I forgot my WiFi network password while trying to join my new ipad2. Tried multiple combinations of my usual passwords unsuccessfully. Now as soon as I attempt to input a password, the join button is unaddressable (greyed out). I presume I have been locked out after the failed attempts. I have reset network settings but am still unable to attempt to join. My original ipad is connected and running fine. Is this a router security issue or an ipad issue?

My ipad has been disabled and now I'm trying to get it to work again.  However, when I plug it into my computer it says that i need to type in the passcode, but i can't until it connects to itunes...also, my ipad has only been plugged into my friend's computer.  it has never been plugged into a computer since then.  Would this have anything to do with my problem?...|ipad-passcode-typed-times-disabled-plug-itunes-tells-recognize-device

He only one more try befor it locks up on him.  An even bigger problem is thathe is visiting family out of town so he doesnt have access to his computer.  Is there any way for him to retrieve or change the passcode with out losing all of his downloads and apps? We have spent a fortune on itunes cards, it would really stink for all that $ to just go down the drain! Please Help!!! ...|11yr-forgot-ipad-2-passcode-1-locks-bigger-problem-visiting

Just went to the Broadway in Times Square to see if they had the new 3rd generation ipad available for sale and they did (16, 32 and 64GB).  When asked what the price was they slyly took out a list from the back of a pillar that looked similar to the price list at other authorized resellers, bu...|authorized-resellers-allowed-mark-price-ipad

By trial and error I found that 11 characters were too many and 9 characters are OK.  I suppose the limit is probably 10 but why does the ipad just tell me that I have too many characters in stead of complaining about my User Account or Password being wrong and causing me to waste a few hours trying to chase down e-mail configuration options? I hope this posting will save others some pain....|maximum-number-characters-allowed-mail-account-password

I got locked out from my ipad mini during my initial setup.  Keep ask me for passcode but I haven't setup one.  Reboot and restart didn't solve the problem, tried connect to iTunes but it won't let me because it requires the passcode.  Tried my Exchanged password, Apple ID password and my iPhone passcode but none work.  Any idea to resolve this?...|locked-ipad-mini-setup-passcode-set-reboot-unsuccessful-itune-connect

I have a problem getting my ipad to start from shutdown. I get the Apple logo then when it is ready for me to slide my finger across the lower part of the screen to get the home page, it takes at least four attempts. When it does eventually open the home page, all works perfectly well. The screen is clean so I cannot see any reason for this annoying problem. Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Thank you.

My ipad got disabled after entering wrong passcode for 10 times. I haven't sync my ipad with iTunes so when I connect to iTunes, I get a message "iTunes could not connect to the ipad because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the ipad before it can be used with iTunes. Is there any way I can reset the ipad in this situation. I don't mind if I loss the settings. My ipad is month old and I haven't purchased any apps so it is fine for me to reset it to factory settings if there is a option to do it. ...|ipad-disabled-entering-wrong-passcode-10-times-sync-ipad-itunes
