As I posted in another thread...

Ordered: Sept. 5, 12:29pm
16GB
Engraving: Yes
Shipped: No
(It's has been in "prepared for shipment" status since Friday afternoon [14th]).

I'm not sure how engraving is holding up shipping if it's been prepared for shipment for 4 days now, unless it isn't actually "prepared for shipment". Wishful thinking would be that they're double checking the quality of the screens and remedying the issue before they are shipped. Wishful thinking.

Ordered on the 5th with engraving. Still in prepared for shipping status.

Prepared for shipment since Thursday.

On a side note I am kinda pissed that I got it engraved after reading all of the bad screen reports....though as I have said in my 2 other posts (Horray to macrumors newbies!) it's still covered under warranty.

Ditto-- I just got that e-mail as well. Makes it sound like my order status was changed to "Prepared to Ship" a little prematurely last week. When I saw I had an e-mail for apple I was thinking "yeah! Shipment notice!"

An "about to ship" notice is sorta cruel at this point, haha. Just tell me when it's shipped, please.

Well it says "within 24hrs" so they should ship sometime tonight or early tomorrow (depending on where they are coming from..)

So it looks up for people wanting/needing friday/saturday delivery myself included! :P

Don't feel bad, I ordered mine on the 7th, (16gb, engraved) and mine hasn't shipped either. I can't believe they are shipping so out of order even within the US. Usually only Canada, UK and AU get screwed not the midwest (Ohio)

Im actually in Maitland, which isnt that far at all. I'm Shipping to a Busines Address and i requested Expidited shipping, maybe these factors helped in the delivery date. Also it says the service type is IP Direct Distribution, on the FEd EX website.

I'm in the same boat with business address and $10 expidited shipping and it didn't help me. Ohio, Maryland, Florida is should all be the same to FedEx anyway. At least mine still hasn't prepped so if I come across one in the stores I can cancel easily:D

I don't understand how they're preparing this shipments. Do they just pick the order number out of a hat or something??? You should have already received yours. I kind of want mine engraved and besides even if i did cancel i would have to wait till my credit card clears the charges to go get it at a store.

Good eye. Turns out it's the e-mail from apple estimating the 24th. The fed-ex page didn't have an estimated delivery date when I first checked it (or at least I didn't notice one after looking for it)-- but now says the 21st. Let's hope ;) My 160gb Classic arrives from Amazon on the 20th... it'll be a merry iPod weekend ;)

That's the other weird thing, it sounds like some people are having their cards charged well b4 shipping and others don't get charged until it just about ships.

My card hasn't been charged and my bank is super fast to post online, I can buy groceries and check my online account on my phone in the parking lot and it has already posted on my account.

well actually let me be a little more specific. they haven't charged my card yet. but i do have it as a pending charge. which means if i cancelled now and went to an apple store to buy one right away they wouldn't accept my credit card because of my pending charges.

Hey guys, I ordered mine on the 6th at 11:38 AM and its engraved and still says "not ready to be shipped." I called a bunch of times and someone gave me expedited shipping, so I guess that's something. Have to ship it to my house and then have my brother send it to my dorm room.... I used that argument and it worked haha.

Surprisingly I find Apple's engraving service to be fairly quick compared to anything else offered on the market... Of course the Touch is the new hot thing, so I'm sure you're not the only one who ordered it... The process should smooth out in a few weeks I'm sure.
