Welcome America, welcome to 2009 from Australia where entering your IMEI on most carriers websites led to immediate unlocking via iTunes.
In 2011 we did away with iPhone locking altogether apart from a small number sold as PAYG.
When you activate it for the first time, IT ASKS YOU TO SET UP A PASSWORD and warns you if it isn't a strong one. I suggest when you get a new iPad you get a genius to help you set it up seeing as you seem to be incompetent. Either that or setting up the worst case scenario imaginable, a tool used by trolls for years.
The files are too big and take up too much room and time to write to disk. Apple has always done an excellent job with processing what the iPhone camera captures, always, since the first 2 megapixel cameras went up against 5 megapixel cameras from other manufacturers. The proof was in the file size of the results way back in 2007 and 2008.
