    I did! Just happened to have insomnia last night, and my eyes popped out of my head when I saw them available for order. Placed my order by 2:30am CST, got a 32g and a 16g, both Verizon. Here's hoping for a quick delivery!

    Just for fun, I also went to my local Best Buy and Verizon stores this morning around 9am, and was met with nothing more than blank stares.

    Ordered at about 02:05 CST.

    Glad I stayed up. Was so close to just getting an iPad Air with my Target GC but now I'll just sell the GC instead.

    Space Gray 32GB LTE. With black Smart Cover.

    I am kinda on a budget and couldn't justify spending close to $800 on a device. I wanted to stay under $500 out of pocket (selling my $200 Target GC) and the 32GB LTE with a case came just over that figure, after taxes.

    Yes sir! Also ordered a Product RED smart case... A bit expensive but hopefully it will be more durable than the iPhone case was...

    Yes!! A 32 silver LTE for me and 2 32 wifi for my kids! So glad we will have them for Christmas!


    In the past two months... I have been going crazy the amount of space on my oldest's mini. I am always deleting and putting different things in it for him.

    I currently have a 16gb 1st gen mini and have run out of space. Grabbed the 32gb this time around.

    1-3 days but not being delivered till 20-22 why

    I was so surprised to see them available online. I was so excited I ordered a 32GB it had dispatch 1-3 business days but then when I completed the order it then said delivery date 20-22. That's over a week away, I could not cancel because within seconds it went to preparing for dispatch. I rang the help line and they said there was nothing they could do and that it was being shipped straight from the suppliers in china. I have also found out my local store has availability for reserved pick up. Not fair why did I not see that, I only live a few miles from our local store. If I knew it was being shipped from the other side of the world I would not have ordered it I would have waited till I finish work to pick one up. I know I could just get another and send it back when it arrives but that means more money and I haven't got a spare £400. I want to complain but can't find anyone to email. Does anyone know a email I can send a complaint to?? :mad::mad::mad:

    bahhh don't tell me this!!! haha I have a 16gb 5s and its more then enough. I don't keep much on it in terms of media (3-4gb music) always take my pics/vids off.

    Have Xfinity TV. So i figured I would be fine. Maybe get some NAS.

    Or ill see if i can hunt down a 32gb in stores tonight.

    i bought an air last week thinking it was the right choice for me, but i ordered a mini on impulse when they went on sale last night. cancel the mini order and keep the air, or return the air and keep the mini?

    Wait for the mini to arrive, use them both for a day or two, make up your mind then.

    I envy you people without the need for LTE and have models prepping for shipment already.

    I ordered my Mini, white wifi 64gb today with in store pickup as they became available in Las Vegas sometime after Noon PST.

    I'm gonna rock both my Mini and Air for a while and make a determination of keeping both or returning one. Can't decide until I've used both. My Air is 128gb though, so I may wanna just keep both!

    Ordered online and picked it up at the local Apple retail store. Very nice! Best iPad yet! Will replace my original iPad Mini and I like it better than my wife's iPad Air.
