Apple's second generation slate might be the belle of the tablet ball, but for some, it continues to be a headache inducing slate. Adding to the list of problems that plague the iPad 2, we're now hearing complaints that Verizon's 3G iPad 2 sometimes needs to be rebooted in order to connect to 3G after previously switching it off.

The problem has cropped up in an Apple Support forum thread that now spans 6 pages. The thread opens with one user saying, "When I try to connect to the cellular data it just says iPad or Searching in the top of the screen. It did not work last night. If I do a hard reset I can get it to work. Switching Airplane mode on and off to reset the modem does NOT work."

He's not alone. Others in the thread have chimed in with similar stories, and at least one user says that restoring the iPad doesn't help. The problem doesn't appear to affect AT&T versions, only the CDMA models associated with Verizon.

The iPad 2, while arguably still the best tablet money can buy, has been marred by a handful of problems. In addition to this latest one, users continue to complain that the FaceTime camera sometimes freezes when exiting and re-entering the app, requiring a reboot to fix it. Yet others voiced concerns about a yellowish tint around the border, likely due to the glue not having a chance to dry. All this, and the iPad 2 is still in short supply.

They should be able to fix the facetime issue with a firmware update but certainly not the yellowish border if it is due to glue. Apples iPhone/iPad/iPod products all seem to have problems when they first come out and those early adopters who have to have the newest and greatest stuff get screwed in the end.

What do the people who make these thing get paid per hour? Maybe the glue problems would go away with a little more financial glue applied,........

Rofl realneil the people who make these work in China, North Korea, and maybe some South American country with a dictator. I imagine there pay is like 33 cents and hour or something. Do you really think an extra nickel will help that much. Oh yeah I think Apple came on strong to make sure there getting treated better now that may be 43 cents an hour now almost a half dollar per hour. I imagine those countries dictators Might think they were getting to powerful if the made 50 cents an hour and demand there first born or something.

You know one of the funniest thoughts I have had is that the US government should do two things go to a retail taxation system entirely, and raise duties on anything coming into this country significantly. I know I know were all tech junkies and we would die, but I also think it would be for the greater good. Not only would we get products assembled in this country again we would not be feeding off the weak.

It would overall raise world standards over all because it would raise minimal world salaries like has been done here (which is why all the companies have everything made elsewhere) for years. The thing is we are one of maybe 4 countries in the world (America, Europe to a varying degree, Australia, and Japan), and The US is the biggest cash cow of them all singularly. So it would either raise the world economy and our national GNP eventually or they all loose money period. The flat tax is because our current income tax is so last, last decade it is not even funny.

I will stick with my Touch until they make one that is so advanced it can expand in size as needed and cook me breakfast.
