Deepest darkest Wales, close to swansea. The driver rang me at 8am to tell me what time he was coming as he was a bit delayed.

After using the wifi version for a while, I'm seriously tempted on upgrading to the LTE version. I dont even need a connection THAT often when I'm out and about, but it still would be nice.

For now, I'm going to see if connecting to The Cloud wifi hotspots thanks to the sky subcription is enough. If not, I might first try a Mifi. That way my laptop will also get internet.

I'm around 7 miles from Swansea, still waiting for my iPad 4 64gb white via UPS. The shipping said by end of the day.

When I ordered the iPhone 5 it said delivered by end of the day via UPS, and that came by around 3pm, so hopefully it won't be to long

Mine arrived a couple of hours ago. Was using my iPad 2, and there was a knock at the door and a DHL van outside so I knew what it was. I felt bad as the moment that door knock happened I literally ditched my iPad 2. Everything is set up on the new retina iPad now, and I've got to say, I love it! The speed is such a difference compared to the iPad 2, and the retina display is stunning!

Arrive at 3:03pm

iPad is flawless, screen is perfect, no dents, dust, scratches, dead pixels and the screen tint is even.

Very happy with it.

Received my ipad yesterday afternoon which I was over the moon about- until I opened the box and inspected the ipad.
Found 4-5 dents at the point where the screen meets the bezel and large scuff across the cellular black band. It's going back

Not to mention that today it is in the holiday sale with 51 off. I'm not impressed Apple, first my iphone 5 with scuff gate and now this. Going to return and get a replacement with the 51 off at least

----------

There is a pic of the scuff on the cellular band. Hard to see in the photo but there's also a large scuff/scratch in the aluminium back next to the camera. Not good enough brand new out of box. Hope the rest of you have better luck with your new toy

I also got mine yesterday and realised the smart case looked rather used all black marks along the lining ... And then I realised is could have saved 56 so I, going to bullring now as they said the stores have them in..time to queue up I guess .. As. Don't want to wait another few weeks for the engraving I had on the smart case especially if that's the reason the inside of it looks 2 months old own the first day

Hi all, just got back from the Apple store. Sending the replacement back and waiting for refund. Went into the store and picked up another ipad, got a 64GB for 608 which was good, also a smart case for 26 in the Holiday sale. Got home, ipad is in better condition but noticed a deep scratch next to the on/off switch, what a pain!! Going to keep this one and hope everything else Is ok on it. Still not 100% satisfied but I can't be back and forth getting replacements like this. I will reconsider apple purchases in the future though

That's just not cool I feel your pain..I think it's because we pay so much for these products 500 plus you expect nothing but perfection .. I say if you do decide to get it replaced is ask them to look inside the box first if they let you!
