    "Package received after FedEx cutoff" Delivery date just went from Saturday the 16th to Tuesday the 19th. Oops.

    Though I find it interesting it was picked up AFTER it left the FedEX origin facility. Wait, what?

    I have always ordered my iPhones through AT&T, bought iPods in the store, and I buy my HP PCs off the shelf. I have little experience with ordering through Apple's website and conversly receiving items from China. Can someone share some light on what's up? I find it hard to believe a package being a couple hours late could delay it three DAYS! Or could this be one of those cases where it was scanned onto the plane before it was actually scanned into the system?

    I ordered Sept 28th and the ship date said Oct 18th. But they charged me and shipped it on Oct 8th.

    It would appear most of the posters of this thread ordered AFTER release. Since I live out in the "sticks", it was easier to order it from their website.

    Happened to me, too. Was set to arrive the 15th right after I received the shipping email this morning. Checked it again at lunch and, sure enough, pushed back to the 19th...and I was really looking forward to messing with it this weekend.

    Mine got shipped today.

    And to the person that said to pick one up at the store. I live in the Twin Cities and both Apple Stores are sold out by the time I get to them and the Best Buys do not have them in stock yet.

    I tried several days to get one from the stores. I got tired of waiting so I ordered mine.

    Mine is in Hong Kong now. Kinda sad that my toys get to go to the places I might be able to afford to go if I didn't keep buying toys.

    I have to drive 2 hrs to get to my apple store, so I would not go to the store unless I were guaranteed to walk out with the atv. Ordering online does suck, but preordering doesn't. I wish I would have preordered. I would be playing with it right now.

    I think if you look now, it has made it out of the People's "Republic" of China.

    available plentifully on Amazon, and ships quicker than Apple, and no tax for most.

    Ordered from Apple around 27th of September and it arrived 2 days ago. Originally it wasn't supposed to even ship until October 22. Sweet!

    Nope, just checked for someone and it is "Not in stock" on Amazon. This means that you would order from amazon, who would wait until they got it from apple, then amazon would ship to you. With shipping times coming down through apple you may as well just order directly. Mine's in Cleveland now. From Hong Kong to Cleveland in a few days isn't too bad.

    I think Apple and FedEx have been hit with "Scotty" syndrome. Apple told me it would take longer than it really would. And now, FedEx has done the same thing.

    After telling me I would get it Saturday (as in tomorrow), FedEx told me, "Oops, we messed up and can't get it to you until next week."

    It's out for delivery as we speak...

    It is now "Prepared for Shipment" so that has to be good right? :cool:
