    I think you're right. I went to BB and they are out.

    They're all inaccurate and even if they have them in stock they are all for pre-orders.

    No glitches, Apple is not sending enough ipads to BB or probably their other retailers to even take care of pre orders, reservations, etc. Our local BB only gets 5-10 at a time and has been since launch day.

    Which store & Model?

    You could try this option...

    Send me the store you see the model you want and what model it is, i'll adjust this url to reflect the store ID, part# and sku# - you could potentially then use a referral point site for Best Buy to get points on the purchase... (no promises since you are pasting this URL in...)

    I had problems in I.E. pasting this really long URL in the address bar - it worked in Google Chrome - you can also just take the url, open notepad or text editor - paste it into the file and do:

    Code:
    <a href="<The HTML Below>">Link</a>
    open this html you create in I.E. and click it to add the item to your cart...

    i.e. try this link out:

    Code:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=4435195691401564249&sourcePageURL=%2Fsite%2FApple%2526%2523174%253B%2B-%2BiPad%2526%2523174%253B%2B2%2Bwith%2BWi-Fi%2B%252B%2B3G%2B-%2B64GB%2B%28Verizon%2BWireless%29%2B-%2BWhite%2F2340557.p%3Fid%3D1218323076967%26skuId%3D2340557&listingType=&currentLink=&%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.cancelURL=%2Fsite%2FApple%2526%2523174%253B%2B-%2BiPad%2526%2523174%253B%2B2%2Bwith%2BWi-Fi%2B%252B%2B3G%2B-%2B64GB%2B%28Verizon%2BWireless%29%2B-%2BWhite%2F2340557.p%3Fid%3D1218323076967%26skuId%3D2340557&_D%3A%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.cancelURL=+&%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.refreshURL=olspage.jsp%3Fid%3Dpcat17006%26type%3Dpage%26skuId%3D2340557%26searchpage%3Dtrue&_D%3A%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.refreshURL=+&%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.dispatcher=&_D%3A%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.dispatcher=+&%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.successURL=%2Fsite%2FApple%2526%2523174%253B%2B-%2BiPad%2526%2523174%253B%2B2%2Bwith%2BWi-Fi%2B%252B%2B3G%2B-%2B64GB%2B%28Verizon%2BWireless%29%2B-%2BWhite%2F2340557.p%3Fid%3D1218323076967%26skuId%3D2340557&_D%3A%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.successURL=+&TxtZipCode=60202&_D%3ATxtZipCode=+&TxtCity=&_D%3ATxtCity=+&_D%3ADrpState=+&DrpState=&_D%3A%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.storeSearch=+&warehouseAtpCall=true&%2Fatg%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2FShoppingCartModifier.addItemToOrderSuccessURL=olspage.jsp%3Fid%3Dpcat17005%26type%3Dpage&_D%3A%2Fatg%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2FShoppingCartModifier.addItemToOrderSuccessURL=+&%2Fatg%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2FShoppingCartModifier.addItemToOrderErrorURL=olspage.jsp%3Fid%3Dpcat17005%26type%3Dpage&_D%3A%2Fatg%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2FShoppingCartModifier.addItemToOrderErrorURL=+&%2Fatg%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2FShoppingCartModifier.currPageURL=olspage.jsp%3Fid%3Dpcat17006%26type%3Dpage%26skuId%3D2340557&_D%3A%2Fatg%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2FShoppingCartModifier.currPageURL=+&%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.currPageURL=olspage.jsp%3Fid%3Dpcat17006%26type%3Dpage%26skuId%3D2340557&_D%3A%2Fbestbuy%2Fdigiterra%2Fcommerce%2Forder%2Fformhandler%2FCartQuickStoresFormHandler.currPageURL=+&callType=&productId=1218323076967&tempCatalogRefId=2340557&2340557=1&313addtocart.x=53&313addtocart.y=12&_D%3A313addtocart=+&_DSV%3A313addtocart=313&_DARGS=%2Fsite%2Fen_US%2Fcheckout%2Folsprecartcheckavailabilityform.jsp
    It will add a 64-bit Verizon from a Chicago store that shows availability into a cart... No guarantees it will actually be there to pick up (in which case you cancel your order) - I am just really curious if you buy it online through Best Buy if this works :)

    I have noticed on more than one occasion that in the middle of the night, Best Buy will report items in stock that were not there the night before and are out of stock the next morning.
