Is Apple having problems with the iPod Touch or shipping probelms?

I ordered mine on Monday 15th October, and it still hasn't been shipped!

Why is the iPod Touch elegidly 7-10 days shipping and the other iPod's are just 24 hours?

Is there some sort of massive problem?

Thank you!:D

There is a big demand for iPod Touches, they will take a long time to ship.

Posted from my iPod Touch i've had for 2 weeks :D

Probably a couple reasons:

-Demand
-Hurricane in late Sept/early Oct - slowed shipping from China (backlog)
-Some kind of no-shipping holiday in China, also early Oct (also backlog)

And (my personal theory, but experience supports it):
-Apple retooled some or all of the production lines to correct the negative screen problem; as a result, production was at less than full capacity until recent weeks.

I also ordered a Touch on the 15th. On Monday the 22th, Apple changed the ship time to 5-7 days. I would guess that you and I will see our iPods ship by Friday.

Well, i ordered mine on Monday 15th and it still hasn't shipped... nothing has happened. I can't cancel... my Dad won't let me becasue it is on his account. People are just being messed around now and its so annoying... When am i going to get mine?!?!?

Some people who ordered theres at the beginning of October are only just getting theres.... its ridiculous... and irritating... i mean.. realitically... when am I going to get it... next year or something? Grrrrrrr:mad:

And whats worse is they haven't even given a proper reason....

And whats even worse than that is people like me have just walked in to shops and brought them.

But if they are fixing the screens then I suppose its worth the extra wait.

Hey OP, just to let you know my order is now Prepared for Shipment. I ordered a 16GB, don't know if that makes a difference. About people ordering at the beginning of October a just now getting their iPod, I have not heard of anyone being delayed that long unless they had to return it because of screen issues. I'm confident your iPod WILL ship very soon, Friday or Monday. Apple is, for the most part, very good about meeting their ship by dates.

Just One More Thing (ahh...Steve don't sue :)), on the 15th the ship time was 7-10 business days. Meaning that they have until Monday to ship your iPod. For more info see post above. ^^^

I ordered mine Oct. 14th and it shipped out on the 26th. Its in Quebec now (I live in Alberta) and it came from China, mine just got a notice: "Package Data Processed by Brokerage, Waiting for Clearance, Delivery Date Rescheduled." I'm not impressed, I guess that's customs for yeah. Ugh, I might see mine Monday, but I'm thinking more like Tuesday. I've never seen one of my Apple products get caught up in customs; then again I've never had it come all the way from China...
