    Good morning!

    I have been trying to update my iPad to iOS 4.3 for a day now, and haven't had any success. I have updated iTunes to 10.2.1 (Windows/PC). When connect my 64GB 3G iPad, it just performs a standard sync, and says that my iPad's SW is up to date. When I click on "Check for update" on the iPad summary screen, iTunes gives me a message that 4.2 is the current version. I have never had any updating issues with iTunes, my iPad, or any other iPhone, so I'm a bit baffled. I've googled this, but haven't found anyone else having the same issue (I originally thought that Apple was throttling the updates so that everyone wouldn't update at once, but everyone else that I know with an iPad has had a successful update). Thanks in advance for reading this, and for any suggestions or solutions.

    Take care

    Any help on this?

    I've been having the same problem since it released. Still can't load 4.3

    I had to find the 4.3 update file and manually update via the file. The was speculation that the problem was caused by upgrading to 4.2 outside of the normal upgrade method. But I can't confirm that. I'm not even sure if I ended up doing that.

    If it's the same problem I had, it will have nothing to do with firewalls. My iPod updated just fine. It was the iPad having the problems.
