    The only way at the moment is to make a firmware restore, and don't let iTunes restore data from a backup - set it up as a new device…

    I can delete email address from my contacts by opening the contacts age and touching the edit button. To the left of the email address is a red-circled minus sign, Touch that sign and a red delete button come up on the right. If it does not have a red-circled minus sign touch the entry and the minus sign should show up. That is what I have to do the address entry to et the minus sign to show up.

    What exactly do you mean with that:
    "I have an email address in my email contacts and can not find a way to delete it."

    Is that address in your "Contacts"? Or does it appear when you type an address in your emails?

    It is an email address in my ipad contact list that I would like to delete.

    So it is an address in your app "Contacts"? Then just open Contacts, find the contact with the email, swipe over the email address or use the edit button to delete the email.

    @Apple4ever. My sister has two email addresses, however there also appears 2 email addresses that are false. (totalling 4 email addresses) but when I try to delete them, there's no way in the email app. When I go to the contacts app, the email addresses aren't even there. It sounded like you knew what you were talking about in the post, is there anyway besides doing a factory restore?

    Unfortunately not yet
    But that is an uncomplicated and painless thing…
    Make sure you connect the iPad first to iTunes and synch it, so you make sure you won t loose anything.
    Go on the iPad to "Settings - General - Reset - Erase all Content and Settings".
    After that is done, connect the iPad again to iTunes and -IMPORTANT- don't let iTunes restore the iPad from one of your backups, rather set it up as a new device.
    This should be easy and strait forward… if you have lots of data on the iPad, you can do it over night…

    I assume this implies that I will have to redo all of my contacts, calenders, email and any other information I have on there?
