Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

First we can reset your iPad and see if it works or not. Press and hold down the Power button and Home button at the same time until it shows the Apple logo. When you see the Apple logo, release the buttons and let it boot.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

If that didn't work, then you can reset the settings of your iPad. This will reset some settings like wallpaper, WiFi, bluetooth etc

To do that, go to Settings, tap General, tap Reset and tap Reset All Settings. Remember, doing this will disconnect your iPad from your WiFi network. So you have to reconnect back to your WiFi network. Then check Safari and Mail.

If you don't know your WiFi password, please let me know before resetting all settings.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
