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

About a year ago, I bought a 1-month cell activation for my ipad while travelling.  i don't remember paying an activation fee. Today I tried to do it again for a trip and see there is a $30 activation fee for a one month service purchase: $14.99 for the month plus $30 activation fee.  Even the "How to set up..." instructions don't mention a fee.  What's up?  Is it new?...|activation-fee
