    Default New Ipad 2 Locks Up

    Hi,
    I am quite happy with the new ipad 2 haven't had any of the problems surfacing in forums. But Today 2 days old it just locked up screen on but no movement, couldn't switch it off. I held both home and off button which seemed like an enternity and finally it switched off, I then powered it on and it seems OK. anybody else had this problem..

    Yikes - no, not with me. Sounds like a weird problem. Was it due to an app you were using maybe?

    Yeah but I think you need a US iTunes account. And so a US CC or iTunes gift card. Anyway, off topic. Sorry.
