You say your ipad is using windows 7? That cannot be right. Are you needing assistance with an iPad, iPhone or a computer?

I have an Ipad 2
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I need assistance for Ipad 2 not my laptop.
Mac Support Specialist: comp_audio, Mac Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Okay, thanks for clarifying that information. I am trying to better understand what is going on and how I can assist you.

Please tell me as it is somewhat confusing. You say you just found your iphone, how does this tie into the issue with your ipad?

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
