    I have bought a new ipad today 32gb wi fi 3G got home from store and started to charge it...it is now 5 hours and is showing nothing at all except when I try to turn it on there is a USB diagram and an itunes logo...that is it.. it does not show how much charge is there or whatever.:( I am wondering how long it is going to take. Can anyone help is this normal? I have found the manual very disappointing and also the help on line.:mad:

    Have you plugged it into a computer yet? The icons you are getting are indicating that you need to connect the iPad to iTunes to activate it.

    You need to download itunes on your PC or Mac and connect your ipad to activate it. You don't need to wait fro it to charge, they normally come with a healthy charge anyway.

    It does say this in the manual.

    If you have not already, download itunes. Then reconnect the ipad again.

    If nothing is happening still, make sure that you are connected directly to your pc. For example, if you are using a usb port on your keyboard, it may not be able to sync.

    Assuming you bought it brand new the sim card should already be in the device. If you are trying to activate it go the the settings app on your ipad and check the Cellular Data setting.
