View Full Version : Education Order Delay

Wow, when we ordered 2 3G ipads via an educational institution on Apr 15 we were given a late April date like everybody else. I just logged I. To check the order status and now it is May 17. Why, oh why, Apple do you do that to education orders......

I called yesterday (April 30) because my pre-order from early April still said "Not Yet Shipped" and was assured that it was "scheduled to ship today." This morning, I got an email telling me that the iPad won't ship until May 17 and that the case won't ship until mid-June.
It's one thing to have the education customers be the last priority, but they could at least be up front about it. I'm much more likely to buy items retail and get reimbursed from now on, rather than wait at the back of the line and be lied to.
