Rotating Doesn't Change Screen Direction?
When I rotate my iPad, the screen icons do not change position as it did in the beginning. Did I change a setting?

Screen Is Not Rotating At All
Over the course of the last day, my iPad has stopped rotating when moved from upright to landscape.
The screen lock is not on and I have tried turning the lock on/off, restarting, and also resetting.
I also tried resetting the iPad settings but without success.
I seem to be getting the "undo typing" message more often as well (and especially when I turn it right/left to try and get the screen to cooperate).
This is bumming me out and I can't find any other settings for it or apps to test whether it's a hardware or software issue.

IPad 2 - Screen Not Rotating ?
Occasionally, the screen refuses to rotate for no good reason; I have verified screen rotation is not locked through the software or switch, and the only fix is to reboot the iPad. Is there a fix for this, or is it a known issue that will possibly be resolved in iOS 4.3.1?

After Updated To IOS 5.1 - IPad 2 Screen Not Rotating Anymore
I updated to iOS 5.1. the other day, and my iPad 2 won't rotate anymore even if the screen is not locked. I went to service center, and after testing the iPad's accelerometer playing some game, the guy at the service center thought that it is not a hardware problem, but more on the 5.1 update. Weird thing is, I enabled the "assistive touch" feature's "rotate screen" function, and the screen rotates, although with prompting. That is, it will rotate only after I choose or unchoose to either "rotate screen" to portrait or left or right.

Twitter Username Change Doesn't Show
Any Twitter users here? I'm just getting organized for Twitter and successfully changed my username on the desktop PC and then the profile pic but neither change appears in the iPad app. Strangely the new website URL updated automatically and a few tweets show that I did from the desktop. I go to Profile, Edit Profile, change the name but still no update. I tried changing the photo to the exact same one I used on the PC and that didn't take.

So I deleted a 3.6gb movie, but it still showed only 1.8gb available. What gives?mi deleted another 5gb worth of video, and still only 1.8gb available.
I have tried soft resets and even a reset all settings, still 1.8gb remaining.

Won't Switch Direction?
My - well actuallt my works' - iPad won't switch direction when I turn it. I.e. it stays in landscape mode when I hold the pad in portrait, landscape and all other directions.
It appears to be stuck/ frozen, but it's only in its' direction. The pad can be used reading papers, scrolling og surfing on the net.
It may be possible to reset the iPad to remedy the situation, but as the iPad isn't mine I'm asking you bright people here to help me with a solution that won't reset the iPad to the state it was in when it was brand new ...loosing everything in it already in the proccess.
As the iPad isn't mine I don't have a back-up or have it enabled in my iTunes.

Syncs Apps In Only One Direction?
After a full Erase all Contents and Restore as new device (not from backup), as well as erasing all iTunes backups of this iPad and iCloud backups as well.
I've synced to Mac and to iCloud, synced not Wifi and with Wifi. I've repaired permissions as well. I can sync anything by using iTunes to install. It always works in that direction. However, if I delete any app from the iPad or add any app from the iPad - a sync will simply wipe out the apps added.
Apps added or deleted from iTunes on Mac sync fine, apps added or deleted from iPad home screens / App store, etc - do not sync.

Upper Left Direction Arrows - Safari Browser
I'm on a site and can maneuver back and forth with the upper left direction arrows. But sometimes I follow a link which opens a new page and I don't see how to return to my previous set of pages. No arrows. On a PC I would just click the origninal tab. But I see nothing to click here. HOME pulls me all the way out of the internet and I have to start all over. There is a way, right?

Add/Change Contact Info - Make Changes To A Contact In ICloud And It Doesn't Appear
Using Outlook 2007 on a PC (Windows 7) together with an iPad and the iPhone. Then throw in the iCloud experience and I'm getting mixed results. It got so bad that I had to call Apple for support for iCloud because of errors that would not allow iCloud to load. They never did solve the problem but it is fixed.
Now if I add a photo to a contact using the iPhone the photo never gets to the iCloud. I make changes to a contact in iCloud and it doesn't appear on the iPhone/iPad. I just made a change to a contact using Outlook and the change did appear in the iPad/iPhone. But I have made changes before this that didn't appear in the iCloud/iPad/iPhone. Might it be better to remove the iCloud from the equation and just sync with Outlook?

Touch Screen Doesn't Work?
And have noticed that a part of the touch screen doesn't work, I have tried resetting but there is no difference. Has anyone had this issue? Do I have to send back to apple to get fixed or can I just take back to the store I bought it from? Hanks

IOS.5 Doesn't Get A Home Screen Overhaul
First off, I never really post on this forum, i usually browse. But i felt like i should post a thread to hopefully spark some constructive discussion on the iOS Grid Icon home screen vs. the customizability of Honeycomb...
Look at this screen:
I own an iPad2, iPhone4, ATV2, and a MacPro tower (i work in gfx/video). So i'm entrenched in the Mac ecosystem, and so far it's been nothing be a pleasure. But i'm also open minded... I think the over simplified, grid icon look is tiresome and quite frankly, becoming an eyesore. After watching videos of the Xoom w/ 3.1 on it, I'm amazed... and kind of regretting my iPad purchase.
The ipad screen is huge, it needs to be utilized.. widgets, split screen, etc. Why wouldn't you want to know the weather/time/recent emails and currently playing songs ALL AT ONCE? blah... i'm crossing my fingers for WWDC! I know I can jailbreak to customize but the themes available right now are weak...

Screen Rotation Doesn't Work?
I just recieved my iPad in the mail yesterday, opened it, set it up and immediately the screen rotation didnt work. For clarity, the screen rotates, just opposite of the way I am holding it.
I have gone through all of the troubleshooting techniques other threads and Apple suggest, to no avail. The rotation will be fixed for a minute or two and then with the least bit of turn to my wrist, it goes back upside down.

Screen Is Sticky - Doesn't Slide Softly
I have a very simple problem with my ipad that drives me INSANE. My screen feels sticky. it's not sticky that much but I can not softly slide my finger on the screen, and it really prevents playing games, writing with hand, painting and simple (but important) stuff like that.
I did not clean my ipa with anything other thana drop of water and mirofiber so far. I did not use any chemicals on it. Did not stick or remove anything of it. I'm using it exactly as I should, but after 3 weeks of using it, I felt this feeling in the starting of this week. Right now it's driving me insane, literally.
I searched / googled about this simple problem, but most of the people having the same problem somehow used chemicals on their screens.
I bought my ipad from another country so it seems like its impossible for me to take it to the warranty check within a sooner time range.

Safari Screen Grayed Out And Doesn't Function?
Suddenly, the Safari browser stopped working. The screen appears grayed out and touching buttons in the Safari content area doesn't do anything. The search and address windows work and new pages load, but they don't function. The back and forward and other buttons also don't work.I haven't changed anything (that I know about)since the last time everything worked a few minutes ago.

How To Change The Screen?
So I bought a second hand iPad today, and got a killer deal because the screen has some cracks in the top corner (only over the bezel though, and it's the top that is cracked, not the LCD). I was just going to tape it up, but I wonder if anyone has any experience replacing these?
Apple want ï¿½300+ change to do the job, but that's not worth it in my opinion. Does anyone know where I can buy the genuine apple part in the UK, and how easy it is to pop the existing one off and put a new one on?
EDIT: It's a 32GB 3G by the way, if that makes any difference, and the cracks are near where the top goes black for the 3G receiver).
