The Best Laid Plans of Men And iPads

I was going to do so many things today.  Not that I just lazed around either!

Ever since Saturday night, my iPad kept telling me that I didn't have a SIM card inserted, which I knew wasn't true.  I've had a Virgin Mobile SIM card for two years now to be able to text people with my iPad - this is so important to me so that I can feel safe and connected with my friends!

Well, anyway, I did  everything I could think of to make my iPad recognize the SIM card. I took it out and put it back in. I restarted the iPad three times, but with no luck.

And then, I found out via Google that people who also had this problem went to a Virgin Mobile store or a store, like The Source, that sells Virgin products.  So, I went to The Source at College Park and asked them for help.  They told me that there was nothing wrong with the SIM card, there was a problem with the iPad.  They said I should go to the Apple store and ask one of the geniuses to help.

So I did, and it wasn't as bad as I had expected.  They didn't make me wait for hours or insist that I make an appointment. I had a real nice guy named Tatum, and it only took about an hour.  I could have sent my iPad away to get a part replaced, or get a whole new one right away for half the price.

I took the latter option, and I've been setting up my preferences all evening long.

Rob would be so proud of me!
