    Disappointed with netflix streaming selection

    I often have issues with streaming video from various different sources -- even when using my wi-fi connection rather than 3G. I either loose the video portion, and sometimes the audio gives out as well.

    Wireless Bluetooth headsets with the Ipad?

    My Sennheiser's sound great, and the wireless range is good, but stlll cannot use the microphone for Skype calls. Had I known that, I certainly would not have bought them.

    Wireless Bluetooth headsets with the Ipad?

    After much frustration of trying to sinc up my 2 LG Bluetooth headsets, I gave up and bought the Sennheiser MM400s. Very pricey, but I found a better deal on eBay than at the Apple Store. The sad thing is, there is no way to use the microphone part of the headset because the profiles or...

    Apple will Eventually Issue Patch for Wi-Fi Issues

    Was finally able to connect to my home network thanks to Apple's customer care. They talked me through a reset of the communication settings on my iPad and it worked!

    Hello from Northern California

    Gail, More bad news, I'm afraid. Due to AT&Ts restructuring of their data plans, the $30/mo. unlimited use plan may be subject to a cap. While it is true that most people will use less than the possible 5 GB/mo., it looks like they will be charging a hefty penalty for additional use...

    AT&T Unlimited?

    I was quite surprised to find out that "unlimited" really does mean unlimited. It has been particularly good for me, since my iPad will not connect to my home network. Apple customer support has yet to explain why many people are having this problem.

    Hello from Northern California

    Hi, Gail & Bremen, I think that many buyers feel like they have been stabbed in the back by both AT&T and Apple because of the change in the pricing for the so-called "unlimited" data plan. I have heard that many cell phone providers are going to cap the usage because of bandwidth demands...

    Disappointed with netflix streaming selection

    I have been able to purchase new DVDs with the digital copy option. You can then upload the movie to iTunes, then download to your iPad. It's an expensive way to buy movies, and takes about an hour or so to do the transfer, but it works.

    Hello from Northern California

    Hello back from Northern California! I'm Phil and I also bought the iPad 3G 64GB, which was delivered on May 7th. I had two problems with it right out of the box. First being that it would not connect to my home network. Others have had this problem as well, and I have heard that there is...

    Apple will Eventually Issue Patch for Wi-Fi Issues

    Have had wi-fi connectivity issue since day one. Went to Apple Store on second day and was able to connect to their hot spot. It also connects to every other hot spots that I have a password for, and one that doesn't require a password. Sounds like my home network is the problem, but I have...

    Problem sincing Bluetooth on 3G model

    When I first received my iPad 3G over one month ago, I attempted to sinc either one of my 2 Bluetooth headsets to it. The iPad would recognize one of them (they are both LG products), but not the other. The iPad would "see" the device, but would not sinc it. I went to my local Apple Store and...

    Yes, but how do you drive while sitting back there?

    New iPad car mount!

    I am using the factory case. I fold it back, and it hangs over the steering wheel and just sits there in front of me when I'm parked. Works fine!

    Notice of UK shipment received today.

    Just received an E-mail from Apple today, May 24th, stating that the iPad 64GB 3G I pre-ordered on May 10th has been shipped. Has anyone else in the UK who pre-ordered received a notice of shipment? Thanks!

    SIM card: Where is it located?

    I found it! Very hard to spot. Thanks to all who responded. :-)

    SIM card: Where is it located?

    I do have the 3G model, but cannot locate the slot or hole. I read somewhere else about a SIM card removal tool, but it was not included in the package.

    SIM card: Where is it located?

    I have been told that the iPad has an internal SIM card, but I cannot locate a slot anywhere on the unit. Does anyone know how to access it? Thanks.

    AT&T Unlimited?

    I doubt that he has received his first month's statement, nor have I. Will reserve judgment until I see mine.

    AT&T Unlimited?

    But he also indicated that he would have to wait until he got the bill.

    iPad 3G One Week Review

    Having pre-ordered my 3G iPad 64GB early last month, I was not disappointed when it arrived on April 30th via Fed-X and on-time. As they say in the UK, it's a beautiful piece of kit, and in my estimation, very well-engineered and very well-made. Connecting up to 3G was a snap. However, it...

    Problem sincing wi-fi & Bluetooth on 3G model

    My 3G unit arrived on Friday. I immediately tried to sinc it to my home network. It recognized it and asked for the password, after which it kept trying to sinc, but was unsuccessful. I also have two Bluetooth headsets that I tried to sinc to it. It recognized one of them, but failed to...

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    It looks like you are correct. According to Apple Support today (1-800-MY-APPLE), the US version of the Apple iPad 3G is locked to AT&T. Even if you can change the SIM card, it will not connect to other carriers (both USA & UK) unless jail-broken. They have already shipped my 3G iPad, so I am...

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    That's all well and good, but once we receive the iPad 3G, how will we know if it is locked or unlocked. I am sure it will work on AT&Ts 3G network, but the big question for me and others is, "Will the 3G unit purchased in the USA work with UK 3G network(s)?" Thanks to everyone who responded.

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    On the day it arrives, my first 3G iPad will be shipped to the UK. By the time it reaches it's destination, it will be too late to find out if the 3G will not work there. If it does not, I will have it shipped back to the USA. If the 3G does work in the UK, then I will immediately order one...

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    It should be a while before LTE rolls out. There will always be other upgrades and better things waiting to happen, so why not enjoy the 3G while it's here?

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    I am not going to be using it as a roaming device in the UK. It will be used strictly with a UK 3G service provider. But now that you mention it, if it does use a SIM card for USA AT&T, why can't it be removed and replaced with one from a UK wireless service provider? Thanks.

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    Thank you. That is very reassuring.

    Will iPad 3G purchased in USA work in UK?

    I have an Apple iPad 3G on order in the USA that I am planning to send to a friend in the UK. I assume that 3G service carriers in the UK and in other countries have little information, since the iPad is not yet for sale outside of the USA. However, does anyone anticipate any issues when...
