I keep getting a message saying 'you have not backed up your iPad for x number of weeks.' I thought it backed up when you plugged it in to charge.

Calendar App Alert - Choose "none" For The Alert, But Then The 10 Minute Alert Always Pops Back On
Whenever I create an event in my calendar, I choose "none" for the alert, but then the 10 minute alert always pops back on. I don't want an alert for some of my events, so why does the 10 minute alert keep coming back?

Mail - Email Alert Home Screen
I just got my ipad a few days ago. I have one problem so far. I thought that when an email was received, it would show it on top of the mail icon on the home screen just after it came. I don't find new email until I actually open mail. When I then exit mail it shows I have new mail on the home screen.

Macbook For A 4 Weeks Vacation?
i would like to have some advice from current ipad owners. i'm going on a 4 weeks vacation and i'm a in a dilema. Should i take the ipad or my macbook on the trip. Basically all i'll need my computer during my trip will be for web browsing, skype, email, facebook(Upload some pics) and save my pics on the ipad and also show off pictures from back home to family and friends there (i.e i have to upload some pictures on my ipad before leaving). I'm also planning to bring an external hard drive to save pictures taken while i'm on holidays just in case i can't upload all of them on the ipad because of its limited harddrive space.

Battery Still Showing 100% After 2 Weeks?
I charged my I-Pad battery for the first time 2 weeks ago. I used the A/C charger and once I saw that it was fully charged I disconnected the A/C source.

Now, I've been using my I-Pad for nearly 2 weeks now and it's still showing a battery charge of 100%.

I did disable the WIFI and Bluetooth options and turned down the brightness settings.

I've only been using it to synch songs from my I-Tunes and I do that through the USB port on my desktop. However, the I-Pad always says "Not Charging".

Does this seem right that my I-Pad is still showing a battery charge of 100% after about 2 weeks use?

ICal Bug Not Exist For Past Weeks?
1) In Week mode - Right arrow isn't functional. 2) In Week mode - In order to move to next week, the relevant section doesn't respond to touch. However, if the I click/touch the 3rd week, the page automatically flips to the 2nd week. For e.g. If the current view is July 11-17, and I need to flip to July 18-24, the app doesn't respond to a touch/click on July 18-24 section. However, if I touch/click July 25-31, the page automatically flips to week of July 18-24. The same problem doesn't exist for past weeks. It's always for the subsequent week.

Needs Rebooting Every Couple Of Weeks After Jailbroken
Perhaps it's because my iPhone is jailbroken, but I find myself rebooting every couple of weeks. My iPad on the other hand seems rock solid. I think I've rebooted once since buying it on launch day. I ran the iInfo app today and saw 38 days uptime. Pretty stable if you ask me - 38 days in and no performance flakiness whatsoever.

Transfer Everything From One To Another/ Backed Up
The simplest way to tranfer everything from one ipad, to another one.I am still unsure of what the ipad backup does backup and what it does not. I know it doesn't backup the music files on the ipad/ipod/iphone, but what about files within an app? Do these get backed up?

ITunes Connect And Restore 5 Times In 2 Weeks ?
In less than 2 weeks, I was obliged to execute more than 5 complete restore. Each time, upon iPad switch On (not form sleep mode), I was prompted to connect it to iTunes (just like the first day)... and then iTunes highlights that iPad cannot be read and must be restored. Please note, that it is not each time I turn it On that the problem occurs; but each time it occurs, it is during the boot and not at the middle of any particular usage of the iPad. Compared to what I could read in the forum, I did not encounter any particular crash when running applications.

Should I Purchase A 16Gb On Saturday Or Pre-order A 32 GB And Wait To Get It In Two Weeks?
I originally was on the fence, but after reading and seeing reviews and coverage the last 12 hours, I've been sold on the iPad. Checking out the apps that will come out really did it for me as well. Now, I had already reserved the 16gb wifi for Saturday at my local Apple Store..Question is, should I get it Saturday or should I just pre-order the 32gb and wait to get it in two weeks? I do plan on syncing some photos, but no music since I have my ipod for that and no movies really. Just apps. I would like to have extra space to have because I am going to be getting the camera kit for those times while on vacation and I need it, but they won't be on there long term.

Backed Up - Start Redownloading
When I first got my iPad in early July, I noticed a dead pixel on it. It wasn't that noticable to me, so I didn't do anything about it. However, the other night, I decided to do a dead pixel test on my iPad, and noticed a total of six dead pixels. Made a Genius appointment, backed up my iPad, etc and went to the meeting. He gave me a refurb iPad and restored my old one. However, when I backed up my old iPad, I guess it must have gone over my head that it would only back up contacts and the like, because when I went to go restore the new iPad, it didn't restore music, videos, pictures or apps. At the time, that was fine, I could just redownload everything.Wrong! When I went to go everything from the app store and the iTunes store, it prompted me to verify my account info (secruity key on the credit card I used). I entered it, and it said it was wrong. It's not wrong; I tried entering it for another 5 minutes. After that, I tried EVERY card I own, and nothing worked

Where Are Data Files Backed Up
I got my iPad2 in early April and until today I haven't consciously backed it up (by right-clicking it in the iTunes devices and selecting "backup"). Although I got messages stating that it was backing up, I really can't confirm it as I have no idea where those files were backed up to on my Mac.I went to my user Library and into Application Support > MobileSync > Backup and there was a folder with this name:


and it contained some 5,000 files, all of them with similarly cryptic names.I can only assume that these are the data files but I have no idea what any of them are.Am I correct in this assumption? How can I find a particular file among all these? Say, one of my epub books?

Keep Getting An Error Message That Says It Cannot Be Backed Up
I am a new ipad user so perhaps that may be the issue but I have tried to research the message I keep receiving when I try to back up my ipad to the icloud.

The message states " This ipad cannot be backed up because there is not enough icloud storage available."

It says at the bottom display 4.9 GB available of 5.0GB on icloud. When I go to Manage Storage and there is a list of all apps, etc listed I have turned almost all of them off and still I cannot back up to the icloud.

Info:iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi + Cellular (VZ), iOS 5.1.1

Media On IPad 2 Cannot Be Backed Up?
The warning reads, the media on this ipad cannot be backed up because there is not enough free space on this computer to hold all the backed up files (6.82 GB required, 32.5 MB available). The obvious answer is to cut down on the files that I'm trying to sync. How do I do that? Do I just delete some of the apps?

Check Its Backup Has Backed Up My Photographs
I've had to buy a new laptop and now want to sync my iPad with it.  I've followed some previous instructions on backing up with iTunes.  The next step is to sync it which will wipe the iPad and to restore from backup. I'm very nervous about doing this - how do I know that the backup backed up my photographs - it didn't seem to take that long. Foolishly I don't have the photographs stored anywhere else and I don't want to lose them.

Info:iPad, iOS 5.1

Lots Of Photos In My Photo App - Not Backed Up In ITunes ?
I have lots of photos in my photo app on my iPad and I back up newly purchased apps by going into iTunes. A friend of mine told me that the photos that i have on the iPad are not backed up in iTunes when I sync and backup. Is that true, that my photos are not backed up and only the apps are. If so how can I preserve and baç« up the photos into iTunes if I had to restore everything due to a new, stolen, or lost iPad? I really don't understand the process and can anyone seriously advise how to do it.

Backed Up Ipad Icloud Photos Won't Download
I had a syncing problem with my ipad 1 running ios 5.01 so I backed up about 500 mb of photos on my ipad camera roll on icloud before restoring to 5.1.1. I followed all the instructions about turning on icloud on the Apple site but for some reason the images are not being downloaded to my mac, pc, or ipad.

The total storage section in the icloud settings in ipad settings shows 600 mb is used. I turned on camera roll and photo stream on but no dice. I checked the directories where icloud is supposed to download but they are empty. Can I browse the contents of icloud using Aperture?

IPad2 Lost Contact List - Contact Information To Be Backed Up ?
I am, trying to figure out how I can set up a scheme for the contact information to be backed up on the fly, like a write through process where any new data is immediately stored somewhere else. From what I gathered, there used to be MobileMe then iDrive which no longer is in use and Apple is going to roll out iCloud some time in the future, so the users can backup (or maybe load programs) on the fly.

Meanwhile, I stumbled upon an apparent quick solution: syncing contact information to Gmail Contact. I set up an Exchange in Setting's Mail, Calender, Contact (I selected 'fetch'), and it seems to be doing its job, as long as I make sure the "Contacts" Groups of Exchange is selected in iPad.

I also noticed when I delete a contact on my iPad, it is removed from Gmail's My Contacts and placed under "Other Contacts" if it has not been labeled under any other custom group (in Gmail). So all the contacts deleted, removed from the iPad will persist in Gmail's contact groups, whether it is a custom group or Other Contacts group.

Here's a strange thing. I just created 10 entirely random accounts in iPad and watched them synced on Gmail's. When I highlight some of these newly added contacts, I see randomly they got photo avatars assigned to them from my mother's old client's photo (not in the Photos as I checked) which tells me the information might still be stored somewhere on the flash drive/hard drive. Does anyone suggest I do a jailbreak?

Lost My Alert Sounds
Have lost the alert sounds, like the swoosh of outgoing mail, keyboard keystrokes etc. This happened once before and I went to settings and hit restore down at the bottom and this corrected it. Also I have a Bright House App. for watching TV and when I initially installed it there was no audio, the picture was great but no sound. After the restore it worked great for about two weeks and then I lost all the above listed sounds and now no audio again.
