    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...

    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...

    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

    Wifi channel scanner

    Yes, there used to be several great apps for this in the app store. Over a year ago Apple decreed that for privacy concerns or something (? Don't remember but I think that was it since some of them returned A LOT of info about the networks) they were banned. The few that remain had to remove...

    Please help, lost pictures of my honeymoon

    Was that absolutely the only place they were stored, with no other copies in existence? If that is the case I would highly recommend getting a free Flickr or Picasa account and uploading to a private album. You can view these through many great apps and even cache on your device so they're there...

    Space bar

    Are you sure you are not typing in the URL field in the middle at the top instead of over on the right? There is no space bar as an option there; it is not a "smart" bar like in Chrome or Firefox. You can only type in valid URLs with no spaces in that area. In the upper right corner is where you...

    iPad email is lame - antiquated

    There is a paid jailbreak tweak called DeleteMail to handle this annoyance. I happily paid $1 for the glory of it adding an "archive all" and "delete all" option to the menu. It drives me nuts to have to go through and delete each one manually. If you subscribe to a lot of alerts or mailing...

    cannot sync photos to iPAd with new PC

    Also, as far as your downloaded music goes, have you authorized your new computer in iTunes? You need to do that before accessing music you've bought through iTunes. You do have it backed up somewhere, right? My best advice is to join Google Music and spend a few days to a week letting it...

    cannot sync photos to iPAd with new PC

    Hi, and...yes, this is why I hate iTunes with the heat of a thousand white-hot suns. You can only sync with one computer at a time unless you uncheck every single tab (apps, photos, etc) and your music will be wiped unless you check "manually manage music & videos." I believe your best bet is...

    Best ipad browser

    Yes, the BrowserChanger JB tweak rules! It also has an SBSettings toggle so that you can quickly turn it on and off. Any time Safari would normally kick open for anything, it's your preferred browser instead. I value this so much I'd put it probably around #6-7 best reason to JB. I tend to use...

    Saving pictures from email

    Hi Sandy, I'm not sure what might be causing this issue, but I would be a little bit wary. It is possible to corrupt the iPad's saved photos with the wrong kind of images (don't know the parameters for that, just that it can happen and did happen to me when I first got my iPad). It can cause...

    iTunes. Is it really so bad?

    Is there any way you could buy or borrow an external hard drive? I'm not really a computer person (just love mobile) but that way you could get a backup, even in stages if you have to work around crashes, and then import from that to the iMac? Just a thought. I've gone to storing almost anything...

    Beta Testers for iPad magazene website.

    Sure, I'll check it out. I have about 3 different favorite browsers depending on what I'm doing in the actual web on my iPad (sorry, I'm much more of an app girl) but the Google Music webapp has finally convinced me that they're not all useless.  Do you have to use Safari or would you like...

    Intro and app store prob-please HELP!!!!!

    Also, how are you trying to enter your info? If you're trying on the iPad, try doing it through iTunes on your Mac. Their system is messes up. If you have Chrome as default browser on a pc, for example, it will never complete the PayPal verification that kicks you out to the browser and back...

    If I were you, I would so two things immediately.

    iTunes. Is it really so bad?

    I'm so happy not to be the only one! Yes, the "my conception of hell" hits home for me too! I have a hand-me-down 8yo Thinkpad on XP and no Windows install CD, thus a fairly craptastic OS to begin with. Before enduring the UNVELIEVABLE NIGHTMARE OF UNINSTALLING AND REINSTALLING iTunes (oh, the...

    Jailbreaking really worth it?

    Since this an iPad forum, that particular question is less crucial than for me on my iPhone. But setting aside RetinaPad, the convenience of SBSettings for me is another top one. For overall performance management, especially things like the wifi, 3G, and Remove BG toggles (though the last is...

    Which iPad1 compatible iOS is till being signed besides 4.3.5?

    No idea about any of your questions, but someplace like the dev team blog might be a place to start. They often have a lively comments section. My head starts to hurt and I shut down when things get down to the level of actual coding. :) I'm super new here though so others will probably have...

    Connecting a second ipad to home computer

    Ah, I understand now upon re-reading. :) Yes, I've pretty much done the same thing in the past few months - disable automatic sync, check manually manage music, and uncheck sync for every single other option as well. I think that iTunes should actually default more this way than default to "hi I...

    Jailbreaking really worth it?

    Because I install so many things from Cydia, it inevitably leads to the slowing of my OS after a few months. I always only do a clean restore and set up as new, which I believe those cannot help with, correct? Or did I misunderstand how those work...

    Which iPad1 compatible iOS is till being signed besides 4.3.5?

    I don't keep up with JB news as much lately but my guess was what others have mentioned-it's not worth the time and using another exploit with iOS5 so near. On the bright side a tethered JB seems workable on the iPad because of the long battery life. And if you've got enough experience with...

    Jailbreaking really worth it?

    I think it really depends on how much and how you use your iPad. I honestly would not even want an iPad without RetinaPad, because I use so many non-universal iPhone apps. I also pay for a Grooveshark subscription, which at $3 a month kills Spotify or Rhapsody or Rdio or Mog, all of which I've...

    My Ipad 1 is stuck on DFU loop mode, can a new IOS update can do the job?

    My Ipad 1 is stuck on DFU loop mode, can a new IOS update can do the job?

    The 4.3.5 jailbreak is a tethered JB though, which depending on your uses and needs may or may not be worth it. I just spent an entire day troubleshooting after mine crashed into a boot loop & FixRecovery didn't work leaving me no choice but to go from 4.2.1 to 4.3.5. Finally resolved the dozens...

    Storage Space Consumed by Apps

    Hi, I'm really new here so I'm not sure if any of you are jailbroken or not. That's the only easy way I know to investigate this. There is a Cydia app called AppInfo that's free & amazing-it calculates the actual size of your apps. You can do this individually or export a list. You'll probably...
