    Hey guys,

    First time poster here. So corporate has blocked a manager's ipad from being able to access Safari or the Apple Store. Consequently, the manager is limited to Maps, iPod, Videos, GoodReader and a few other apps, none of which will allow him access to a URL address or any way to browse the internet. Do you guys have any ideas/workarounds for adding a browser without knowing a restriction code?

    Tell hime to get the 3G version.

    Oh, wait. You mean they blocked the actual iPad ON the iPad?

    Will it ask for code when synchronizing an app through the ipad connected to a computer

    Hmm...that's interesting. I'll let you know on that one. Could work possibly.


    They even disabled iTunes. Ahh...corporate h-e-double hockey sticks. Looks like we're gonna start the bribing process...

    So what exactly is the manager supposed to use the iPad for then? Is there anything that is corporate sanctioned? Email? Citrix?

    No kidding. Sounds like a waste of several hundred dollars of the company's money. There are cheaper ways to get portable email.

    And mine.

    Could go the full restore option, but not sure what settings you would loose? Maybe access to work wifi?
