Restore "setup Incomplete" Message Loop?

I have just updated my iPad today. Because in New Zealand we have such pitiful internet speeds and connections I had a number of issues with trying to update to the new IOS on my iPad ( from 4. something). It kept giving me a time out message.( by the way I have a PC running windows 7). So I downloaded the update and installed it manually. All looked fine, but when I started the iPad I had to go through the set up and at the end it gave me a message saying "Set up incomplete" with 2 options with the buttons Start Over and Continue, which do not take me any further.

Safari Shows An Infinite Loop Message
My Safari browser is giving me an error message that states I'm trapped in an infinite loop. An "OK" button appears to abort the loop, but the button seems frozen and just doesn't work. I tried simply turning the IPad on and off, but I'm still trapped in the loop. How do I reset the application?

And by the way - the loop got started when I visited a site to redeem frequent flier miles. Go figure!

Setup As New Or Restore From Original IPad 2 Backup
Is there any benefit to starting from scratch with my new iPad or are most people simply restoring from a backup of their existing iPads (I have an original).

Restore New Setup Kill My AT&T Unlimited Data Plan?
I'm going to be giving a presentation on the iPad's features to a business group I work with. Before giving the presentation, I'd like to fully restore my 64g+3G iPad and create a temporary "stock" profile - that way, I won't be presenting all my personal junk to the group. I have one main concern, though: I'm really anxious about possibly losing my $30-per-month unlimited data plan with AT&T - I got "grandfathered in" on the deal, and I know if I interrupt my service for even a moment, I'll have to downgrade to the 2gig-per-month plan.So, does anyone know if a restore / reset of the iPad would affect my AT&T plan, or would I just sign back in with my account details and pick up right where I left off?

Incomplete Backup To ICloud
I keep getting "Incomplete Backup" to iCloud on both my iPad and iPhone.

I've gone through all the recommended procedures, shut down auto backup on both, and restarted it on both, deleted the backups on my my iCloud account using iCloud on my PC, made sure the WiFi (8Mbit) was working and the iPhone and iPad were locked and plugged into the chargers.

Deleting Incomplete App Downloads?
When I tried to download apps using 3G connection, iPad2 prompted that app is more than 20mb and asked to use wifi. I am traveling and will not have access to wifi for a while. For now these apps stay at message 'loading' and are not letting me delete the apps. The delete icon does not appear for these apps. The prompt for switching to wifi keeps coming frequently and is annoying.

Incomplete Update / Now Unable To Access
Plugged in my iPad to my Macbook yesterday to charge it up and got a message saying there was a software update. I accepted and the software install hangs when about 95% complete. Tried it about 6 times now always the same result.

The restore function doesn't work as the only option you can select is restore and update software and it seems to be the latest software that is hanging.

Incomplete Shuffle Feature In Ipod App
I'm thankful to those who've pointed out that the shuffle function is available in the iPod app on the iPad. But not a whole lot of folks are pointing out that it is a very limited function that really cripples the music capabilities of this otherwise fantastic device.

You really only have the option of shuffling 1) your entire music collection, or 2) an individual album. We need the ability to also shuffle genres and artists! The last thing I want is to be enjoying some Ella Fitzgerald and then have it switch to Slayer. I want to be able to shuffle one genre at a time...whatever I'm in the mood for. Or I'd like to listen to my entire collection of one artist, but not in album order.

I don't think this is too much to ask. I really hope they make this change in a future version of the iPod app.

Incomplete List Of Apps In My Itunes Library
This has to be some kind of sick joke. Since April I've downloaded all sorts of apps on my ipad. By my count based on my itunes receipts, I've downloaded 253. When I look on the Itunes library it shows 96 apps on there. What happened to the other 158?Mostly it wasn't a big deal because they were either on my ipad or deleted. Recently though I've gone past the max limit and have to use the spotlight to find apps as if I can remember the names of 200 apps many of which I haven't had time to try yet. Plus if a good one is off the screens I can't move it.So to make a long story short I sync my ipad up so I could organize them and bam half my apps just disappear along with all their data. What the F? I did the transfer purchases to no avail. Now I don't have any way of seeing a complete list of the apps I've downloaded. So now do I really have to look through my receipts to find them all and do an individual search and download on 100+ apps?

Itunes is a joke. Why is it so **** hard for the apps library to show me a complete list of my apps? Is that really too much to ask for?I love my ipad but I gotta say apple does some really asinine stuff. Information:

Email App Check For New Mail But Process Incomplete On IPad 2
A couple of nights ago, email stopped working on iPad. The email application appears to be checking for new mail, but it never completes the process. I tried to go into mail, contacts, calendar settings, but when I select it, the settings application freezes. I can force it to quit, but trying it again produces the same result. I have performed a hard reset. No difference. Only one email account. It is an Exchange server. I have tried with and without iCloud active. Same result. I have upgraded from 4.3.5 to 5.1. Problem still exists.

Reboot Loop While Sync?
I have a really strange issue. Here is my system info:iPad 3G + Wifi 16GB. Windows 7 Professional x64 iTunes (Latest version) Windows XP Professional x86 iTunes (Latest version)
The problem I'm having, is if I plug my iPad into either of the above systems, it shows up in iTunes fine, and I can sync to it easily enough, but about 60 seconds after plugging it in, it reboots and gets into a reboot loop which can only be broken with a hard reset. Same thing if it starts up after a reset plugged in. Fine for 60 seconds, then restarts continuously.

Oddly, if I start it up unplugged, or if I connect it to a powerpoint, it's fine and runs with no problem. This started seemingly randomly yesterday evening.

I do the right click Back Up.

the other one about authorize this computer but then after sync half my apps are gone and I have to restore from back up and then it asks again if I want to erase this iPad! Maybe I need to erase the iPad and start all over again?

IPad 2 IOS 5 Stuck In Set Up Loop
My iPad 2 is stuck in a set up loop on iOS beta 5. I have a dev account so that is not the issue here. Once the iPad finishes the set up load all my apps and such and the before I can tap anything goes back to the set up process. Pretty sure I just need to restore and be done with it, but I don't really want to since I am lazy and don't ever back up and haven't done a back up since I did the upgrade to iOS 5.

It Stuck In Boot Loop
My iPad is stuck in a boot loop. I've tried DFU and recovery mode with no success. I get different errors: 1601, 1611, 2001, and still other ones. Apple's site recommends me to check the connection. But my iPod Touch is syncing normally, and I've been trying two cables. And I've been trying on a PC and on a MacBook.

When I google my problem, most of the links are about jailbroken iPads, but mine is not.

ITunes Endless Credit Card Loop
I can no longer download apps to my iPad due to an endless loop asking me to enter a valid credit card. This happens in iTunes and in the iPad's app store. The credit cards I've used to purchase apps have $25,000+ limits and just worked two days ago in iTunes. I've used them just today for other minor purchases elsewhere. I have tried 6 different credit cards with $20,000+ limits, with the correct addresses, security codes, and everything perfect. None are working now. Itunes loops and keeps saying "Your credit card was declined. This happens also when I try to set it up with two different VALID Paypal accounts.I can't even download FREE apps now! What gives? I'm on the latest version of iTunes.

Defaults To Shuffle - Loop When Selecting A Song
Whenever I use the Search facility to find a song, when I click on the song's name the iPod application launches, as expected, and the song starts to play. However, the Shuffle and Loop indicators are selected (blue color), even though I had not selected them before in the iPod. This also happens when I select a song from the iPod's directory. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Safari Launching YouTube Stuck In A Loop
I was visiting the YouTube website because the App only let's you post comments a couple of times before it says unavailable. On YouTube the capture kicks in to prevent spam but there you have the option to fill it in.

Anyway, I'm asked to log in on the main site and it triggers launching the App. Now every time I return to Safari it continues to immediately do it again. I don't have time to close the tab. I've tried wiping, history cookies and cache in the settings but that didn't work.

I've had to install the Atomic browser to come here. I don't want to do a full reset of everything just for this. I'm away from my desktop.

Died - Froze And Went Into A Contant Loop Of Rebooting
After 6 months use, it froze and went into a contant loop of rebooting. After a few hours trying to restore,reflash back to a new device I gave up and called Apple.

Not a scratch on it. It has left the house maybe 6 times in 6 months. We have no kids, and it is taken care of. Only issue I did have with it is that it takes forever to backup it up taking upwards of 24hrs with only 2-3 gig used on it. It's never felt warm, and considering where I live, heat is not an issue.

It locked up while just sitting idle with no apps running. Now all I see is the apple symbol and then it reboots. Strangely it does let me reflash it "IF" I can get it to talk to the PC at all. Most times iTunes will tell me that it can not connect to the iPhone, yes iPhone device due to unknown error.

So I'm waiting for a empty box to arrive, then it goes back. My question is, do I get the same one back or a refurb? and if it is a refurb, why didn't they just send the refurb to me in the first place and I'll send mine back in the same box. Not a very impressive return process imho. As of now, it's Thursday, I still have no empty box to arrive, then I'll send mine back, that will take another week for sure, and then send another back to me.....guessing 3 week turnaround at least.

So much for Apple reliability. My first Apple product dies in 6 months. With that said, I do miss it quite a bit.

Jailbroken Stuck In Reboot Loop After Installing WinterBoard?
As the subject line says, I've just jailbroken my iPad (3G, 32G, iOS 3.2.1), and all was going well until I installed WinterBoard and it asked me to reboot. Now all I see it the white Apple logo for a few seconds then it reboots spontaneously, and this repeats forever.

Is this a know issue?

I assume I'll be able to restore my iPad when I get home and it will work normally again...

After Sync, Re Syncs Sort Of 10mints Or More Times And Stuck In A Loop
This has been annoying me for ages. I've got several devices, had several iPhones and the procedure shold be:

1) connect to laptop
2) iTunes syncs device
3) iTunes says it's done syncing
4) device goes back to home (or lock) screen

With my iPad, after iTunes says it's done syncing, it gets stuck in a loop, sometimes for minutes at end, where the apple icon plus wait spinner comes up again and again with the sound that normally occurs when you first connect. This can't be right. So how exactly can I fix it? FWIW, I am completely up-to-date with OS updates.

IPad Music Playing - 3 GNR Albums And Can Only Loop One Album At A Time
Why does the iPod app in the iPad only play one album at a time and not all songs from the artist as on the iPhone/iPod?  For example, I have 3 GNR albums and I can only loop one album at a time.  Where on the iPhone/iPod it shows "all songs" and plays them. Does anyone else have this issue and is there a way to make the iPad iPod function work the same as the iPhone and iPod?
