Hi All

Got my new white ipad2 64gb 3g verizon today waited like 3 hours met some nice people was a good time.

I have a few newbie questions though:

1- Is there a way to switch the user agent on the browser to make it show in desktop mode? I want to go to through safari to gmail and lookup my contacts or do i just setup my email account on the ipad to get it to show that way?

2- Show I allow "PUSH" notification from aps?

3- How do I close apps when done using them

4- How do i back up within an app to a previous page or area of that app

5- Is there a way to lock apps by password protection to keep my kids out of my email etc etc

6- Also was signing up the wife for people mag and downloaded some issues but there didnt seem a way to do it in the background is that possible? I left the app to go surf the web and I came back to the app in a bit and it paused the dl of the issue until i started it again.

7- This is a crazy one:
Anyone else come across this yet? Verizon is billed on a prepay basis and will not give you a bill? They just charge your credit card and will not give you an invoice. CRAZY! i need a bill to submit to my company who pays the 3g. Anyone know how to get verizon to send a bill?

thanks for the help!!!!!!!
