    Morning, All,

    I'm one of those way, way down a Best Buy list. Well, I WAS way down the list--but the Best Buy in Bellevue, WA seemed to be getting regular shipments and, late last week, I reached number 2 in the queue for 32g wifis (yeah, like everyone else).

    That was on Thursday last. A week ago.

    Since then, not a single thing appears to have happened. It looks rather like they've received no shipments at all. This seems strange as, over the past 2 or 3 weeks, they've been getting in a minimum of 2 shipments a week. Then, suddenly, nothing--just as supply seems to be ramping up.

    Anyone experiencing anything similar with other Best Buys, or am I just subject to a curse?

    Cheers!

    Nope. I walked in to a local Best Buy and bought one off the shelf. No waiting and no wait list.

    Just keep checking the inventory tracker thread.

    Talk to the store manager. They make the key decisions!

    Well don't feel bad. I preordered my iPad on march 11th at 5:05pm at Best Buy on launch day. I still have yet to get the call.

    However, I got lucky one day and found the one I reserved at the Best Buy down the road from the one I reserved at. How ridiculous is that?

    Same here! I think they are either doing a bad job keeping up with reservations or they truly haven't gotten in any 32GB WiFi. I was originally planning to go with a WiFi only one, but I could never get them at my BB. they seemed to only be getting 3G versions, which in the end is what I purchased.

    this is one of the reasons I didn't pre-order, no lists, nothing. I'll get it when I get it.
    Actually, a guy working at Walmart is going to let me know when the iPad I want arrives.
    Until then, I'm not calling any other place or loosing any sleep over it.

    Similar story here. Got put on the list at 6:30pm march 11th and still haven't received a call. Lucky for me though I was able to snag one at my local radio shack last Tuesday.
