    Looking for those who have experienced being on the waitlist for iPad 3g. How long before you were notified it was in? I'm trying to decide if I should continue waiting, or, just order online? Thanks.

    I have been on the 16GB 3g list since last Friday and the 32GB list since Monday night. . .

    I was told you could only be on one list at a time... so essentially you just dropped your place on friday to monday.

    I was told by the Apple store employee that the waiting list was faster. But I got on the list for a 3G 64GB last friday, about 15 minutes after they ran out, and I still haven't gotten an email about it.

    I've been on the Whitehall, PA waiting list for the 32GB 3G since Monday with no updates. The iPad I ordered online April 20th will be here tomorrow.

    How to get on the Waiting List

    Forgive my ignorance, but how does one go about getting on the waiting list? Can it be done online or do I have to go to the store in person? Thanks.

    Go to an Apple store and request to go on the waiting list. It takes about 3 - 4 days. If you order online, it will takes at least a week. I was on the waiting list since Sat afternoon and got the email to pick up my iPad 3G on yesterday.

    The correct answer is both. Cancel or return the one that comes in last. Pretty simple.

    I've been on the wait list for the 64 GB 3G since Monday afternoon. I'm getting a little impatient but I don't think it will be too much longer. Hopefully by the weekend.

    Ok guys - what's your status today?

    I've been on the list for 32G 3G since Sunday. Nothing yet. Sadly, if I had ordered online, it should ship today, or so, right?

    How are you doing? Where are you? Again, I'm in Cary, NC, which includes Raleigh/Durham Apple Stores.....

    Been on the Waiting list here in S. Jersey since Friday at 6PM for a 64GB 3G.

    Told that we were probably the first ones on the list for the store. One week later still nothing.

    Last weekend, I made some calls to a couple semi-local BB's that have Apple stores. No luck. I know some people at one local BB and didn't get much hope that waiting for BB to get some would go well. Went to the local Apple store, they had WiFi's, but no 3G's. Didn't hear anything about a list, then again, I didn't ask.

    End of story, I ordered one. At the time, Apple said it would ship in 5 to 7 business days. Today is day 5. I'm hoping the pre-exiting May 7 ship deadline/backlog clears soon. I'm after all those...

    The race is on

    After carefully reviewing return policies, I've placed an online order to augment my "waitlist" order. Online order status says "Ships 5-7 days, Delivers:May 15-May21.

    If I end up with two, I suspect I'll have no problem unloading one of them!

    I was right! Got the email at 5PM this afternoon (Los Angeles) and went to pick it up. Everyone that walked into the store asking for ipads was told, "sorry, we are all sold out".
