    Ipad reset question.

    I have an iPad 1 that I want to give to a friend. If I do a reset--erase all content and settings--will the iPad lose the IOS updates that I have done or will it stay at version 5.0.1? Thanks

    App store problems

    Anyone else having problems getting the app store to work this morning? Been trying for a good while now and keep being asked for password and then credit card info over and over. Wonder if maybe they are down and getting ready for release of Lion OS. Everything worked fine last night. Thanks.

    Apple has Massive Plans for MobileMe Revamp

    They need to do something with MobileMe. I think it is the most expensive and boring service I have ever used. I will not pay for it again.

    verizon vs ATT

    I recently got a Verizon Droid 2 with the 3G Hotspot and will discontinue AT&T at the end of this month. AT&T service for my iPad is routinely poor in this rural area while the Verizon 3G is always 4 bars. The 3G Hotspot on the Droid is not perfect however as it does seem to cut itself off...

    ZooGue Case Review

    This may have been asked before but will this case fit in the Griffin A-frame stand? I use the Griffin on my desk but really think the Zoogue is a nice looking case. Think it might make a better permanent home for my iPad. Using the Apple iPad case now which fits the Griffin but is overall...

    Portrait or Landscape?

    Landscape almost exclusively with button on left. I do not handle mine very much as I got one of the Griffin stands and leave it on there.

    Time keeps changing

    Yep, same thing here. Sunday it was off by about 7 to 8 minutes. Right now it is off by about 3 minutes.

    Few bars.. :(

    I have finally accepted the fact that my AT&T tower is not very near and just installed my Wi-Ex base station very near my desk and the primary place where I use my iPad. I get a consistent 4-5 bars and at least as good as dial-up speed using just cellular. It is good enough to allow me...

    Few bars.. :(

    I purchased the YX 510 as well and have been pretty disappointed. It only works if I place the indoor unit near my desk where I keep my iPad most of the time. There is absolutely no increase in signal in other parts of the house (it claims a radius of 2500 square feet). I do get 5 bars much...

    Signal boosters

    Hey Ron. Thanks for the recommendation. Actually after researching the YX-510 last night I ordered it and from Amazon. It will be here this afternoon. I will let you know how well it works for me.

    Who's having buyers remorse?

    I would never give mine up. Thinking of buying one for a friend.

    Signal boosters

    Living in the woods I know I will probably never have real 3G signal quality but what about the signal boosters such as Wi-Ex z-boost? Anyone have experience with these gadgets. I am getting a solid 3 bars on my iPad but 5 would be a lot better. Any opinions?

    Cannot get cellular data account to complete

    Update. Thanks to the article that figmo10 made available I finally got my AT&T service started. Granted it is not very fast out here in the woods but it is there and now I feel like my iPad is finally complete. I did just what the article suggested...went to Walmart and got a Visa Debit Gift...

    Cannot get cellular data account to complete

    I might try the prepaid Visa or MC. I also have read that AT&T will not authorize if you are not in 3G area. As for the iPad...I love it. Using the WiFi here at home it is just an amazing little machine. I would like to be able to take it with AT&T and I will go at it again tomorrow.

    Cannot get cellular data account to complete

    I have tried since yesterday when my iPads arrived to register with AT&T using the sign up screen provided. I always get the same message asking me to validate my address. I have contacted AT&T and Apple Tech and was finally told by the Apple Tech to take it to the nearest AT&T store and maybe...

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    The FedEx guy around here NEVER gets here before around 4:30pm and sometimes (even if it is an overnight shipment) he will claim an exception and won't deliver until the next day. I would like to send him to that island with Tom Hanks.

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    As an act of non-violent protest I will no longer shave or bathe until I get my 3G 64GB. Mr. Jobs, please think of my friends and family and my community.

    Keeping iPads in Stock a Tough Task for Apple Stores

    I just wish Apple would announce when the 3G is shipping.

    Just discovered a very cheap iPad stand

    I like the simplicity but it doesn't look very sturdy. All I would need is one of my cats bumping into that. When is SLEEK going to open??

    iPad + Time Capsule

    Time Capsule Actually my signal strength problem is probably due to my 100+ year old house and all the thick walls. When I am in range I get excellent connection speeds, as good as connecting directly to the satellite modem.

    iPad + Time Capsule

    I agree. I have a Time Capsule and the WiFi works pretty well with both my Mac and laptop PC's. Distance is the main problem. Works well in the house but signal strength really drops off the further you get from the Time Capsule. I think it should work pretty well with my iPad when I finally...

    iTunes intrusion

    A few days ago I downloaded the updates to iTunes and Safari and just this morning started having a strange problem with iTunes. It started popping up every few minutes on my iMac. I would close the program and within a few minutes (less than 5) iTunes would be there again. I tried Force...

    No charges here yet. As of this morning there are no charges on my Amex. 64GB 3G. Not even for the accessories which it says will ship much earlier.

    Most online retailers will do a test charge but only charge the full price when they are ready to ship. My charges have not shown up either.
