    Connecting wifi issue

    i have my iPad 3 for over 2 years now and it used to connect to Southwest wifi every time I fly with no issue. I am an A-List Preferred so I get free wifi every trip. I notice lately I am having a very difficult time connecting to Southwest on board wifi but nowhere else. Not in hotels, not at...

    Strange icon next to the power display

    My wife noticed an icon she never seen before showed up this evening on her iPad. The icon looks like a lock with a circular arrow around it. Have anyone seen this icon before and where is it coming from? Should it be something she should be concerned with? I know it is not much to go by and I...

    iOS 7 - first impressions

    My upgrade was a breeze, all in all 10 minutes and I was on my way. My impression of the IOS 7 is neutral but not very keen on the look. I attribute that from looking at the IOS 5 and 6 for the last two years so this is a "culture shock" but I think it will eventually grow on me. I did have...

After the upgrade, only iMessage and even my phone number is checked as my primary number everything goes to the iCloud account which is on my iPad. My wife is deaf so it is the only way we communication when we are not at home. Apple...

    My Problems Since Upgrading.

    The problem I see so far since the upgrade: - My mail box crashed twice. - I have 3,500 old mails in my Inbox. - The deleted mails keep coming back. - Many apps no longer work (that I believe developers have not caught up with IOS 7 yet). - Don't like the look of IOS 7.

    Sharing book

    I recently purchased a book from and downloaded to my iPad 3. My wife is also interested to read the book but she uses an iPad 2 and she has her iTune account. Is there a way I can share the book with her without letting her use my IPad 3? I would much prefer she has her own copy on...

    Fixed it myself. For whatever reason the device added all the contacts from Face Book without my input. To fix it, I opened Contacts, then Group. Uncheck All Facebook. What I really like to know is how the application checked that feature for me??

    Power consumption

    Nothing changed nor anything new. It was the same iPad 3 with the same applications except it used to last all day with one charge (I am a heavy user from surfing web to doing my work related activities) but since the IOS upgrade, my battery is drained by mid-day and have to recharge in order...

    Ipad as computer replacement?

    I find the iPad can do more than I ever imagine. I first thought it is a toy but lately it is my primary work horse. I love the fact I can take notes in meetings and pictures too. And they all neatly organized in the Evernote (that I primary use) without me doing a thing is just great. I have...

    Its official, some new iPads have problems

    I have no wifi, screen issue. But I notice my unit occasionally will shut itself off and I have to hit the power button and enter my Passcode. It does that usually when using the iPad in vertical position (with the Home button at 6 O'clock). At first I thought I accidentallyhit the Home button...

    I love the checker case. It looks elegant and unlike all the cookie cutter cases you see everywhere. And the price is the most reasonable. Love to win one for my naked iPad 3

    Need a Powerpoint Pro...

    I may be too late to help, but for future reference I use SlideSark for PP presentation. It works like a charm for me so far.

    Smart covers?

    I have a Smart cover and case protection combo by Griffin and I love it. The combo actually is for the 2 but it fits perfectly with my 3. For $50, I can't complaint.

    No wait!! I take it back. When put side by side, the display of 3 is much superior. And I mean MUCH. Funny I never compared the two till just now.

    iPad 2 VS iPad 3

    I bought the 3 because my wife has been wanting an iPad. I struck a deal with her taking my 2 and I buy a 3 with 64G. The 2 only has 16G and I justified it because I use my iPad for work. As far as the screen is concerned, I really cannot notice the difference. Nor is the speed. I probably...

    Laptop or iPad?

    I find myself using my iPad2 as a laptop more and more everyday. You just need to look for the apps that suits your needs. I may be the minority here but I actually like the touch screen keyboard on my iPad2. Then again, I am also one of those who use the touch pad on the laptop. I cannot recall...

    need some advice

    I store everything in the iCloud so 16G wifi is what I have and I don't plan on store video on my iPad. I have no issue with mine and I have it for 3 months now. Matter of fact, I love it more each day.

    will 16 gig be enough

    I too have a 16G but I store all my music and video in iCloud. When I am flying, I use my iPhone for music. I watch movies over Netflex so I only do that in the hotel room using wi-fi. I am not the type who likes to pull up personal pictures and view them in public.

    Ipad 2 going back

    I am sure iPad3 will be awesome but I really love my iPad2. There is only one thing I wish it can do............use Flash Player. Otherwise, I have absolutely no complain of its usability. It is indeed slowly replacing my laptop as I find more and more apps.

    iPad2 Calendar
