Called and received the same story that they have a lot of iPads to ship and they can't get it to me any quicker but when I pressed the issue they gave me a free Apple Smart Case "for my trouble" and now my iPad shows a delivery date of 11/19.

Hey, I was totally surprised about the credit also. She said that it would show up in 3-5 days on my card. I think her name was Diedra? This is my story, and I'm sticking to it. Its the truth, I have no need to lie about it.

I just changed the shipping address on my 64GB Verizon mini, and I had already received the smart cover that was a part of the order. The rep assured me that I would still receive it on the 21st.

Just got an email confirming the changed shipping address.

As to why people are getting different responses, maybe the management is different at the different call centers? I must have "lucked" out and got an "easy" phone rep.

Yes, I use the iPod touch with a MIFI device. VOIP works great. No contract and cost is way lower than Cell. If you need a lot of features then you must stick with cell. Eventually the market will shift to VOIP. Competition will drive it.
All cell features can be available on VOIP. Just a matter of someone doing it.

I've heard people with ipod touch's making calls over wifi this way. I'd be curious if it worked well over LTE. Could save some major $$ avoiding the voice plans.
It works great for me. I use the iPod touch with a MIFI ,and use Skype VOIP.
I have voice mail and an internet phone number. Save a ton of money.
As I mentioned in another post, if you need a lot of features it won't work for you until it becomes more mainstream and they start having all the cell features.

I have a Nov 23rd date for a 64gb iPad4 ATT.

I called them as well as my office (the shipping address) is closed the day after Thanksgiving.

They changed the shipping address to my house and credited me a free smart cover...

I didn't ask or mention the smart cover at all, they just did it.

I just called Apple, and asked them to upgrade me to next day shipping. My AT&T mini now shows a delivery date of Nov 16.:
"Available to ship: 5 business days
Delivers Nov 16 via Next Day Shipping"

I have no idea what will actually happen. Honestly, I suspect that they will ship them all the same method to arrive on the day that they appear in stores. They are going to be shipping millions of these all at once. All the previous launches have involved Apple shipping the product a bit early and having FedEx hold on to them so they don't arrive early.

I don't think that Apple will pay any attention at all to the shipping method listed in the store. Product launches are carefully planned, timed events that happen to a schedule. They don't really use standard FedEx services. They have special deals and, I would guess, plan in advance with FedEx so they know when to expect the fleet of airplanes with iPads.

That being said, if the mini is in stores before I get mine, I will attempt to buy one at a store and return the unopened box when mine comes in the mail. But I ain't waiting all night at the Apple Store.

I called the first time and they wouldn't change it (for the same reasons as others have stated). The second time I called, I did everything through the automated system until I asked for expedited delivery and then I was transferred to a live person who changed it to next day for delivery on the 16th.

Okay, so after calling people liars I take it back. I called again and I spoke to someone who said he could try to expedite my shipping but it could possibly cause the system to cancel my order but I said let's try it anyway. My new delivery date is November 16 (next day shipping). He said I shouldn't get charged for next day but if I do he made a note to remove that next day shipping charge. I wasn't offered a free Smart Cover though.

Wow, November 21st and 23rd are not mid November to me! Bummer. I had a November 23rd date and called and the best they could do in November 21st.

I will just go to a store and buy one if they have them first. Kind of silly for them to have them in the stores first as I am sure I am probably not ht eonly one doing this. Oh well.

I couldn't get bumped up to one day, but they bumped my date up to the 21st, I'm not complaining!



I am actually leaving for Spain, so I am glad to see this article. Thanks Apple!

Great forum, been following for several years.

After reading this thread, I called Apple to see if they could modify my shipping. they did change from Standard to Next Day. I had my credit card out to pay the difference but they said there was no cost. That surprised me...

What my status shows is:

iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular for Verizon 16GB - Black & Slate
Available to ship:* 5 business days
Delivers* Nov 16 via Next Day Shipping, before noon

People with clown-sized pockets should have no real problems with it.

I wonder if Apple has a system that offers different uplifts to shipping, etc based on factors such as dollar amounts of purchaes by a customer, etc.? I've bought several thousand dollars of Apple products over the past year (almost all for work, which then reimburses me) and maybe that amount gets plugged into some sort of formula?

I doubt it. I've done almost the same just in the past 2 months between iPhones & iPads for myself & family. I was finally able to get my shipping updated so I'm a happy camper.
