I am trying to pair my LG rumor 2 with my new ipad 2. The ipad sees the device and the phone can detect the ipad but each time they fail to connect. On the phone I go to trusted devices choose my ipad and press connect while at the same time telling the ipad to connect. First the ipad says failed to connect the cell takes a little longer but eventually says the same. Is this phone just to old to move pictures via bluetooth?

I want to buy the iPad2 through Verizon (my cell phone carrier). They offer 1G of monthly usage for $20 or 3G for $35. How can I figure out which plan to buy? My primary usage will be for reading newspapers. books and other documents that I can download at home using my Wi-fi connection. I will probably also use it for watching videos that I can download via Wi-fi.Suggestions ?thanks, Bob Dell Windows XP Pro...|cell-phone-data-plans-ipad

Hey Everyone-I am supporting a user who had his ipad replaced. He did not keep his original SIM. He is attempting to log in to his exisiting cellular data account on at&t on the new device with a new SIM and it is failing. Is the Cellular service tied to the SIM or IMEI? If he had kept the SIM, I assume hed still be able to log in to his cellular data account, but Im not sure. Any way to reassociate his data account with the new IMEI, SIM?ThanksJesse old iMac, ipad Mac OS X (10.6.3)...|replaced-ipad-sign-existing-cell-data-account

The service can supposedly only be accessed with a cd from msn. Is there another option? Could she use the old airport with modem built in?
