I assume that this very quick flash of a gray checkerboard screen is an AT&T issue and not the ipad? Maybe a millisecond stall in sending and receiving? Anyone know? I Mac G5, Intel 24" IMac, 3.0 gigahertz Mac OS X (10.5.6) own FC Studio...|quick-flash-gray-checkerboard-screen-normal-ipad

Hi,Ive just bought 2 iPads 3G, 64GB while on a trip to London, UK. I now came back to my country and one of the ipad just turned pink. Because of the bulk, I discarded the ipad packaging/boxes before I flew back, and wonder if I can return the defective ipad without its box?!Any thoughts on this is greatly welcomed!(To be honest, I would expect a working product when it cost 700 GBP, and has an Apple logo...)Cheers,Z0A2010 ipad 3G 64GB...|5-day-ipad-screen-turns-pink-38

Why does my ipad 2  turn on when I open it but none of the features work then it shuts off after about 5 seconds.  It shows the box "Not enough storage" but the close nor the Settings will do anything.  The sliding arrow blinks but I can't slide it to open.  The clock is always on time.  It's like it's frozen to that.  Please someone help!...|ipad-2-turns-works-turns-5-seconds.
