    Hello, i have an ipad air wifi with a strange problem. After activating it when i click on safari and/or camera both the icons disappear from the screen permanently. SO i restored the ipad and when i try setting it up i get info "Configuration allows Sabine Parish School District to manage this ipad over air" and "Sabine Parish School District will automatically configure your ipad"? Then after setup i can see all the icons on screen. I then get the message "Sign in to itunes to allow 'ios.meraki.com' to manage and install apps. I click cancel still after a few seconds 'Camera' and 'Safari' icons disappear. Can anyone help me solve this problem?
    Thanks....

    I assume you got a stolen iPad on your hands?

    Yes, the school district administrator has to remove that iPad from their account.

    The reason your Safari and Camera icons disappear is because the school district probably didn't want students using those apps, so they disabled them.

    Contact them.

    Do you go to that school? How did you acquire that iPad?

    Sounds like the device is enrolled in Apple's Device Enrollment Program.
    http://www.apple.com/business/dep/

    From googling around, it seems like the device can only be disowned from DEP by the original company/school that enrolled it.

    I can not see the school system helping you out in getting their stolen iPad up and running. At any time they could reset the device back to new dumping anything you have in there. They are in control as they own it.

    It's good you've contacted them. It may turn out to be a stolen iPad in which case you could send it back to them. It's not often that stolen property ends up back in the hands of the rightful owner but it's great when it does.

    Well I paid for the iPad and I can't afford to gift it back, maybe they'll just disable it for me

    They won't - It is their property. Why should they give it to you?

    Do you really believe they will just say "sure, it belongs to us, but we will let you keep our stolen property and use it"?

    I'm assuming there is a profile being installed? Can you remove it? General -> Settings -> Profile.

    I have a feeling the school is going to demand their property back. Do the right thing. If they ask for it back, return it to them. Consider it a lesson learned.

    Like a few have said, they will not unlock it for you. Just curious where did you purchase it? eBay??

    Just make sure when you send it back you package it nicely so it doesn't get damaged in transit.

    If someone stole your car would you then send them the keys? Why on Earth would they help you use their stolen property?
