    How do I know if and when Apple will be doing reservations for the 3G iPad? Do I just have to keep bugging them on the phone? :p

    My guess is when the 3G actually gets into stores.
    Think about it.

    That was for the WiFi version. There has not been confirmation either way in regards to the iPad 3G.

    I mean, the purpose of the in store reservation is to be notified that once stock arrives an iPad will be set aside for you. However, in order to do this iPad 3Gs must ship to the store, pre-orders get them first, then I would venture to guess the in store reservations will commence.

    No, in store reservations aren't online reservations. In store reservations can only be done in store. It is designed to let you go into any Apple store and reserve an iPad. When the iPads are back in stock you get an e-mail.

    HaHa nope. Here is what I posted in another thread.

    :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    What is wrong with people over this whole reservation process with the iPad 3G? LOL! I too am trying to lock in a reservation at my Apple Store for the 30th. The same thing I did for the launch of the iPad Wifi. You know that option that popped up on several locations of Apples website when the iPad was announced? CLICK HERE TO RESERVE iPad AT YOUR LOCAL APPLE STORE. Sorry for the CAPS but sheesh. It's like everyone has gone all Invasion of the Body Snatchers on this issue. The posters on this board. Apple Sore employees. Yeah, when I called to ask about reserving the iPad 3G they talked up their other reservation process. The one where I can "reserve" an iMac for purchase and schedule that purchase with a genius or salesperson. It's like no one remembered the giant lines at the iPad launch. One which was for Reserve customers and the other which wasn't.

    This has been very frustrating waiting for this answer but I think now that Apple has announced the official release date that we will know about possible reservations in the next day or two. At least I hope so anyway as I did not pre order online and do not wish to stand in line for the majority of a Friday afternoon.

    I ended up having to speak with 3 different employees at the Apple store, and the guy who seemed to have a clue says that the option to reserve a 3G ipad and pick up at the store will become available "SOON" on Apple's website.
