Post here the status of the shipping of your new iPod (if you bought one). Include the size, color, date ordered, and location.

I bought the 60 GB White bought on 10/13 and will be shipped to San Diego. The estimated date it will be delivered is 10/20. I'm so excited for this.

sorry if this is a really stupid question but where did you find the estimated delivery date?

I bought the 30GB iPod (Chose white after much debate) on 10/12 and will be shipped to Daytona Beach, FL.

Careful, I've heard that this is one of those internet scams where the poster goes around to all of the cities on the delivery date and steals the iPods when they are left on the doorstep!

To be on the safe side, everyone should post the credit card number they used to purchase also, just so we can understand if there are any bank-by-bank idiosyncracies. :D

I ordered a white 30 GB a couple hours after it was released. It is being shipped to Vancouver, and it says it will be shipped on or before October 24.

My friend ordered it a couple hours before me and his says it will ship by the 20th. :( Shouldn't have waited so long.

Did you order it from Apple? I've never had them take the money out of my account until it shipped! I'm suprised that they took your money while your ship time was still over a week away.

Ordered a few hours after the announcement. 60 gig black ipod. Estimated ship date 10/21 however the status went from just saying estimated shipping date to now saying "preparing to ship". Maybe sooner than the estimated day?

If you have a applestore near you and if they get it before you, you could buy it from them and then just return the yours when you get back. Thats what I did with my nano. (you may want to check to make sure its alright)

Wait a second here....Apple doesn't charge anything until an item ships. Therefore no money should have been taken out of your account, save perhaps a pre-authorization (which isn't money at all).

You may want to check with Apple and your bank on this.

It is 10/16 so 4 days after i ordered and the money has yet to show up in my account. I hear what people are saying about how the money should not leave my account but i promise you that as soon as i received my order i checked my account and the money was not there. I spoke with an Apple rep and they said that upon ordering the money is taken out as a pre-auth withdraw or whatever and that after canceling they send some sort of notification to my bank which tells them that the order was cancelled and that the money should go back in. This is kinda lame and after hearing from you guys that 1) the money should not have left my account until it shipped and 2)it should have returned instantly I'm a little more then frustrated i fear now i'm gonna have to wait an extra whole week before i receive it!! I will call my bank first thing tomorrow and inquire about what the deal is! If i can't spend that money on something else it better be going towards that new iPod meaning i should have an order in already!!!

Never never never use a checking account credit card for these type of transactions. You end up with exactly these types of problems because of the "pre-auth" transactions. Call your bank and have then clear the money back into your account, there is probably nothing that Apple can do at this point. You may also find that Apple canceled the transaction, but that signal never made it back to your back so the bank is doing what it's good at, holding your money hostage for some unknown period of time.

Ordered a black 30GB on 10/14, no engraving. Still says processing order and shipping on or before 10/25 to Baltimore, MD. I may check out the local apple store if they come in earlier.

Question: Can you return purchases from apple.com to a brick and mortar apple store?
