    Mails visible on Mac, not on iPad

    Never seen this before. I have a couple of e-mails yesterday that I see on my Mac notebook but see neither on my iPad. Likewise I have a subscription to a weekly journal which also sends me updates twice a day. Part of these updates, basically comment or opinion pieces, come up on the Mac but...

    Vanishing I-pad notes

    Yes, thanks again. I've convinced myself (nearly lost another text!) that last piece of advice is right. Since you can go back to the previous to previous version and so on, it means that all these previous versions are retained in device memory. According to what we are now saying, that would...

    Vanishing I-pad notes

    Thank you. I have probably lost this last writing of mine, but might have saved it if I had known what you say now. Not sure what you mean by 'leave the note' but I left it as it was to come to this forum and other stuff. I then returned to it and it was as I had just left it. I could not...

    Vanishing I-pad notes

    I am just using the iPad (5) virtual keyboard. But you are saying after I selected all I might have accidentally hit a key and that would do it? Yes, it's quite possible I did that. I will have wiped everything away irrecoverably by it?

    Vanishing I-pad notes

    This has happened to me three times recently and is worse than just annoying. I use I-pad Notes quite a lot to draft things that might end up in online forums, letters or messages or other places. A note may contain results of considerable browsing and research, thought, checking, link copying...

    Synchronizing (Outlook) e-Mails iPad and Mac

    Strange - I'm sure I replied a few days ago. But now no trace of it. I said it was working. By synchronising I removed posts deleted from Mac also from IPad. But now this is not working. Sure,Seem to be several methods for removing posts, some of which work and some don't,Seem to be several...

    Synchronizing (Outlook) e-Mails iPad and Mac

    OK I wasn't trying it because I was afraid of consequences as explained. Anyway, not getting any answers I actioned this Synchronise option anyway. It worked, I deleted blocks of posts on the Mac and soon they were deleted on the iPad. Without connecting them up in any way. (In the course of...

    Synchronizing (Outlook) e-Mails iPad and Mac

    OK it was my fault in the first place for ignorance/indiscipline, for many years I never deleted an e-mail. I got up to about 25,000 mails, then thought I should do something about it. (In fact I was advised to not update my Mac OS till I did). I deleted about 10,000. I don't want to do it...

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    I did find the cause of the problem. It may be of interest to you or help for others. I did as you said and contacted Apple. I had not done this earlier because my warranty has run out although the iPad is not very old yet, maybe three or four years. In fact rooting around on the Apple site I...

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    It would probably need an appointment and take away a good half day but I may have to do that.

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    I have reset NW settings. It made no difference to my bad connection. To be sure I then reset again, still same. I still see no Wifi .))) sign. (Rather I do see it on the Settings-WiFi screen which even shows different strengths of different networks. but I do not see it on the Home screen etc...

    Yes I have tried that 3 times. Does nothing.(Once I saw the the wi-Fi .))) Symbol appear for about half a second.

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    Not yet. Sorry if this sounds stupid to people who know these things, but I am dead scared of of losing a recent manuscript which I have in iPad Notes which it was a lot of work to prepare. So I dread this is 'unsaved data' and will get deleted. Saving it the only way I can be sure would mean...

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    Don't seem to be able to edit to put this in last message. Why changing scares me is my experience is that they will ask me for password. I know the passwords of my Wi-Fi networks. Then they will ask me for other types of password that I don't know. This kind of thing has frozen me into another...

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    I think I went to that at some point in the past days. When I see 'this will return all your settings to factory defaults' it is the kind of thing that frightens me, I don't know what I may lose. Maybe I should just do it?

    iPad almost not connecting to wifi

    Hope right forum. Last days my iPad 5 connection to the net goes between slow-painful-impossible. Particularly noticeable when browsing, e.g. on forums like this. Often end up with 'could not be reached because your Device is not connected to the net' Some things which I believe require only...

    My iPad is the iPad What?

    I used to have an iPad-2,Well I still have it but I just got a new iPad. (And I find it nice, useful and fun.) As well as iPad-2 I at least knew about the iPad 1, 3 and 4, as well as the iPad mini, pro, Air, &c. In the store they just told me this is the current iPad of the type most...

    iPad 2 glued up

    Thank you. I will follow up and do those things next year – can’t do them now as apart from time I left the old iPad somewhere else didn’t bring it with me where I am now at the moment. I am very pleased with my new iPad so don’t regret buying, but if I cleaned out the old I one would I have...

    iPad 2 glued up

    Sorry did not reply to this earlier because your cure seemed to work then it didn’t then it did,... seemed to cure the worst, then it would start to get bad again. And I was doing this pressing two buttons thing quite often. What it seems to have meant was the imminent demise of the device...

    iPad 2 glued up

    For some weeks I have been noticing my ipad often quite 'sticky'. It would not always respond to stylus commands, and particularly Journal and other webpages would not scroll down, all would make me wait a minute or two before they decided to. Likewise sometimes with editing text, and a bit with...

    Memory and stability problems and puzzles

    OK no answer - does this mean I-pad 2 users are now only in a museum cellar? I would just like to know how it works that memory totally disappears and some time after reappears? Since my last post the other remaining glitches mentioned there also cured themselves magically. Without reloading...

    Memory and stability problems and puzzles

    My i-pad 2 was getting slower and slower. I saw that there was not much free memory. I deleted some apps that I had rarely or never used. Deleted photos or put on the dropbox thingy. What was left, though, seemed indispensable: I have 3.5 GB of music, and if I can't access it away from Wi-Fi...

    Stopped receiving e-mails

    Thank you. This problem I think has been the reason why I reply so late - I didn't see your post. I think it is sorted now, not sure, still seem to see a few anomalies but not quite so bad. I got some help from Mac. I think all we did was to diisinstall and reinstall the email from both...

    Stopped receiving e-mails

    The e-mails mentioned did catch up with me about 36h late and only just in time for what I needed. But the same thing has happened again. I see there are other threads about the same issue, e.g. Open Desktop receiving e-mails and not ipad But I didn't find a solution. It does look like there...

    Stopped receiving e-mails

    PS And then, something intermittent I noticed before and now it has come back - sometimes I can see no e-mails later than a date last November!

    Stopped receiving e-mails

    On my I-pad I have and can get no e-mails later than about some time yesterday (Sunday) morning. Yet on my new MacBook I have them up till late Sunday. My int Ernest connection is working - otherwise you would not be seeing this. This is happening with two adsl/routers whatever you call them t...

    Do you, should I, always update apps?

    Thank you, i would probably not have worked that out for myself. Now i have updated it to 8.3 and didn't note what I had before, I remember getting to 8.1something. So take home message would be when update comes along, wait, watch but not too long.
  28. evennewerbie

    Do you, should I, always update apps?

    Thank you. I have i-pad 2. Since 8.3 is soon to be overtaken I shall do as you say and wait a bit.

    Do you, should I, always update apps?

    The place where it warns you about apps needing updating used to awe me - it was like having unanswered letters and felt like a standing reproof, I couldn't bear to see more than two or three there. Now I am more relaxed and thirty there dont bug me. But then I'll have a blitz on them and update...

    Notepad question

    Thank you. I can confirm that it didnt work; it is several hours since I lost this note anyway. :( Thinking was on an ordinary computer files you delete, one is told, aren't really deleted, and can be recovered somehow unless they are specially washed.

    Notepad question

    On notepad which came with my i-pad it is very easy to delete a note inadvertently. Once deleted is there any way to get it back? At least during the same session.

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Coming back to the P1102 I thought I had solved it, but I haven't. I did print some stuff from my i-pad today I think, but can't now. I can print from my computer but the iPad no longer finds the printer. Via the computer I connect the HP. Printer blue light comes on. Then as long as on the I...

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Thx I didn't realise HP would have more than one relevant site, I'll try. Sorry for turning an iPad forum into an HP forum :oops:, one thing leads to another. :D

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Thank you for those two messages. The HP 2540 is in my other place and it will be some weeks before I can try it again. I can't remember all I did, but so far as I can: This printer, fairly new, comes with a disk. I don't know whether this contains something necessary for best operation, or...

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Do I understand right it would then be private and at present isn't? Then yes. In my other house where I didn't have a computer, for all printing (with a new cheap HP2540 I had to switch wifi network for every print and then back for any other use of the iPad. Is there a way to unite them to...

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Found it, more or less. I thought it had to be something relatively trivial because of the way it quarter-worked - permanent newbies like me can stay stuck for a long time on things like this. I anyone had said "check your networks" I would not have known what they meant or what to do. But...

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    The modem is called NETGEAR 108 Mbps SupernWireless ADSL Modem Router DG834GT Printer is HP Laserjet P1102w It was working wirelessly from my I-pad and also from my computer before I went away from home base for a couple of months and I don't think anyone touched it. Now it is not working from...

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Thanks I wonder if there is an easy way to do this based on the fact it now half works. I found on the wi fi screen I had to enable "ask to join networks". And I think clicking "auto join" and "renew lease" did something. Then if I hit on the right order of doing things things it finds the...

    Printing from iPad 2 - problems

    Ok. I need to be able to print though,retry basic standard necessity. Ipad instructions I have seen talk as if it happens automatically (as it used to). When I click on "device" it tells me my HP is not connected to the internet, do I want to proceed anyway? I say yes. I just want it connected...

    iPad forum app not working

    OK thx, that solves that mystery. I already have tapatalk which I had used for another forum and found it pointles - that and this forum I find a lot less readable and navigable via Tapatalk, but maybe it is useful for storing passwords of infrequently visited forums, or maybe useful for other...
