    Strange "X" Icon

    I consider myself fairly iPad savvy, but recently found an icon on a page that does not react to being touched and cannot be deleted. Does ANYONE know what this thing is and how I can get rid of it? TIA, Steve

    Travel sims in Italy and France

    This will NOT work. Each country's microsim/ipad data deal is specific to the country and cannot be used in another country. As soon as you hit the border "poof!" it is gone. However, your TIM microsim will work again when you return back to Italy for the last couple of days. For France, you...

    Travel sims in Italy and France

    I'm currently in Florence. While in Cinque Terre we bought a microsim from Tim (€15) and then a €9 for 1GB package. Time limit is one month. It turns out this will be insufficient for our 3 weeks in Italy. Also available was an €19 package for 5 GB/month. I was told to wait 2...

    Carrier Service in Germany

    No problem, Tim. I was hoping to help as many as possible as it can be daunting being in a foreign country and trying to do something as technical as this. Do as you please with the post. I will write others as I go to other countries.

    Carrier Service in Germany

    July 24th, 2011 I have been looking at this discussion for months trying to determine the best companies to go with as I travel with my unlocked Canadian iPad! I am currently in Germany and I thought I would share what I've learnt. As far as carriers in Germany are concerned, forget...

    Travel sims in Italy and France

    I am curious why you think you will have to restore between countries? I too am leaving for Europe this summer and I will buying sims as well (with no computer to restore). Unless a serious bug (heaven forbid) is introduced into your iPad I don't think this should be an issue. As the original...

    Copying ipad2 photo into blog

    Blogsy is your answer Mbangi makes a good point. Assuming you are talking about pictures that you have uploaded to your iPad via the camera connection kit, you have one neat and elegant solution. It is called Blogsy. They are releasing this week version 2.0 which will allow you to upload...

    Question about cellular operation on the iPad 2

    Wow! That is good to know. I would describe your issue on the Apple discusion boards to see what type of answer you get. If you do, please post back if you hear anything. At the very least, we can hope that this issue is resolved in a future iOS release.

    All of a sudden I can't delete apps!?

    All of a sudden I can't delete apps!?

    I'm hoping that someone can help. All of a sudden I am unable to delete ANY apps through the "wiggle" method. When I hold an app down I get the wiggle but no X in the corner. What gives?

    iPad 2 Battery Tip

    Hi KayKaykay, Apparently this is an issue that ONLY affects iPad2's. You DO NOT have to do this with your iPad 1. I was not getting anything like10 hours, but now I am...

    Question about cellular operation on the iPad 2

    Thanks for the thorough response twerppoet!:) Would turning on Airplane mode also keep the iPad from checking for a 3G network?

    iPad 2 Battery Tip

    I KNOW it makes no sense, BUT since I have actually turned Ping off I'm up to & surpassing 10 hours of battery life! The solution is not mine, I found it scouring the internet. Maybe it affects only some devices...it sure as hell helped mine. BTW, I always kill running apps and have limited...

    iPad 2 Battery Tip

    I'm not sure about that Aspasia. I NEVER enabled ping from iTunes or elsewhere and still had this issue. What is the advantage to keeping Airplane mode on? Thanks in advance.

    iPad 2 Battery Tip

    Since the first days after buying my iPad 2 I have wondered whether my battery performance compared to Apples advertized battery life of 10 hours. At first, I thought I was getting exactly that. Getting up in the morning I would check my e-mail, update apps, surf a bit or read my local...

    iPad 2 keeps loading up old emails to inbox?

    This is normal as all your emails are stored on your ISP server. Your new iPad picks up ALL the email stored there as this is it's first time checking mail from the server. When you delete email, you delete from your device but NOT the server. The device remembers what you have deleted and does...

    Do you have an iPad 2 car charger?

    Thanks for your reply and the link, but this would result in a 1 amp charge as opposed to a 2.1 amp charge. In other words it would take more than twice the time to get an equivalent charge. Doable, but not optimal.

    Do you have an iPad 2 car charger?

    I'm looking for advice regarding a car charger for the iPad 2. When looking on the Apple Store iPad Accessories page, NONE of the listed chargers are any better than 3 stars! Can anyone tell me of their personal experience with iPad 2 car chargers? I need one for an upcoming European trip...

    IPad 2 screen protector Zagg

    Why is everyone scared to do this? Installing shields is no big deal if you simply follow the directions carefully. Hell, watch a YouTube video or two.:confused: I installed a back cover in less than 10 minutes and it is flawless. My Ghost screen cover took a bit more time, for some reason...

    10 Must Have iPad Apps for Bloggers

    Really Top Ten? I don't think so! This post is old, and I think user experience has been less than satisfying... I'm hoping to use my future iPad to blog while on the road. Anyone have any experience with these? 1) Wordpress: Apparently useless on the iPad. 2) Blogger: Seems to be...
