Thanks, that did the trick (and battery was at 67%). What happened? And do I still need to take it in?
When in doubt always try a hard reset. Just like back in the day on Crackberry. First questions would always be, did you do a battery pull...
LOL! OS 6 should have been called "operation battery pull" instead of "operating system".
LOL, I chuckled when I read that. Funny I'm on os6right now, and well, every other day, yep you guessed it. I'm doing the 'ol bp because of the mem leaks I can't wait to get my iP4S. I'm hoping to be able to do so this mth
Anyway, my question in regards to a hard reset on an iPhone, or my iPad1 I currently have now-- as I'm not 100% sure, but is holding down the home button and the top sleep button together the process of this? And once the iPad or iPhone powers down to wait a moment or two, and then power back on, correct? TIA to anyone who can confirm this. I've had my iPad1 for 1+yrs now(2010) and I don't ever recall having to do this.
You are correct...hard reset is power + home...soft reset is power with the "slide to power off" slider.
I don't recall ever doing it on our iPad 2 either...then again, it doesn't get used nearly as much as our iPhones, so that may be way.
