Getting "No Sender" Emails - Please Advise

    I did a hard reset and it did not fix it....but I will try again. I only did it once though. I see you said it took you maybe 5X before it fixed the problem. I definitely did not think doing it over and over would be any better than just one reset so I only did it once. Will report back if...
