I just bought a new ipad 2, but cannot use it as it only shows the itunes logo and a cable. This means it's telling me to connect to itunes. I've done this and performed sync, still no way out. I have been told by friends to "unlock" it. Please how?

Have you already activated the iPad? That is what the screen is telling you to do - connect to the computer with the supplied cable and run iTunes while connected - and iTunes should guide you through the set up process. If you have already set up the iPad and you are still getting thos screen message - restore your iPad. You must be running iTunes 10.5 on your computer as well.
Restore iPad
If you can't restore this way, you will need recovery mode.

  • I bought a new ipad air but when i install the apps , all of them are gone , but i app store still are and says you can open it. But it can not open.

    I bought a new ipad air but when i install the apps , all of them are gone , but i app store still are and says you can open it. But it can not open.

    The apps available to you are dependent on your location. If you are not in the USA, then you cannot get the USA app store. Whilst you may think that is unfair, it has been a part of the stardard terms and conditions you agreed to when you setup the iOS device in question originally, as well as every time you click agree to the terms and conditions.
    This is done because of two things, firstly there are many legal and semi-legal reasons that an iOS app store download is available in one territory and not another, in addition to this, it also allows apple to provide language specific content, as well as team up with companies and organisations within individual organisations in order to provide you with exclusive offers, content, and information, which it would not otherwise be able to do.
    Rules for the iOS app store are also applied in varing forms for the music store, the books store, and the iTunes U content library.
    I can very much understand your fustraition, as someone who spent a considerable portion of his life, especially during the years he grew up, living in California, USA, but now living in London, UK, I too find it very fustraiting that you cannot always get the same content from one country to another, especially when most marketing for iOS apps originates in the USA these days.
    I hope this helps your query and helps to ease your fustraition. If you would like apple to be aware of your fustraition, rather than putting it onto a pubilc form which is on monitored in a very limited capacity, then you can fill in the form at http://www.apple.com/feedback where you can give your complaint straight to apple.

    Did you already activate iCloud on your iPad, Settings > iCloud.

  • I just bought a new iPad and I want to bring over all my apps from my first iPad but I don't have a computer, do I just use the cloud?

    I just bought a new iPad and I want to bring over all my apps from my first iPad but I don't have a computer, do I just set up an icloud account and upload all the things from my first iPad and then connect the new iPad to the icloud using the same account and sync it?

    No. You configure your new one to use the same Apple ID. Then re-download from iTunes:

    Greetings,
    I've never seen this issue, and I handle many iPads, of all versions. WiFi issues are generally local to the WiFi router - they are not all of the same quality, range, immunity to interference, etc. You have distance, building construction, and the biggie - interference.
    At home, I use Apple routers, and have no issues with any of my WiFi enabled devices, computers, mobile devices, etc - even the lowly PeeCees. I have locations where I have Juniper Networks, as well as Aruba, and a few Netgears - all of them work as they should.
    The cheaper routers, Linksys, D-Link, Seimens home units, and many other no name devices have caused issues of various kinds, and even connectivity.
    I have no idea what Starbucks uses, but I always have a good connection, and I go there nearly every morning and get some work done, as well as play.
    You could try changing channels, 2.4 to 5 Gigs, changing locations of the router. I have had to do all of these at one time or another over the many years that I have been a Network Engineer.
    Good Luck - Cheers,
    M.

    Read this:

    It is the same for the app store. You are required to have some sort of payment method in the record.

  • I just bought a new iPad air and have not been able to download kindle app to read my books. When I type kindle on my iPad app page, kindle app does not appear. What do I do to get this app into my iPad air?

    I just bought a new iPad air and have not been able to download kindle app to read my books. When I type kindle on my iPad app page, kindle app does not appear. What do I do to get this app into my iPad air?

    Hi norlowski,
    Do you already have the Kindle app downloaded to an iPhone or another iPad? Do you have "Automatic Downloads" turned on under Settings>iTunes & App Store for Apps on your iPad?
    You might want to try touching and holding the Kindle App option in your Purchased list, and when it highlights, let go, and it will go to a a detail page for the app with another "Open" option on it. See if it will open from there.
    If you do have Automatic Downloads turned on on the iPad, turn it off, and then go back to purchased to see if the Kindle is still showing as "Open".
    Post back with results!
    Cheers,

  • I just bought an new ipad mini with wifi and cellular. Is there any way to send text messages to people and contacts that do not have iphones such as friends with blackberrys or a samsung galaxy smartphone.

    I just bought an new ipad mini with wifi and cellular. Is there any way to send text messages to people and contacts that do not have iphones such as friends with blackberrys or a samsung galaxy smartphone from this ipad. Everytime I try to send a message to a person that does not have an Apple product ( Iphone or Ipad ) it comes up saying contact is not registered for iMessage and wont send it. I can only send them a message from my iPhone 4 instead. Do I have to install a new App from the App store to send these non iMessage cell users a message?

    I have also discovered that they have moved the audio books storage on the iPad from iBooks app (Audio Books Collection) where they have been stored up until now and are now to be found in the iTunes app under audiobooks, selection on the bottom row. So much hastle why can't they just say so right upfront on Apple iTunes Audio books?
