    At our school they recently started checking out iPads to student, so I decided to check one out for a week. it sucks, because they have everything blocked, so I put a couple games from the Internet on the home screen. Well after I did that I realized I couldn't delete them, and I realized in the contract they made me sign, it threatened if you put any type of games on it to make you buy a new one. I was wondering if there is anyway around this without changing anything like the software.

    not without doing a restore and losing the passcode lock... but then they'll know when the passcode is different.

    ...

    You didn't put a game on it. You put a link to a game on the home screen. Nothing is installed on the iPad doing that other than a link. Just like a bookmark in a web browser

    Simple, play dumb. Claim it was there when you got it.

    And that's exactly what's wrong with society these days.

    Man or woman up and take responsibility for YOUR screw up.

    If it really just is a link the press and hold the icon untill it starts shaking and the press the "X" on the corner. If that works be happy if not pay for a new ipad.

    see it did say if i put a game ON it, and this is only a link so i think i'll be fine. it would be absolutely ridiculous if they made me buy a new one for that. thanks for the help.

    I do not know, an internet game is "any type" of game. If it were me, I would make you pay, just to use you as an example. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.

    Because they are cheaper, more functional, lighter, more secure and easier to distribute information, than a traditional dell laptop most schools would carry

    There's actually quite a few schools down here that each student is given a laptop we're talking High Schools with 1500+ kids... Within the first week kids were being robbed walking home from school for the laptops..
