Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

Please press and hold down the POWER and HOME buttons together on your iPad until you see the Apple icon. After you see the icon, release the buttons and the iPad will restart. After the restart, do you still have the issue?

far ok but I haven't used all things that required sound yet. However Siri works which helps me so much. I'm old and have trouble with safari. I hope to get one of those devices that you can be heard in the house or room. Before I lose my mind eventually. I am very ill

I heard the iPhone ring but not the iPad. I've had this iPad a couple of months. Then one day it rang. It hadn't ever done That. I answered and it worked perfect. I almost drowned my iPhone obviously due to the reception. I now for some reason cannot call or get rings on this iPad. When u called only my iPhone rang. I really need it to work on this iPad. If there was an accident and I had to call for help iPhone sometimes makes me wait for almost 30 minutes to text or call. Please help me

I got charged for a phone call. I should get credit. The problem was no sound or ringing and it forced a call to test. Test proved it did not work yet. It was a test. Please don't charge me for that. Otherwise it would have been an unsuccessful transaction. I would have reported a scam. But the call was part of the repair. I have yet to rate stars or tip my expert. He was great but did not inform me that the test call would cost me. Too large of a charge if you ask me.

As a technician, I do not handle any type of payment information. You requested the phone call (all payment information is shown on your screen) and I made a phone call to test your line for you which showed that the iPad did not ring so I provided you with the next steps to turn on the iPad setting to fix the issue.

I am not sure why you are mentioning scam when I have helped you resolve your issue.
