    I know it is not going to happen but I wish that iOS5 would have a way to have separate logins from the lock page so my wife, son and I could have different spring board apps and mail. (so I wouldn't need to worry at all about my kids deleting mail etc.)

    Maybe by iPad #5 and iOS 6.

    There's a lengthy thread about this here:


    The bottom line is that the iPad is not intended to be a multi-user device. Accounts are not necessary if only one person uses it, and if more than one person uses it you make the trade off of giving those other people access to your stuff.

    Apple doesn't want to sell you ONE ipad for three people to use; they want to sell you THREE ipads.
