    Ive been stuck in iPad limbo (prepared for shipment) since about 5PM Sunday night and still nothing. I was excited when the change to prepared happened, but it obviously didnt mean anything. What's the deal? Anybody else's 16gb AT&T's ship out yet?

    I ordered at 4:11am est too, why did I wake up for nothing!?!?

    Rant over.

    I saw one person indicate that they had theirs shipped. But only that one.

    I have also been waiting to ship since early Monday morning. At first I thought that perhaps they lost a skid of them or something and put it in the wrong place so FedEx keeps missing the pickup, but since NO ONE has had theirs shipped except one guy (and 6-7 others who having been waiting like us), I think something else is going on. Not sure what, though.

    hmm, you ordered 6 hours and 12 minutes after me, but are already shipped

    ajg1977- how long were you in 'prepared for shipment' before it shipped?

    It's so frustrating!

    So I had a bet with a friend who ordered a 16gb wifi at the same exact time that mine would get here first. He received his this morning, luckily I ended up photoshopping someone else's fedex delivery info from another thread to show I received it yesterday and sent it to him after work accompanied with a pic from the unboxing thread. I won the case of beer but somehow I feel like i am really the loser, as he is sitting with his device in hand while I am "prepared to ship" for the 4th day in a row.

    I ordered at 12:45 am PST and it has been in PFS status since Sunday.

    I did receive a beautiful orange cover for it today though. I'm going to go around the house sticking it everywhere.

    About 8 hours I think, I guess after they're boxed and prepared they sit there until the next truck leaves for the FedEx shipping center.

    Ordered a White 16GB 3g at 12:42AM and just Today @ 10AM or so turned to PFS, hoping for it to leave today. My smartcover has been in Lantau Island limbo since Tue.

    My black one finally shipped yesterday after 2-3 days of prepared for shipment.
    My white one has now (earlier this morning) been "prepared for shipment."

    Finally.

    Ordered @ 12:48 AM PST on 3/11. PFS since noon 3/16. If part of 'prepared for shipping ' is really 'waiting for an airplane' then I would be neither surprised nor disappointed if some of Fedex's capacity has been temporarily diverted to help out the the Japan relief effort.

    If that was the case, wouldn't we have a tracking # already? My case got a tracking # 24 hrs before it was picked up by FedEx.

    Well, that's the question, are they counting Friday as the first business day? If so, the last day to ship them was today.

    I consider a business day to start at around 8 am, give or take a couple of hours. So I count that Friday. Unfortunately I'm sure Apple will claim that it doesn't count, but in my opinion they had the order before their business day, so they had all that day to start processing the order (which they did since the card was pre-authorized which in my opinion means the process began.)

    I have called a couple of times in the last couple of days. The person I spoke with yesterday blamed FedEx for their inability to pick up *MY* package since the weekend. The person today was honest and simply blamed themselves because they are swamped with orders. I was very nice, friendly and polite with her. I never asked for a freebie nor did I hint at wanting anything. She said that it should ship very very soon.

    However, if I don't wake up to a shipping notification, I will call, and while I won't raise hell, I will be firm and I WILL ask for some sort of compensation. I'm just afraid they'll claim that the 5th day is tomorrow, not today.

    It's just frustrating to see people that ordered the exact same model after me to already have theirs shipped.

    My black 16GB 3G ATT, which had been 'prepared to ship' since Sunday night, FINALLY SHIPPED today at 11am CST.

    My 16 GB wifi was delivered today but the 16GB ATT 3G just sat at 'prepared to ship' for 5 loooong days.

    I ordered both iPads before 1 am PDT (3-5 day ship range) on the 11th.

    Finally

    Finally my iPad 2 changed to shipped status!

    Ordered on March 11 1:13am PDT.
    White/WiFi+3G/AT&T/16GB

    It does say that because of the earthquake in Japan fedex has had problems.

    According to fedex I should receive it by March 23. Most likely it'll be sooner!

    Mar 17, 2011 6:07 PM Shipment information sent to FedEx
    Mar 18, 2011 5:05 AM Picked up
