I have a iPad for work and work gave it to me set up with all the programs that I need for work.
BUT they gave it to me with the App Store removed off it so I cant download ANY apps! So this is no fun and no good at all.
Is there any way I can get the App Store back on it or get Apps onto it with out jail breaking it?
Any thoughts....

wow... That's a bit extreme!

Can you still sync it to iTunes with no restriction? I would think you should be able to download the apps the rough the iTunes AppStore and sync the iPad to it and bresto!

Give it a shot, and good luck.

you don't drop the APPs on the iPad.
1) When you sync, click on the device icon in the left side panel and you will bring up the iPad configuration pages.
2) Click on the tab for Applications, and then go down and check in the check boxes the ones you want to be synced to your iPad.
3) Hit Apply and let it sync.

This should work

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I don't have my iPad with me, so I'm not certain it's exactly the same, but on my iPhone, under the General Settings is a setting called Restrictions. It removes the icon for various apps from the desktop, but doesn't remove them from the phone. You might check there and see if you can re-enable it. It's possible it's password protected, in which case, you're probably stuck unless you can get the password.

My thoughts are simply this: You don't own the iPad, your company does. And since it's their property and given to you for employment purposes, don't you think you should comply with what they've done?

Obviously they removed the App store so you or another employees would not arbitrarily download games and other apps that are not work related.

I'd imagine they'd take it off you if you installed things on it anyway. It ain't yours is it.

Personally, I think that the OP may be capable of weighing the risks of any modifications he may make to the device. The OP is looking for advice regarding the ability to get the app store back. Regardless of what his work intended, the OP is probably aware of what he/she is doing.

Just my two cents, not trying to start an argument

While I see the point about the OP being able to make his own decisions, I have to politely say that I believe the point that everyone is making is that OP does not own the iPad, rather his employer does. The OP's employer likely has reasons why they disabled the App Store and disabled app downloads. In only my opinion, I feel OP should respect & obey his employer's restrictions.

Yep, it is most likely that the employer does not want the OP to have the app store. However, there is also a chance it was removed by mistake (who knows?). So the OP may want to get it back on.

Most companies have this type of policy in place.
They give you the iPad because of productivity reasons, not for you to 'customize' it ( and increase their IT Support costs )

Removing the App Store was a VERY conscious decision on the part of the employer, so I'd recommend you work around this problem by buying your own personal iPad.

If the company has a deployment solution with MDM capabilities in place, they can also query the device for a list of installed apps without you knowing, so if you don't want to get into trouble, behave
