    3/12/11 a day after launch i ordered two ipad 2 on phone with abt.com (the rep told me it will be shipped next week)

    i was changed for the full order amount the same day, now online it says back-ordered and if i call /email them they tell me they have no idea when we will get it in stock:( ...

    i want to know if some one else ordered with abt.com as well..what experience did they have?

    iPad 2 Order from ABT.com

    I ordered my 64GB ATT White from ABT on 3/11. Still getting the run around on when they will actually receive and ship the product. I even went so far as to try and contact a manager. All I wanted to know was have they received any ATT 64GB iPad 2s. They say they dont know what apple is sending them and that they continuously get shipments daily - but dont have any idea of what is being shipped to them.
    :confused: I dont see how they or apple are running this business.

    Yesterday, UPS came 5 minutes before I got home. Today, they 'attempted' the redelivery and apparently they came at 12:29pm when I did not hear anyone knock or ring the door bell. I called UPS and they said they'll attempt to redeliver on the same day but they failed to show up. I called again and asked them to hold for pickup but they said that they needed the authorization from Abt to have them hold for pick up. Fine, so I called... and they REFUSED to authorize UPS to hold for pick up. Maybe they should have told me before I ordered it. Last attempt on Monday........... and I hope UPS will knock or ring the door bell before slapping the notice on my door.

    Guys, I really have to recommend either B&H or MacConnection. Both seem to get more regular shipments. MacMall purchases also seem to be pretty successful.

    I would stay away from J&R and now it sounds like ABT, they just don't seem to be getting them. Plus both B&H and MacConnection have free shipping (MacConnection is free 2nd-Day Air). ABT Charges $15 I think.

    -J

    Don't you think a few extra $$ would be worth it if you got your iPad months before abt.com even got stock?? :confused:

    I would totally go with MacConnection too if they didn't charge sales tax for North Carolina! When I called MacConnection yesterday, they had in stock the ipad 2 32GB AT&T Black, exactly what I was looking for. But the sales tax charged would be a little more than the cost of a polyurethane Smart Cover, so I didn't order from MacConnection. :(

    I'm still waiting my order to be completed from J&R.

    If you're not in a state that MacConnection has business locations, they do seem to be a good one to get an iPad 2!
