Hi - I had the 1st generation iPad and then got the 2nd generation. With the first, I had off and on trouble with typing in one thing and getting something else altogether, but it would come and go. With the 2, I can't type anything on the screen that makes any sense and when I backspace to remove it, it also places all kinds of strange characters on the screen. I am extremely frustrated so would appreciate anything anyone can do. I did check that it's set to the QWERTY keyboard option so that's not the problem. I need help as the Genius Bar closest to me is an hour or so away. I have had it about 2 weeks and it has been going on almost from the beginning. I have re-set it a couple of times and that didn't help either. Please help. Thank you.
