    When I go into settings/general/software update I get an error message that says "unable to check for update". Cancel or Try Again. Is anybody else getting this? Why am I getting this?

    Thanks

    The check for update worked on the earlier beta versions I had but it hasn't worked since I got the GM version.

    They haven't turned it back on yet. There isn't a need. First thing they need to do is get everyone on iOS 5 first. Then they can worry about turning on WiFi updating. Plus they would need a patch, which I doubt they have ready yet.

    I'm getting the same error. I got the notification of update once. But, then , i could not update at that point. I'm trying to check again and it gives me "Unable to check for update" again and again.
    Updating iOS sucks.... be it apps , be at OS update... every 15-30 days, i get about 80-100 app updates and when i tried to "update all", it always reports "not enough storage available" error. I deleted my backups, apps and ensured 5.6 GB is available. Still it complains with same error. I had to update the apps one by one and it takes about 8-16 hrs to complete all updates... I'm just sick of this update thing.

    i tried to sell it and unable to find any buyers...
    I just can't rid of this ipad2!!!

    Sounds like you really need to performa Fresh Restore via iTunes... then reinstall your apps. Seems as though you've picked up a glitch somewhere.

    Mine worked ok a few minutes ago. Connected on a strong secure WiFi spot, the download took only a couple of minutes with total d/l and install 15 min. I kinda like not having to hook up to the PC and mess about.

    It will be nice to have photo-stream back on.
