Nah, I know my luck. If I found one, it would create one of two situations.

1) I'd cancel my online order, go there, and they'd be out.
2) I'd keep my online order, go there, buy one, and by the time I come home Apple will have shipped my online order.

Simple solution:
Goto the Apple store, make sure they have them in stock, if they do just head over to the nearest Mac and cancel your online order at the store, head back over to the tills and hand over the cash ;)

The free option. Past experience has led me to believe that these big launch products get to US destinations as fast with free shipping as with the faster option.

Just wanted to say "prepared to ship" does not always mean its shipping. When I ordered iWork and iLife with in a day it said "prepared to ship" - but it did not leave Apple for another 2 days - even worse once FedEx got it they held on to it for two days (Im in San Diego and it shipped from just north of L.A. - usually that comes in less than one day).

So - moral of the story - "prepared to ship" means well, sometimes, nothing...

And I was very polite and joking with him, if you're gonna call don't be one of those customers.:rolleyes:

Defiantly dont have a fit it when talking to any customer service. You would be amazed at what kind words and a lighthearted attitude would give you.



Called apple and the lady was unable to confirm a ship date even with slightly pushing her i got the " It supposed to ship the 28th but well it could ship sooner " answer but checked back online and my order now says prepared for shipment. I was one of the later preorders on the 5th btw.

yeah, I just called and they said since it was "prepared for shipping" already they couldn't change the shipping, but they gave me a $15 off my next $100 purchase at the apple store, so I guess that's something. Hopefully it will ship soon though!

I like how, 24 hours ago, we were all stoked/fine with "ships by 28th," and thinking if we could have them BY the 28th, we'd be on top of the world.

Now we might have them on or before the 21st -- a week earlier! -- and everyone's furious. What a difference a day makes!

I say this being in the same boat as everyone else, having put the effort in to order instantly, etc. (worse - unable to get one from any of the half-dozen stores in the DC area). Even so, the world will go on turning.

What is going on is that Apple is telling you that they will ship it to you as soon as they can, at some point on or before the 28th. If you don't like that response, you are more than welcome to concel your order and buy it from an apple store ;)

Hmmmm I'd say the Apple stores won. In the past, pre-orders always arrived before general release to retail locations. Now that the retail locations are Apple owned, online customers are coming in at like 5th place.... that's how I feel. Apple should have let us know that they would be released earlier at least, then we could have NOT ordered online... F*&^^InG Pre-Order.

If you had your iPod Touch shipped with the expidited option you can now get that refunded by calling up the 1-800 #. I complained that I paid for the expidited shipping and now I can't even cancle the order b/c its ready for shipment. At least I avoid a trip to the store.
Also, nothing is going to be shipped before monday, according the rep on the phone.

Well I just got off the phone with an Apple rep and I explained to him about my iPod Touch switching to preparing to ship but it hadn't shipped yet and that I could go to a local Apple store and pick one up now. He was really no help so I asked to speak to a supervisor and he really didn't want me to talk to him but I said that I would like to. After talking to the supervisor and explaining that it was ridiculous that I ordered right after the Keynote but I could go into the store and pick one up today. He said that he could either email me a return shipping label or that if I would still want the online order that he could drop the price $50 for the 8gb and that it would be shipping this week. So I said that was great and Thanks so much for the help. :apple:
