    Hi

    Ordered my 32fig wifi white at 12:01 am Friday morning and its been preparing to ship since Saturday morning. Tried ups and FedEx tracking info and looked up my items on apple product support page but no info is there.

    Is anyone else still waiting like I am?

    Thanks!

    Was in the same boat as you, find your serial number then use that for the reference number that can be found at your my profile on apples site, mine was shipped ups but it seems like most were shipped FedEx at least in the states

    Apple support page. But I tried that and it's not showing up there yet. My iPad must be shipping from within the US and not china. Usually when I order and it comes from china it would have shipped by now.

    Same here. Im pretty confident that if the orders ship from china, they are likely to be dispatched today, it usually takes around 3 days to ship orders from china to Europe/ US.

    Yep, ordered mine at same time and it stills says "Preparing for Shipping" with delivery expected by Nov. 2. Problem: I ordered one and the order was screwed up so I canceled and reordered. Apple has charged me for both and the canceled order is still showing up as being charged on my credit card. When will Apple remove/refund me for the canceled order?

    I wouldn't be too concerned, mine (UK) only changed to shipped this morning, but is on for delivery on Friday. Apple use UPS in the UK though, only ever had FedEx collect stuff that was going back.

    I'd like to know where on the support page you can find a list of your owned products too. I have gone down every link on the page and nowhere does it tell me what I have already. The best I found was a place to type in a serial number, which I don't have.

    By the way, I ordered at 12:03 PST, and I'm also still showing "preparing for shipment". I'm sure it will be here on time, but would just love to join in the fun of tracking.

    Mine is not even showing "Preparing". It still says "Processing". But the delivery date is 11/2, so I'm not worried (yet). I've tried all of the Tracking by Reference options plus have looked at support page, but it is no where to be found. I figure worse case, if my delivery gets delayed, I'll just head to my Apple Store Friday morning and stand in line. Then return the ordered unit when it arrives. Ironically my case is scheduled to be delivered this morning.

    *sigh* apparently someone hasn't read the preparing for shipment thread. They're being delivered by both UPS and FedEx... if you go to their pages and search by reference number, the billing phone number you have on file with Apple will bring up the order\tracking information. I'm willing to bet anyone who says "nothing came up" is just searching their phone number as a tracking number, not the REFERENCE NUMBER.. ugh. GO READ THE SHIPPING\ORDERING thread. Someone needs to delete this thread as it's VERY, VERY redundant.

    Yep. My guess is that with it already being Tuesday these things are not going to be shipping direct from China to US customers.

    Prepared for shipment here too. Mines started and been in Ontario, ca for a few days now. No updates at all yet. Shows delivers by 11/2 before 3pm. Used my iTunes account phone number on FedEx's track by reference.

    Mine does, despite it being shipped already.

    Then you're doing it wrong.

    I too ordered mine on Friday, It still says "Delivers 11/2", but is still "preparing to ship".

    I have tried searching on FedEx and UPS with my telephone number, order number, and serial number that I found on the support page. No go.

    I have been searching by clicking on "Track by Reference " on Fed Ex and UPS and have not gotten any information.

    Ups reports ">>>UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Verify your information and try again."

    FedEx Reports " No information for the following shipments has been received by our system yet. Please try again later or contact Customer Service." and then shows each reference I have put in.

    It may be redundant for you, but it isn't for those of us who are still showing "Preparing to ship" despite not being able to pull up tracking information via any reference.

    Sorry for the double post, but my order status just changed to shipped from preparing to ship(Standard overnight).

    I would suggest you check your status again. Looks like mine automagically changed at 2:00am Central (12am PST.)

    Looks like I just need to fill out the pre-sign and am good to go!

    Yeah, mine is still showing as Preparing to Ship and isn't showing up on either FedEx or UPS using the aforementioned trick. Kind of worried at this point.
