    Well... I have two separate orders placed for iPads.

    the first order is for one 16gb iPad, when i ordered it (first day of presale) they preauthorized the amount on my card, but then the next week the charge was dropped.

    My second order, I placed a week ago, and it was for 2 16gb ipads.... They never preauthorized my card.

    A couple days ago, they ran the charge for my second order (the two ipads)

    But for my first order.... I still havent been charged?

    It's either

    a. They cancelled the first order.
    b. They will charge you.

    You will not get a free iPad. Sorry to rain on your parade.

    You're not getting anything free.

    You have clearly failed.

    I thought Apple was only allowing 2 ipads per person for this pre-sale. It seems to me that you tried to order one too many and they canceled one.

    Seems Apple is limiting 2 ipads for each person. Since your second order reaches the limit, I guess your first order is going to be cancelled

    Nope, I ordered the two orders under different names/addresses/billing

    No need to flame me... trying to figure it out. Obviously everyone else has been charged, and I havent

    Color me skeptical. If I am wrong and you are accurate, then you obviously are not a very honest person.

    2*If you live in the state of California, you will also be charged 9.75% sales tax. A $8 recycling charge will also be applied.

    Yay for California making things even more free'er.

    If you're convinced you beat the system, great. I'm sure it's gonna come back around and bite you, though.

    So, you're saying that this same thing happened before and you ended up with a free iPhone?
