What Is The Padlock And Circular Arrow Icon?

I now have a small icon to the left of the battery percentage number at top right which is a padlock surrounded by a circular line with an arrow at one end. Can someone please explain what this is. It wasn't there originally but now never goes away.

I found that my SIM card was not enabled for roaming but the operator says he has now enabled roaming.

Padlock Icon On IPad 2 Where Time Should Be?
Basically, where the time normally is, there is now a padlock icon and I don't know why. It's not the lock rotation icon, it's where the time should be.

Unable To Play Videos - Arrow Has Turned Into A Pause Icon
When I hit the arrow to play the video, the screen goes black where the video was and the arrow has turned into a pause icon. This is the first time I have had trouble playing videos.  Has there been a recent update that would affect video playback on an iPad?I know my MacBook Pro had an update concerning security updates to flash video playback in the last couple days....

How do I delete a web page in Safari when there is a padlock on the right hand side of the tab? Every time I open a new page it stays on the system and is driving me crazy! All the instructions I've read just say swipe from left to right and click delete or the cross on the right hand side of the tab.

Cannot Arrow Around In Text
I've noticed that in web text entry forms you cannot arrow around within the text.I noticed this ironically enough on the apple site writing a review for the ipad case.Once the text got long enough there was no scroll bar to the right and no arrows on the keyboard to arrow down to text that was now below the text entry box cut off line.

Arrow Keys Missing
I know this has been discussed before. But lack of arrow keys to me is a big issue and flaw with the product. Many websites present a dialog or input entry box that is impossible to scroll and navigate in, without arrow keys. This even includes this website where once you enter your comments and attempt to go back to edit, you can't scroll within the data entry window.

Am I missing some new functionality with iPad that provides cursor navigation, or is everyone experiencing the same problem?

Cursor/Arrow Keys.
Could Apple not put them in the same black bar above the virtual keyboard where the "Previous" and "Next" buttons appear? I think that might be a great spot for them?

It would make editing much easier for me if there were some arrow keys available - I find using the finger/magnifying glass slows me down!

Where Are The Arrow Keys On The Keyboard
Where do you find the arrow keys (up, down, left, right) on the keyboard? I find it frustrating when working in pages or numbers and I can't move through a body of contents with the arrow keys. I've had my iPad 2 for about 3 months and still don't know where the arrow keys are?

No arrow keys means I can't edit posts in many PHP based forums. DRAG. Of course we could try and force the world to follow standards, or make a product the I want to use instead of just show off.

Popup Keyboard Needs An Up And Down Arrow Keys
I just got my iPad and I discovered right off the bat that the popup keyboard needs an up down arrow keys for scrolling. Sometimes when I'm replying to a message in a forum, I need to scroll down to the bottom of the quoted text. But as far as I know the popup keyboard doesn't have an up down arrow keys so it's difficult to scroll. So is there a way to scroll up and down other than with the missing arrow keys?

Why Does Back Arrow In The Top Left Not Go To The Previous Page
Often times I will be on a page in Safari and go to another page, then when I touch the back arrow it goes to a page totally unrelated. For instance I. Was at a Real Estate page looking at a property. I went to a link on that page and I wound up at a MacWorld page from another day. If I look up something in Google if I touch a link in that page, I have to go bad k. To Google to get back. The four finger swipe doesn't get to the page I want either. I sure wouldn't trade this thing for a real computer. This OS leaves a lot to be desired.

System Freezez And Keyboard Arrow Keys Not Working?
I've had my iPad for almost a week now. I'm one that has a connectivity issue. I did the "fixes" but I still lose the connection after turning it on. I just have to reconnect and it usually stays on.

Here are my issues with the iPad:
1) l love the keyboard but miss the arrow keys
2) I can't organize my pics into groups as I have a pc and there's no app for the iPad. and there's no identifying info on the pics.
3) I don't really care about the inability to multitask....yet. I haven't had a need to so far.
4) I've had random screen freezes.
5) The touch screen doesn't always work the way I need it will miss when I try to place the cursor.

There's a lot I love about the iPad but I'm not sure about keeping it. Thoughts?

Why The Arrow Keys (in Particular) Don't Work As Navigation Controls For The Screen
I bought the Mac bluetooth keyboard to use with my iPad 2 and it's great, but I don't understand why the arrow keys (in particular) don't work as navigation controls for the screen. (In Pages, for example, they do work as you would expect -- you can scroll up/down, left/right, home/end, etc.) But in a typical app screen (email, for example) they are inoperative.

Prior to getting the Mac keyboard I had the Zagg keyboard/dock unit and I believe it DID have those navigation functions, as well as some other dedicated function keys (like the Home button). So I'm just wondering if anyone knows if or when Apple might be making those features available for the bluetooth keyboard, as I imagine there are a lot more of them in use than the Zagg.

When Touch App Icon A Thin Line Appear Around The Icon?
Suddenly my iPad is not responding as before. It is acting like a regular desktop window manager!
Now, when I touch an app icon, the icon is selected. A thin line appear around the icon, like it would be on a normal desktop window manager. Then to launch the app I have to double click. The strange thing is that even if I double click somewhere else, it's the selected app that is launched.It's exactly the same for the virtual keyboard. One click select the key, two clicks (anywhere) press the key.If I swipe one finger left, the icon to the left is selected (and vis-versa).What the ****? Is this a secret features I have somehow activated? Is there any simple way to go back to the good-ol' multitouch interface?
I have tried to shut down and reboot the ipad (home-click+power 5sec). Nothing works.

Unable To Remove App Icon - Icon Having Loading Under It
I had some unknown issue trying to purchase and download an application onto my ipad. Ultimately, I got it worked out somehow but there is a blank icon left on my display with the title 'loading...' underneath it. The app was successfully installed and it's icon works just fine. I synched with iTunes on my Mac yesterday, hoping that would result in the icon being removed but it is still there. The blank icon doesn't appear in the Apps page under iTunes after the synch completed.

Apple Bluetooth Keyboard - Arrow Keys Wouldn't Work ?
This may not be the right place for this, but I have really been struggling to find a good keyboard to pair with my first iPad. I have the apple keyboard, and absolutely love it, but when I paired it with my fathers iPad 2, the arrow keys wouldn't work...I did some research, and it seems like thats just reality. Kind of a deal breaker for me, as I was looking to do a lot of typing on the iPad and the arrow keys are pretty essential for that. So, I go ahead and buy the Kensington Apple iPad 2 key folio Pro performance not even thinking the arrow keys would work on that, and they do!


So whats the deal? is it possible to override whatever apple has done to disable the use of the arrow keys on the keyboard they make? If not, has anyone come across a good, portable bluetooth keyboard that they have paired with the iPad? As much as I like the Zaggfolio, I have casing worked out, but this keyboard thing is kind of ridiculous.

For example, I found this logitech that says if its for the iPad, but 65 bucks? and who knows if it even has the arrow function I'm looking for...[URL]
