Re: Apple stuff hard locks?
If I restore it and the apps still won't start I'll have to call this in to VZW and get a warranty replacement.
FWIW I know two people with iPad 1's and they both have had them do some pretty odd things. One guy had the same thing happen as I did although I'm not sure if his apps were broken after the reboot. The other one had his come up with the sad apple face but it started to work again for no obvious reason.
Chinese crap. lol
