    international use

    It will or should work when using Wi-Fi when you are in areas with Wi-Fi. Using it at other times may be problematic as GSM us the predominate cellular network in Europe and Verizon uses CDMA. Best bet is to contact Verizon and see what options are available for the areas you plan to visit.

    What's your favorite song?

    I remember the Moot the Hoople concert being canceled due to illness on the part of Ian Hunter.

    What's your favorite song?

    Mott the Hoople was excellent! A very underrated band. Had tickets to see them while in high school in Heidelberg, Germany in 1974 or 1975. Showed up at the venue only to find out the show had been canceled. Really bummed. Mott with Mick even better.

    Unlimited data?

    Maybe. Both are losing customers in large numbers. ABC News aired a segment about this a couple of weeks ago. People in large numbers dump their carriers when their contract ends because they want a better deal. Both companies would keep customers longer if the customer could get unlimited data...

    email ipad security question

    Was the iPad bought new? Sounds like her Yahoo account has been hacked and it sounds like a keystroke logger has been installed but I do not know if that is possible. Interesting. Hope you get it solved.

    What's your favorite song?

    "Madman Across the Water". Elton John. Mick Ronson guitar version. Alternate recording for album of same name but not included on the original release in 1971.

    Third iPad3 with assorted issues

    If you did not buy Apple Care at the same time you bought the iPad you have to buy it at an Apple store within 30 days of iPad purchase. They will want to check the unit out. This is how I understand it.

    iPad 3G as a in car GPS device

    Navigon MobileNavigator is hands-down the best navigation app, period. NAVTEQ maps. Far superior to the garbage that Magellan and TomTom use, which by-the-way, use the same map database. Pure junk.

    How long does it take apple to charge for purchasing apps?

    My iTunes account is tied to a MasterCard but I usually use iTunes gift cards and I get an email receipt within two days of buying the app, music or whatever from iTunes. I have Apple TV setup to use my wife's iTunes account which is also tied to a MasterCard. Charges usually show up with two...

    can a ipad with only WiFi upgrade to 3g

    Correct. If it is Wi-Fi only it cannot be upgraded to 3G at least natively.

    Switch Verizon to AT&T

    The Verizon iPad will not work on the AT&T network and vice versa. You will need to return the iPad and buy an AT&T model from AT&T or Best Buy, or from Apple, either in a store or online.

    Smart Cover and the New iPad

    I was on the phone today with an Apple rep about an entirely different matter and inquired about the current Smart Cover and it's compatibility with the new iPad. I have read somewhere recently, maybe in this forum, that there were issues with the current Smart Cover and it working with the new...

    Yes, do it yourself. Safer and easy enough to do.

    New iPad ordered!

    I used Bill Me Later to pay for mine so I do not think I can pick it up at a store. I do not mind the wait.

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    Exactly why I canceled the first order then placed a new order with AppleCare+ included. Too much hassle to go to an Apple store. Sixty-five mile round trip to the closest one to me.

    Canceled order. Re-ordered with AppleCare+.

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    I was able to cancel my iPad order as it was placed only yesterday. After receipt of confirmation e-mail, I re-ordered the iPad WITH AppleCare+ as I confirmed with the Apple rep that helped me cancel the original order that they needed to be purchased at the same time, ideally. So receipt of new...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    AppleCare+? Is this different than the AppleCare I purchased for my iPad 2? I bought for my wife's as well but have not activated it as I can find receipt to get the date of purchase of her iPad 2. So are there two versions of AppleCare? Will the unactivated one I have work with the "new" iPad...

    Question for 16g owners

    I currently have a 32GB wifi/3G model which is more than sufficient for my needs. I have read that apps update to support the retina display of the new iPad are much larger files. Will 32GB still be fine? I play a few game, read and use the Internet for the most part plus watch TV shows and...

    ipad3 black or white?

    All of my HD TVs are black, as are my Blu-Ray player and receiver. I got a black iPhone 4S and a black iPad 2 because I think they look sharper meaning nicer. When I order the new iPad, it too will be black.

    Buy Apple TV and an HDMI cable. Then use the Air Play feature. I use it all the time to watch movies, videos and TV shows on my TV from my iPad.

    First Photos Taken by New iPad Camera Appear

    Agree. Not great and not as good as iPhone 4S. Not sure why camera in the 4S could not have used in the new iPad.

    IPad2 trade in?

    The "new" iPad also has a quad-core processor a significant upgrade over the iPad 2 plus a full gig of RAM

    Question about magazines in Newstand

    I believe Alxipad is correct. If you download direct to the iPad, sync it to iTunes so that it will copy to your computer, then resync the iPad. The magazine will then physically (in digital form anyway) reside on your iPad.

    about the 4g plan..

    I dropped my data plan because I rarely used it let alone used anywhere near the 2GB of data per month I got for the $25 a month it cost. I think the money was fair for what I got, I just use my iPad 2 in Wi-Fi areas predominately so I decided to save the $25. Not sure what Verizon plans are but...

    Overall iPad 3 disappointing

    Screen resolution that is better than 1080p, quad-core processor and better cameras. Seem like significant upgrades to me. I am looking at replacing my less than one year old iPad 2 with a new one and passing the 2 to oldest daughter who is in college and finally realized the utility of having...

    The new ipad

    Not positive but I think the engraving is done at the factory. I ordered my iPad 2 engraved from Apple and it shipped from China to my home with no stops in between other than FedEx (or UPS) facilities.

    Smart Cover will. Cannot say about others.
