    Don't get me wrong I use the iPad now than my laptop. I went to my friend house which is next door. Connected to my wifi beautifully n strong signal connection. When I walked back home. Safari wouldn't load any pages. That's the only flaw but still love this damn thing

    I may be missing something, or maybe misreading your post, but I don't understand how your iPad is "frozen".

    Maybe some more details of the problem will clear up your exact issue.

    Did Safari work, after closing it and re-opening it?

    Do any other apps work?

    From the way you describe it, it could be your internet stopped working in the time that it took you to walk back home. Maybe I'm missing the point entirely and you put the iPad in the freezer as punishment for not loading a page in Safari ;)

    Safari has frozen on me like this twice. All of a sudden the screen goes white and nothing will load. I can push the home button and do whatever I want in other apps but then I go to safari and it's still frozen. A restart was necessary both instances.

    Atomic browser has done this several times as well, exactly how you describe. I wonder if there is some kind of connection?

    I am guessing it's the webviewui component that is crashing, but not ending gracefully. Although, it crashing causing the application mainframe to crash isn't unlikely.

    Was the real reason that it was frozen because your left it in your freezer overnight?

    Had alot of freezing in Safari it would inevitbaly freeze after about 10-15 miuntes of browsing, also had a number of apps that wouldnt open they would just blackscreen then eventually after a long wait kick me back out to the home screen.

    Not sure what caused it but I hooked it up to my computer and did a restore via itunes and all seems to be well again. Hopefully this doesnt become a recurring problem but if your having issues do a restore and see if it fixes it.
