    My parents let me order my iPad (16GB/WiFi) on friday from the Apple Online Store after I got in from school and then it was listed as shipped a few hours later. When I made my order, it told me that it would arrive next thursday but when I went to track my order I was surprised to see that it was now estimated to arrive TOMORROW. I am really, really over the moon, nothing can explain how excited I am, the only short coming is that I have to wait till christmas :mad: to open it, but still, I really can't wait. Wish me luck, and I'll tell you all if it arrives tomorrow! (UK time!) :apple:

    It is a very interesting device. I have the same one you're getting. I recommend the squish case.

    Have your parents check it out (even tho YOU can't have it until Christmas!) to make sure all is good so that it can be dealt with before you ever see it (if there's a problem!).
    How old are you, btw? Just curious how old kids are when they're really excited about iPads!

    I'm 14, I started with apple products when I was 11, suprisingly I started with an eMac rather than an iPod Nano/Shuffle (usually the first apple product kids get), I'm much better with technology and stuff than other kids my age. :D

    Ok, it hasn't arrived, I checked the UPS site and it still said it is on time for delivery today... What is the latest time (UK) that UPS deliver packages? :confused:

    iOS 4.2.1 Problems!

    Ok, here it goes. I received the iPad on monday night 6PM and my parents let me take it out the box to check it over, everything was great so I decided to plug it into iTunes and install iOS 4.2.1 everything went fine (download took an hour :/) but when it went to install the update, once it got to 'Preparing iPad' the iPad just shut off and froze on an apple screen and iTunes reported an "Error 21". I thought I broke it, seriously! but I tried to remedy it by using restore mode, DFU mode and various other ways of installing firmware and it just didn't work, I was stuck. But then I tried installing iOS 3.2.2 and... ERROR 21... but it just restarted and turned on like normal as if I never tried to install anything, it was in it's previous state, I was relieved! But it still refuses iOS 4.2.1 and I'm really missing out without those features, so will somebody please tell me why my iPad won't install the latest update? thanks :)

    Apple already has iPads with 4.2.1 out the door

    Happy I didn't have to do all the updating nonsense

    Enjoy OP :D

    Santa definitely punished you for being too impatient.

    Right, I fixed it, I reinstalled iTunes and the download didn't corrupt and the install went A-OK, I love the Multitasking, Printing and GameCenter.
    Anyway parents just put it away for good :/ oh well it is for christmas! :D

    Glad you got it worked out!
    Tell them to let you get in on some of the EA Games that are on sale for 99¢
