    A question about synching to iTunes when one is not getting a signal
    from an IPad.

    Say for example, you'd like to sych a picture to your pc but there is no
    signal where you are at to connect to iTunes.

    Is iCloud better?? If so, do you have to delete iTunes from your IPad
    before using it?? Just a newbie here...so hope I made sense. Thanks!

    It is not going to happen.
    At best you are going to be able to email the image file to yourself,
    or use the iCloud, PhotoStream sync using whatever plan your carrier
    has sold you, be it 3G or 4G LTE and eat the data costs. If you are out
    of cell range you are going to have to wait until come within cell
    service range, or you get to a WiFi hotspot.

    You are not going to be able to sync anything without making some sort
    of connection with any type of Cloud offering or photostream. There are
    several including, but not limited to iCloud, DropBox, PogoPlug, &
    Google's GDrive.
    ....but you need a connection, either physical with a cable, WiFi, or BlueTooth

    Not necessarily. There are other ways, but there is no point in
    complicating things too much. ...yet.
    For now this might be your best uncomplicated option.

    ....you need to have a signal to connect your iPad with iCloud. So if
    you are nowhere near a WiFi hotspot you would probably have to connect
    to the World with 3G/4G LTE with whatever data plan you might have with
    your carrier.

    Personally I don't bother with iCloud and PhotoStreaming as I don't use
    iPhoto as a primary catalog or image editor. I also have my own setup
    with PogoPlug, and also use the free offerings of DropBox and GDrive.

    I also use the "Photo Transfer App" to move photo-files both ways
    between Computer, iPhone, and/or iPad. The caveat here is, any devices
    involved in the transfer dialog must be on the same WiFi network.
