HELP. I'm posting this here because I don't know where else to put it - this problem seems to encompass all of my devices, including my Macbook. When I woke up this morning after a VERY bad storm last night, both my iPhone AND my iPad were back to factory settings, as if I'd never used them. I did not do a factory reset on them, and neither did anyone else in the house. On my Macbook, there was an error message saying that another device on the network was trying to use my I.P. address and that I needed to try connecting again later. Another PC laptop in the house was giving a similar error message. When I googled about that, I found an article here: (http://osxdaily.com/2010/09/19/another-device-on-the-network-is-using-your-computers-ip-address/) that states that an iPhone, iPod or iPad is often the culprit when this issue occurs, so I wonder if that has anything to do with my iPhone and iPad being factory reset? I'm just grabbing at possibilities here. I have semi-recent backups for both my iPhone and iPad, so I should hopefully be able to get things back to how they were for the most part. What scares me more is the idea that my devices can spontaneously factory reset themselves AT ALL. I called my local Apple store and stumped the guy who picked up, who directed me to a Genius bar guy who said he didn't know what was going on and I'd have to bring all 3 devices in. I made an appointment for tomorrow morning, but wanted to see if anyone here could shed some light on what happened. Thanks.
