Just wondering if anyone in the uk has had their ordered states changed? Or is it just the USA guys?

When do you think it will be available in store? If its going to be later than mid october I may as well order one. :)

Check your status again. I preordered as soon as the online store was up. I have just checked and the payment was failing due to them having the incorrect card number! Now the strange this is, this number was correct as they did the 99 hold on my card at the beginning of September! Something had gone wrong on Apple's side. I have now paid so waiting for the status to change :)

It should of only been a temp hold when you preorderd. They don't normally charge the card until ready for shipment

All I know is 99 went to apple and it never went back in :)

I'm in the UK and mine is now 'Prepped for Shipment' :D can't wait!

I ordered literally the second the store came up on September 1 at 6:36pm, so hopefully they should go out soon!

I think maybe my whinging on twitter pushed out quicker ;)

My local doesn't know either. The thing with apple is that only the big bosses know when items are ready and they would most likely be shipped overnight ready for stores on the morning of release.

I ordered on 1 Sept just after the keynote. Just had a shipped notification but with delivery expected 9 October. Not impressed!

I ordered some iPhone dock adapters at the same time (which are reported as having been shipped as well) but wonder if thats connected with the delay.

Seems a very long time for shipping and not in the spirit of "ships September"

Seems a very long time for shipping and not in the spirit of "ships September"

1.) Apple are taking the longest time it might take if customs hang onto it etc. I would expect mine to arrive before Friday this week.
2.) I think the wording "Ships in September" fits fine with the delivery being in October. The fact that is was "Ships in" not "Delivered in" made me think it would not arrive till early October from day one. Yes it is cleverly worded but anything cleverly worded hints at hiding something something I guess I pick up on as this is not my first pre-order of some new tech.

Finally it's not worth shouting that loud over at least it is not your replacement insulin pump or something more urgent :)

Your order will be delivered by carrier during business hours and a signature may be required.

Mine still in 'Not yet shipped' status, and as I posted earlier, I ordered on the 1st after the keynote.

And now I have the email telling me that my shipping has been upgraded. :confused:

I know it sounds a little childish, but I'm pretty peeved that people who ordered after me (several days after) are getting shipping notifications, when I'm not and ordered almost immediately after the Keynote. :mad:

Same boat as you - not yet shipped. I'm not annoyed (as it'll arrive when it arrives) I'm just a little confused. Maybe people who originally paid for priority shipping have had theirs shipped first? :confused: I have no idea.

Is this just a case of the UK store servers not being updated correctly?

They reuse tracking ID's so if you check using the ID apple give you before Apple have given the tag to TNT you get the older parcel. Check in a few hours and it should be correct :)

Nipz - you shouldn't worry about calling - just be sure to select international tracking. I tried my consignment number on domestic and got the same message.
The Apple Shipment Status for mine also says 4-5 working days for next updates - guess they are leaving it to us fan-boys to check the carrier every 10 minutes or so ;)

Just looked at TNT transit times estimate and a parcel picked up now they say would be at my home address by Oct 1st - so 2 days from HK to home!! Looks like Friday or Monday then!!!

Mines in the same crate as you guys by the looks of things, it arrived in HK at the same time.

Going by other stuff I have bought that came from HK we might just be getting these by Friday, I bought a radio once from HK on eBay and it came in 3 days.

Fingers crossed that is the case with this too.

It will be a plane cargo probably. A boat would be too slow other than for getting them to airports

wildoofsmeg
Sep 29, 2010, 08:27 AM
I'm quite sure TNT would be flying across rather than boating. God could you imagine the delay.

Also I have been checking the cargo flights hence the fact I know there was one yesterday and one tomorrow. In fact the next flight will be at 9:30 local time from HK which if I'm right should be in about 12 hors time at 2:30 our time. Then it will hit Liege and then put on another plane to I think to the east midlands, they seem to have a daily flight there using ICE741. You guys have any other ideas on how it might go down?

29 Sep 2010 02:13:00 SZ1 Shipment In Transit.
29 Sep 2010 01:54:32 SZ1 Shipment In Transit.

It is now 10pm in HK so its been on the move for over 12 hours, I would imagine that if it is on a plane then it will be hitting its European Depot pretty soon, then onto another plane bound for the UK Depot, then another plane over to Belfast.

I can see the ATV arriving at my doorstep sometime on Friday at this rate.

Well it takes around 12 hours to fly from HK to Amsterdam (without stopping) so that sounds about right. The ATV's bound for the UK will be separated from the rest and put onto another plane.

I expect that by around 10pm tonight we should see that our ATV's are in the UK Depot, with delivery more than likely Friday or even tomorrow for some of us.

From that I found on the TNT website the only TNT Cargo flight to Europe on 29th was to Liege AND the flight number 3V48. Since then I've been using the interweb to try and check if it has taken off (it hasn't) and when it might land (who knows?).

I see that you don't have a carrier tracking number but try tracking with the 10 digit reference number - hope that works for you!

They are saying Monday because thats what it says on the delivery estimate, if the delivery estimate was Friday they would STILL say Friday even it was going to be late.

TNT are just covering their backs.

It takes 10 hours (give or take) to get to Liege from HK, then another 2 hours to get to the UK, if the Plane leaves HK in the next few hours then the :apple:TV's could easily be in the UK by tomorrow afternoon.

Its 3 in the morning in HK so ewe still have time.

Well Initially when I checked this morning nothing had seemed to change and then I went looking at TNT's page to find this:

30 Sep 2010 09:00:16 Hong Kong Shipment In Transit.
30 Sep 2010 08:22:56 Hong Kong Shipment In Transit.
30 Sep 2010 00:18:30 Hong Kong Shipment In Transit.
29 Sep 2010 04:25:54 Hong Kong Shipment Received At Transit Point.
29 Sep 2010 02:13:00 SZ1 Shipment In Transit.
29 Sep 2010 02:01:24 SZ1 Shipment In Transit.

Seems mine went for a walk somewhere. Anyway from what I can tell according to the HK Airport website a TNT plane left there about 10 this morning (running 30 minutes late). http://www.hongkongairport.com/flightinfo/eng/cargo_dep.html
Just set the destination as Liege and see the result.

Now for some reason, trying to track this plane down is insane. It's not coming up on any of the normal sites but it must exist as it took off from HK this morning, sigh.

Anyway this should hit Liege maybe 7 local time so we can probably assume it will be in the uk late night/early morning, maybe just in time to make it to the main sorting place and off to local hubs for delivery. Keep them fingers crossed.

Ignore the top half that's an old delivery that TNT have not seen fit to clear off the system yet... yes they reuse tracking numbers... no they shouldn't or rather and a much longer wrapping interval..but it's not likely to change any time soon..

yours is the same as the rest of us... lost in China somewhere or shot trying to escape! :O

Mine is still showing in transit on 28th as well.

I cant knock TNT though, they delivered my iPad 24 hours before they were in the shops which was a pleasant surprise.

Seems mine went for a walk somewhere. Anyway from what I can tell according to the HK Airport website a TNT plane left there about 10 this morning (running 30 minutes late). http://www.hongkongairport.com/flightinfo/eng/cargo_dep.html
Just set the destination as Liege and see the result.

Now for some reason, trying to track this plane down is insane. It's not coming up on any of the normal sites but it must exist as it took off from HK this morning, sigh.

Anyway this should hit Liege maybe 7 local time so we can probably assume it will be in the uk late night/early morning, maybe just in time to make it to the main sorting place and off to local hubs for delivery. Keep them fingers crossed.


I know what you mean about trying to track this flight, i find 2 flight numbers 054 and 048. 054 seems to have departed according to the airport website above, but does not seem to exist according to flightstats.com.

flightstats.com shows flight 048 as probably being delayed.

Departure Status Details
Airport: (HKG) Hong Kong International Airport
City: Hong Kong, HK
Scheduled: 9:30 AM - Thu Sep 30, 2010
Local Time: 3:12 PM - Thu Sep 30, 2010
Departure Flight Notes
It is currently later at the departing airport than the expected departure time and the flight is not yet active. This may indicate a delay or cancellation. It may also be that the departure information is not available or has not reached one of our data sources yet.

Confusing isn't it?

Yup indeed it is. So as far as I can tell it took off just before 10 in HK and should hit liege about 7:30 but take into account the half hour delay and were looking at 8 in liege and 7 over here. We could be on for tomorrow you know.

I just had a look back at an older Apple order that come from HK, this too had a whole of a couple of days from the last HK update: see below:

Good question - my shipping is being done by TNT and I use the TNT International Tracking to get these details.
Date Time Location Status
29 Sep 2010 09:30:28 Hong Kong Shipment In Transit.
29 Sep 2010 04:26:16 Hong Kong Shipment Received At Transit Point.

From that I found on the TNT website the only TNT Cargo flight to Europe on 29th was to Liege AND the flight number 3V48. Since then I've been using the interweb to try and check if it has taken off (it hasn't) and when it might land (who knows?).

I see that you don't have a carrier tracking number but try tracking with the 10 digit reference number - hope that works for you!

Cheers, I tried that but it doesn't recognise the number. This morning it's still showing the same, I guess I won't get a TNT tracking number till the :apple:TV and the AE have joined each other in transit. Still don't see why that means mine gets delayed till the 12th though.

OK I think I have figured it out, as said the goods should arrive by about 7 tonight our time but it looks like the earliest plane to leave wont arrive in the uk until 3:35 am. You know, now that i have found that out, I don't expect to see it until monday. Sigh.

If they arrive in the UK tomorrow would there not be a possibility of a Saturday delivery? That is if TNT deliver on weekends

This thread has been an amusing distraction though! If you are out and about you can use this iOS app called Deliveries (http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/delivery-status-touch-package/id290986013?mt=8) (2.99) to track the location of your AppleTV (and most other orders that have tracking).

To pass on information I was told a page ago use the international TNT tracking page (use Google) and you will get real tracking info instead of please call. I think the UK one only starts working once the AppleTV has landed in the UK.

Paste your TNT tracking code into this website (http://www.tnt.com/webtracker/tracker.do?navigation=1&respLang=en&respCountry=au) and you will basically get the same info as the person on the phone :) They might have a small bit of extra info but that page will tell you where it is and if it is in your local depot. As mentioned before avoid the UK tracking page it is useless.

Looking at the tracking info I bet on Monday maybe Tuesday.

TNT do have more information internally - no bad news (like plane abducted by flying saucer) ever makes it through to the public domain.

I agree with the estimate though - Monday if we are lucky, Tuesday or later if not.

As with everyone else, mine has been shipped, but Apple status shows delayed and TNT shows no movement since HK on 28th.

I have just today received by email from Apple containing my 'Billing Document' which clearly states that the sum due has been paid by credit card. Strange thing is though that my card hasn't been charged yet!? Has anyone else noticed this?

Also I go away on Monday for 16 days, so if the damn thing doesn't arrive til Monday or later I will miss it grrrrrrr. How long will TNT hold an item for if it cannot be delivered - does anyone know?

I just called Apple; they are convinced that they have got the money from me, so as long as it doesn't delay delivery thats ok with me! Im sure it'll turn up on my credit card soon. But if it doesn't I'm not gonna complain!

TNT re-use old tracking numbers. As explained earlier in the thread, you can disregard the one that isn't correct.

TNT seem pretty rubbish really....wonder why Apple didn't pick anyone better? Or are they the only option?

Arnhem is only 2 hours from the UK TNT Hub, then it will be on a plane to Belfast for me or a lorry to the rest of you guys.

Took my eyes off it for a junk food, cheesy TV evening and Arnhem it is!!

Exactly the same.. There is a very slim chance it will be delivered tomorrow, typical that we get 2nd class.

But we get to pay more for the privilege, so that makes it better :o

Mines is showing Arnhem (Netherlands) now as well... wasn't about an hour ago. If this is the case, then expect delivery tomorrow.

i hope so! but i think what happens is, they go to northampton tomorrow, then the next day after that it should go out to the local depots. but because apple didn't pay for weekend delivery this will be on monday morning... i hope i'm wrong though!

Yeah I'm still in transit from HK myself. How long can it take, I mean that's way over 24 hours, what are TNT playing at?

Payment has also been taken from my account (it actually shows it came out yesterday), and I got a mail from Quidco this morning saying my order had started tracking with them for my cashback, which is nice as I'd forgotten I'd gone through Quidco:D

I've still not got a TNT tracking number, and my Apple Shipment Status is showing two different dates, estimated delivery date is the 12th, but current delivery status (In Transit to Customer - Shipment on Schedule) has the 4th. I guess that the re-furb AirPort Express I ordered has confused TNT, I'm a bit more hopeful for a Monday delivery now though.

Just had another update to say mine landed in Arnhem this morning. WooHoo it does look likely thats its going to be a Monday delivery. I ordered mine 2 days before a guy i work with and his still hasn't been shipped.........
