I was wondering for the people that ordered their ipads whether the wifi version or the 3G version, from the time you placed your order how many days was it before Apple "Actually" charged your card and your order status went from "Not yet shipped" to Preparing for shipment" and How many days did it take before you received a tracking number.

I'm just asking because I sold my ipad wifi version to get the 3g version. I ordered the 3g version Monday morning (early) and my status just states, "Not yet shipped"

So any input be appreciated.

Thanks

Please give me more APPLES!

I spoke to both Apple and MacMall yesterday. As of yesterday, the 3G iPad will ship on May 11, and you can expect to get it about 3-4 days later.

All new iPad 3G orders are delayed till mid May, so no prior experience will really help you here.

Well that sounds about right. My order states:

Ships: 5 - 7 business days
Delivers: May 11 - May 15

Mine also says delivers May 11 - May 15th. However the apple care protection says ships 24 hours delivers May 4 - 7 and it still says not shipped yet.

Do you get an email reply when the order gets shipped or do you have to keep logging in the apple store to check order status?

Making me nervous though. I've never owned anything Mac. I feel like a kid at X-mas time.

Wondering if they're even going to be able to get the ipad 3g's out this week since you can't find them anywhere.

I ordered my WiFi when I walked into the store. There wasn't any shipping involved they brought it right out and charged my CC on the spot. The whole ordeal took less than 10 minutes.

I ordered my 3G online last week. The Apple store still is giving me a May 14th to 17th window.

I know i was thinking the same thing! I have been calling the 3 apple stores in my area daily to see if they have them in stock, and of course they don't!

I guess time will tell this week!

I sure hope so! This is pre-occupying my mind wondering well the heck we'll get a shipping notice. I'm sure that's how all the other people were feeling when they had pre-ordered for the April 29th shipments.

I'm guessing that they'll probably start sending shipping notices either later tonight and/or tomorrow. Otherwise, I don't know how they'll meet the delivery May 11 - May 15 deadline.

I've been following another forum/thread about the same matter. And a lot of the people that ordered ipad 32GB were starting to get theirs shipped out Friday and Saturday. But I haven't saw or read anything that much about 16GB ipad's shipping. Apple might prepare a certain model for shipping then send out the shipping notices, then they prepare another model for shipping out those shipping notices and so forth.

So I got my fingers crossed

Please give me more APPLES!
