I have the ipad two and is only 3 months old. I am operating

Resolved Question:

I have the ipad two and is only 3 months old. I am operating via wireless from my office. I can send and receive gmail, but cannot load any of the other aps. Just now as I entered my password, the ipad took the password XXXXX would not open. I tried to cancel, nothing. Tried to start again, nothing. It appears to have locked up. Can you help?

Sometimes iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod, etc...) get into a bad state where they need to be reset. This will happen from time to time. If it happens again in the future, use this method to fix it
