To Completely Disable Mail Or Remove The Icon?

Our iPads are being distributed to students and I really want to remove the mail feature. Another possibility would be to keep their login info from saving.

Completely Remove A Deleted App Icon
I deleted an app, but it still shows up, shaded when "hide" is selected. How do you completely get rid of it, so that it isn't known that it was ever downloaded?

Completely Disable 3G Broadcasting?
I am wondering if disabling the cellular data option in fact turns off the 3G entirely. I want to make sure the 3G chip is not broadcasting at all ANY 3g spectrum.

I am having a difficult time finding out of course. I don't have a spectrum analyzer for the 3g range, otherwise I could find out rather easily.

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.

How can I get rid of it?

Lockout/disable The Settings Icon On The Main Screen?
My wife and I are the parents of a 13 year old special needs child. The Ipad has become a valuable tool for him. He is non verbal and wears hearing aids. He currently has the original Ipad and the Ipad 2. He uses one at school and the other at home. I have turned off Wifi,YouTube,installing apps etc on the Ipad at school.I have a few questions that I am hoping someone can help me with.Is there anyway to lockout/disable the settings icon on the main screen? He is constantly in the settings menu changing something. I have enabled the restrictions lock under the General Settings but this does not prevent him from changing all other settings.

Secondly is there away to make videos inaccessible to him at school. I rented a movie on his iPad from Itunes the other day. The school called about inappropriate content ( Transformers Movie) on the Ipad. I had turned off YouTube,wifi,safari and Itunes. I assumed this would stop the movie from playing. Once the movie is downloaded is there anyway to restrict access to it short of deleting it? I know if I rent via my desktop I can transfer the movie between the desktop an Ipad but with the Transformers movie I download directly to the iPad.

Unable To Remove Mail Icons - Mail Apps Not Working
I have now installed the mBox Mail App - as a Hotmail user - without any problems - so far! Mail icons on the Home Page have been exchanged but would like to Disable or Remove the iPad OE Mail App to avoid duplication of rec'd mail.

Is this possible? If so what do I need to do. I have been reluctant to 'mess about' with Mail Settings for fear of losing both!

How To Remove Unread Messages Notification From Mail App Folders
I was wondering if anyone can help me figure out how to remove the unread message notification in various mail folders in Ipad's mail app.What I mean is when I click on various folders (such as Drafts, Trash, Inbox, or Custom Folders I created) it updates the list of all the unread messages displayed on the first page of that particular folder. But if I haven't clicked on a particular folder, it doesn't show the notification of unread messages (even if I have unread messages in that folder). I'm trying to get back to where it doesn't show the unread message notification.Is there a way to remove the counter of unread messages that shows up (For instance, Trash 100 messages, Drafts 70 messages) without going through each message and "reading it"? I get annoyed by seeing unread messages

Red Notification On The Mail Icon
I have Mail listed in my notification center however, I don't get notified of new mails. The red circle on the Mail icon that should notify me of new emails doesn't appear. So, I keep having to launch the Mail app to check whether or not I have new emails and wait for them to get downloaded, when I exit the app this is when the red circle shows up with the number of the unread downloaded emails. Is this how it's supposed to work? Can't I get notified without having to launch it?

Floating Mail Icon In Status Bar?
So I received the iPad yesterday and, obviously, the first thing I did was jailbreak it. After setting it up and visiting Cydia to download some apps, I noticed that my mail icon randomly appears next to the battery percentage. It may sometimes go away if I launch an app (I've noticed this with native apps), but that's not always a given.

I thought it was a theme (which may or may not have been compatible with the iPad), but I've since uninstalled it. The problem still pops up (no pun intended). After a hard reset, it still appeared as well.he iPad is not even a day old, so if I have to, I'll just restore and set it up as new, but I'd rather hold off on that until further notice.

Has anyone come across this? I know I can just backtrack and uninstall each jailbreak app I installed, but I figured I'd ask just in case someone has seen this and knows what caused it.

Unable To Find Mail Print Icon
I have an HP Photosmart C7200 printer and am using Printopia to print via 4.2 and AirPrint. This works fine for both Safari and for Photo, but there is no appropriate print icon in Mail.

All three support printing so I don't see why Mail won't show a print icon (I know, could be a Printopia issue). Anyone have any ideas? I've cold started my iPad, forced Mail to quit and then restart, etc to see if maybe that would clear the issue. At this point I can't print via Mail. Anyone out there have Mail and Printopia working?

Mail Icon Changed Randomly To Blank?
Today I turned on my iPad 2 and noticed the mail icon was blank. I've made no changes at all, jailbrake or otherwise in weeks (it is jailbroken). Anyone know what causes this and a fix (other than a restore)?

I've done a hard reset and it didn't solve the issue.

Btw: I know how to manually change an app icon, butnim curious to know why this occurred and resolutions to prevent it.

When I did my initial "sync", the process entered all of my calendars onto my iPad. They are not "connected" to caldav, exchange, etc. and do not update. So, what I'd like to do is to remove all calendars and add them manually. However, I've not found a way to do this - any suggestions? I have removed the mail accounts (and will re-enter them) but I haven't found the method for removing calendars yet.
