    No Sunday deliveries. But possible they got a late Sat aft. delivery that will hit the floor today. Doubtful, but possible. Probably best to get on a list somewhere and stop wasting time hunting and pecking for random units to pop up.

    Sunday deliveries at Apple Stores?

    My Apple Store opens at 11 this lovely Sunday morning. Is it likely that they have received anything overnight? Many thanks.

    I wonder if units returned on Saturday might be sold on Sunday at any of these stores (Apple, Target, BB). Does anybody know how likely that might be? My local Apple store also opens at 11 am but I don't know if it's worth driving out there ore not. Any thoughts?

    From what I can tell, most Apple stores don't even sell iPad 2s. The ones I've been to don't seem to care if they're open box or not.:cool:

    might be nice to know if the apple stores will get them. someone on the east coast will know in a few minutes... but then it hit me.. with cell phones these days and no long distance. I can call florida for nothing and ask the apple stores... then i can predict for west coast. If no one finds out in the next few minutes, I will call and post here.

    They are such liars! I called 3 stores right when they opened asking if they received more shipment Saturday morning. I was told no. I went to 2 stores right at opening and I was told the same thing. I called again in the afternoon and I was told no new shipments. I called stores at 5pm and was told "We sold out of the shipment we received this morning" !!!!! :eek: I asked when did you receive shipment? They said this morning before the store opened.

    THAT MEANS I WAS LIED TO ON THE PHONE AND IN PERSON!!!! :mad:

    :D BB and Target have them, too, or so I hear. I figured since the OP started a thread about this, their phone lines must be out. :D

    I just called 3 Apple Stores. They said they do not receive any shipments on Sunday. They said to check back Monday.

    The Houston Apple store told me the same thing (no new shipments on Sundays). However, I thought that maybe either the open-box returns would be re-packaged (it only takes some shrink wrapping right?) OR the returns which were not opened might be put back into the system and re-sold. Not sure how likely and I don't want to drive out there for nothing but I'd appreciate any news from the east coast about this before my store opens in an hour and 15 minutes!

    This sucks so bad! Friday I waited in line 3 hours and by the time I got in store they only had 64G AT&T 3G in White. Not Black. I wanted Black. I went ahead and bought the White and on the way home opened it and HATED the white color. I returned it to the store 2 hours later. I thought I should be able to find a Black AT&T model Saturday. No such luck. :(

    Exactly! I called all of the Manhattan stores in the afternoon and asked "Did you receive any new stock of iPads today?" I was told flat out no! I called again towards the end of the day and was told "we received stock early this AM and sold out." So I was lied to on the phone and in person. I was at the 5 ave store at 9:30am and the 14th store at 10:30am.

    If iPad 2 doesn't beat Kinect as fast selling Consumer Electronic I would be shocked.

    The white looks cheap to me. It looks like it's framed in plastic. The Black in my opinion has a more classy look framed in glass.

    I wonder how much is lying and how much is just untrained and uninformed employees. With the way apple does their rollouts those of us on this site know more about it than the apple employees. I actually saw an employee quoted as saying he intentionally stays in the dark so that he can't tick apple off by giving wrong info. But on the other hand... they roll the items out and the employees know Jack! I get tired of asking for clarification on a single point and having an apple employee know less than me... come on, you should know the ipad 2 has a 3 axis gryroscope....or what accessories work and how... as well as stock levels and shipment in your own store.

    btw just called tampa store and they have a "very" limited supply.

    How sad is it that I have the phone number of every Apple Store in the NYC area saved in my iPhone address book? That's just straight pathetic! lol :p
