My son has tried to play music on his ipad 3 today but nothing will play, after checking settings he has found his restrictions have been turned on...... He hasn't turned them on and no one else has access to his ipad due to a password to unlock is set.....(even though he has blamed everyone else in the house!) lol What could've happened? He has tried the pin to turn it off but to no avail!

Restrictions has a lock code that is independent of the Passcode used to access the iPad.

If the lock code is unknown, the simplest way to regain control is to restore from a backup that was created before the restrictions were applied.

But how would it have been set if no one actually set it as they couldn't gain access to it?

I would assume that someone indeed set it and either forgot, didn't realize what he/she was doing, or is fibbing. :)

Potentially. Tell me where I was and I'll prove that I wasn't. I was down your way today. Hit the Apple Store in Southgate.

Hi bud,
So, you know we wouldn't tease you if we didn't love you? Right.
Love Apple at the Southgate Mall. It's very pleasant in there.
I've been meaning to go back there soon myself.

Just to look around, drool on the new MacBooks and new iPads too.

What did you buy now? Smile

He's a good kid, and he takes care of stuff.

Great thing about being a parent is you can buy the stuff you want to play with.

The next visit to Southgate should yield an MBP (for me). End of January, I hope.

I'm saving like crazy. It's not going to come easy, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
