    I just got a call from my Credit Card company asking to verify a charge from apple. Seems like Apple is starting to charge for these.

    I do agree with that...we will not be getting them prior to the 30th. I don't know why this happens every time...it happened with the WiFi version plus every other product Apple ever sold, they do not come early, they arrive on the day Apple says they will. Some one...every time though...keeps hoping that they will get it early.

    Relax. We're just keeping up the momentum. A similar thread was going on for the wifi version even though everyone knew they we're going to get it "early"

    I generally track my cards online near daily anyway. Fraud is mess to clean up if it happens.

    I understand by the 30th means it will be in my hands BY the 30's and I am FINE with that but nothing wrong with a little hoping ;) 'by' doesn't mean 'on' the 30'th HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!:p

    debbie downers are so much fun!!! :D

    I can't tell what's what on my bank statement. I paid for my 64GB iPad plus every accessory under the sun with a 1000 dollar apple gift card and the remaining balance on my CC. Since I went ahead and bought a wifi iPad to hold me over in the meantime I've been purchasing apps videos songs etc. I see a variety of charges from apple online store and from apple iTunes store.

    I'm sure the charge is there somewhere . :confused:

    That's a long pending period. I know on both of mine the longest they will pend them is 5 days, usually 3; then it goes off. I called Apple today and they said they usually charge it when it ships so good luck guys.

    They didn't say "by the 30th" though...they said "on the 30th".
    Here is the quote from the press release...

    Apple® today announced that the Wi-Fi + 3G models of its magical iPad™ will be delivered to US customers who’ve pre-ordered on Friday, April 30, and will be available in Apple retail stores the same day starting at 5:00 p.m.

    Anyone else get an "We are unable to authorize your payment source" email?

    The initial purchase authorization went fine, so I don't understand what the issue could be, or why it would try and re-authorize today??? I've read that sometimes these emails go out accidentally, but I don't want my order getting cancelled!

    Any thoughts?

    Ok, my card's been charged for my iPad 3G.

    Not that there's any suspense now. Just watching for "prepared for shipment", etc., and then a package next Friday.

    You should call the credit card issuer and make sure the transaction goes through.

    Pending fell off several days ago ... watching the pennies

    There was a pending transaction. It fell off on Sunday. I have to continue to pretend the money is not there. :cool:

    Mine doesn't show anything as of yet. I preordered the first day it was available, but never had any temporary hold or anything. :(
