    Ordered: 28 March. iPad 2 64gb black ATT 3G.
    Status: Order forwarded to vendor (Ingram Micro) 29 March. CC charged same date.
    As of today no changes in status.

    Call to drop ship CS rep revealed that "…to ship in May…" and that "…Ingram Micro has large backlog of unfilled orders…" AAFES no longer (as of 5 April) taking iPad 2 orders until availability improves.

    What is your experience?

    I ordered a 64gb black wifi on 15 March and it shipped on 21 April. No tracking available yet. AAFES CS keeps blaming world-wide demand and the tragedy in Japan despite the fact that Apple says Japan tragedy has not disrupted supply chain.

    Many AAFES orders shipped last week so yours shouldn't be too far behind. I don't know what carrier they ship with. I just hope they don't use FedEx Smartpost which takes forever.

    Good luck,
    Charlie

    My 64gb wifi black ordered on 15 March was delivered today by USPS Smartpost. It shipped from Jonestown, PA on 21 April and arrived in NJ today. The wait is finally over. For those that are still waiting for AAFES to deliver I hope your wait is almost over.

    Ordered 64G Black 3G ATT on 26 Mar. Still says Order forwarded to vendor. AAFES still gives me the same excuse, temporarily unavaiable....I doubt they even checked.... anyone order the same and get theirs?

    Not the same but I ordered mine March 12th and it shipped 21 April. They ship it hella slow too. It took 9 days to get from PA to IA so apobox.com could forward it to me in Okinawa. The whole process sucked and I will never order from AAFES again.
