Balls!

Ordered 1st December with "Availability 2 weeks" and only just looked properly and now see the delivery date is 27th December. ie. no iPad for the wife's Christmas present!

Is there any chance of getting it before Christmas? If I call Apple can I upgrade to express shipping at this point? What's in store availability like (Black, 16Gb)? I could get to the Brent Cross Apple Store after work one night without too much hassle.

Well I hope so. Rang Apple and you can't upgrade the shipping - "we can't charge your card twice for the same order", hmmmm...

I'll keep my eye on John Lewis. Didn't realise they we so rare or I would have jumped on them straight away! Would be perfect as I could do click and collect from the Waitrose 2 min walk from my door and return it easily if the one from Apple showed up in time!

order on 15th Nov, shipped on 1st Dec, the website told me I should got it 11th Dec,but nothing happened. Call this Number today, and they told me due some reasons it delay, it may arrives on Friday, but they can't promise. What a .....The worst online shopping I had ever.

The abbott once or twice. My mate used to work there.

I'd rather get tossed off by bernard manning than go in millionaires/embassy/liquid/envy or any of its incarnations...... its getting turned into flats now, I think they should have turned it back into a cinema

I shall be venturing into town today to pick up an EE sim card for my iPad Mini. Could anyone comment on the signal they've received, particularly in the North West of England with EE? I use two Vodafone mobile phones at the minute and for the most of the time, it's good signal. It'll drop out at various parts on the M62 and M6, but that's about it. However I haven't been with Orange before but can I assume it'll provide excellent signal? So far as I know, they use the Orange and T-Mobile infrastructure to deliver their service, so I'm assuming it'll be great at the minute. That said, how is their 4G?

The Orange and T mobile networks have now combined to be called the EE network Orange and T mobile now share this network.

For 3G coverage it used to be a 2 horse race between Orange and 3 for data coverage. I've been on both and had a job where I would be travelling around the country every week, HQ was in the North West.

Now that the networks have combined to form EE, the coverage will only be better. In comparison to moving from Vidafone for data, you'll find the 3G coverage to be a major improvement. As for 4G coverage, that will depend on where you are and EE's roll out. Now that the 4G auctions have completed, you'll find that there will be a ramp up for 4G coverage.

You won't be disappointed with the 3G coverage, but have realistic expectations for 4G
