    When I heard they were shipping early I went to the online Apple Store and ordered one.

    That was 1am on the 21st. Today(22nd) at 10pm it changed to 'Prepared for Shipping'.

    How long did your status stay on that before you go the email it was shipped?

    This is my first ever iPod btw

    My First Post

    You have to be kidding me! I ordered my touch at 1:42 EST on the 7th and the status hasn't changed yet. My order number is W309XXXXX. Is there anyone who has the same order number as me who's touch has shipped?

    Apple has definitely dropped the ball on the whole preorder thing this time around.

    I had ordered mine on the 8th and it just turned to "Prepared for Shipment". I suspect that production is just ramping up know where they are able to start mass shipping.

    I was at Best Buy this afternoon and saw that they had 16 GB touch's in stock. So I bought one and canceled my Apple order.

    I pre-ordered mine minutes after good 'ol Stevo announced it. After about 3 days when people said they could go walk into an Apple Store and buy one I went crazy. Called Apple about 2 different times, and both times they told me "Why don't you just go to an Apple Store, sir?" And I don't know about you, but driving 2 hours to my nearest Apple Store didn't seem like that much of a pleasant outing on a Saturday. So I walked into a Best Buy on Sunday, picked one up, went over to some crappy Acer computer:rolleyes: and canceled my order. :D:apple:

    Others have posted that it was 'Prepared for Shipping' for as much as a week before shipping, so be glad it changed but don't get too excited. I preordered through Apple on the 7th at 6pm and my order status just changed yesterday, so you're already way ahead of the curve, maybe apple is starting to catch up now that they supposedly have the screen issue resolved.

    I pre-ordered mine from Apple the day after the iPod Touch was announced. My order says I will receive it in early October. This is the last time I preorder something from Apple

    I noticed a 'Sales Ref Number' has appeared on my order status page. is this a sign of progress?

    So I checked(online) if my Best Buy had them in stock before I ordered it from the Apple Store. Best Buy said they had 0, so ordered it from the online store.

    The next day I check the Best Buy site again, and they received the 16gig touches at my closest one. i immediately tried to cancel my order from the site, and could not. So I am stuck.

    Thankfully the next day the status changed from not shipped to prepared for shipping. Which gave me a little confidence.

    I just hope by tomorrow night it ships, and I get the email telling me so.

    btw - mine says it will be here by oct. 2nd - but i just don't see why it would sit and 'prepared for shipping' for more than 1 business day.

    Call them! They will most definitely be giving you some discounts, just be really upset about it.

    I'm hoping these delays are a sign that they're putting a hold on all week 37(defective screen) iPod touches. If this thing arrives with a crap screen and I have to drive all the way to an Apple store to replace it, I'm just going to demand a refund.
