I think it would be worse to know it's physically close. I checked my status after reading this thread, and it's still preparing to ship. And I don't care.Me either. You are just torturing yourself. Some are here in the USA already and others are on the other side of the world.
Funny you mention the security hold on the account. Mine actually got the security hold on my account on the 7th after I pre ordered the iPad. I did however call my bank to remove the hold. Since then, it moved from Processing items to preparing to ship. I would assume if there was a problem with the money, it wouldn't have gone to preparing to ship. Mines still stuck there.. lolMine went from 'Processing Items' to 'Preparing for Shipment' sometime today while I was at work.
I called my bank today and had then annotate in my account that I did authorize the $780 for Apple Online Sales. No way do I want to risk a kick back from my bank on such a large online draft to cause Apple to cancel my order. I recall last year several people had their orders canceled when it turned out to be because their bank/CC put a security hold on their account.
The future delivery request thing is so you don't get it early. They don't want people getting it early. It'll probably sit in Nashville for a few days then ship to your hub Thursday.Mine's sitting in Nashville which is usually only a day or two away from me, but it has that awful message about requesting future delivery.
Do you think it will stay in Nashville or will it go to the local hub and sit? I know a driver at the local one that might be able to help me out.
My was preparing to ship for more than 3 days. Finally "shipped" today, and it's PA already. It was clearly already stateside.The future delivery request thing is so you don't get it early.

I am wondering if this depends on the model ordered? Hubby ordered the black, 64G, AT&T device. I ordered the same, but in white. His shows as shipped, mine is still at "preparing to ship". orders were placed within 2 hours of the Keynote.Mine's also still Preparing for Shipment even though I ordered an hour or so after the announcement. It's been in Preparing for Shipment for 3 days now. I'm not worried though, I know it'll show up on Friday.
Only thing I'd be bummed about is if it manages to ship on Thursday and I'm at work
