Just got a gift of iPad 2 with wi-fi only. After opening the wrapper and switched on, it asks for Language / Country and then the Network connection. At present I dont have wi-fi connection. Hence I could not continue the process. Whether configuring the network access is compulsory and only after this step, I will get the application Icons? I do have interent connection through dangle-USB connector and dont have iPhone.

iPad 2, iOS 5

    If you don't have WiFi access and you do not have a computer running iTunes 10.5.3 that you can activate the iPad with - you are sort of stuck at this point.

     

    Do you have a computer that is running iTunes 10.5.3? You could try plugging the iPad in with the cable - launch iTunes and see if the activation process will start.

    Would iTunes still need to contact the activation server?

    Go to your nearest Apple Reseller and ask them to help you setup the iPad with their router.

    Yes it still needs to contact the server - but I assumed that could be accomplished with an Ethernet connection of the computer to a cable modem to get internet access. The computer and iTunes are connecting to the Internet via the modem and the iPad is connected to the computer and can activate that way.
