    Ok, first off, I am not talking about befor March 16th. I am talking about before the date that apple said. For example, I ordered a Personalized Black 16GB. It says it will deliver on the 26th of March. So, could it be possible that I could get it before the 26th?

    A few iPads may slip before march 16th. There are just too many for one to not get by the fedex employees.

    What if Apple has not emailed us about the order being processed? What if we bought one that was personalized?

    If honey badgers intercept the package, you may never get the iPad at all.

    Calm down, Veruca Salt.

    I'm sure you'll get it on the right date. Apple has this thing down to a science.

    You are 14 and getting the newest iPad; reflect on how fortunate you are and be happy you are getting one at all. Just sayin...

    It is very rare that this happens. Apple gives FedEx specific instructions for these orders. FedEx is no stranger to how Apple products are released and aren't stupid when it comes to these. They aren't like K-Mart lol

    Yes, it is possible and probably even likely. Apple rarely misses the deliver by date and, since it is after launch, I think your chances of an early delivery are good.

    I waffled back and forth for too long, unable to decide that what I really wanted was a black 64gb AT&T.. by the time I got THAT order place I had a ship date of March 19th with a delivery date of March 26th. I too am hoping for some good news from :apple:
    I will be standing in the line on Friday to pick up my pre-order black AT&T 32gb with hopes that they'll have a 64 on hand for me to exchange up to.
    Good Luck to you!

    This thread would be an excellent example for a reading comprehension textbook. An incredible amount of replies that seemed to miss the first, important, point:

    "Ok, first off, I am not talking about befor March 16th."

    Well done to sparkhill, who seems to be the only person to have noticed.

    As it is, I would say that it is possible that you may get it earlier than that, but unlikely. I would just assume that it won't if I were you. That way you shouldn't be disappointed.
