    I just talked to store mngr bout iPad I got for pick up and was told online store over booked pickups. Basically they saying you can pick up today when actually they don't even have the inventory on hand. Damn apple WTF. I ordered 3:13am est got up at 6:00 am est wiped clean my iPad and gave away by 8:00 am. Now I'm hearing "we don't have your iPad"
    Apple get ur ish together PLS.


    Ok mgr said they have some that the boxes were dented and I can get one of those cause they won't sell it due to dented box.
    Come on apple.

    My online at 8:15 said Monday pickup. So, I went to store and bought one. Not a long line at Apple store. Done.

    Maybe not. I ordered at 3:06 NY time, and am still processing. I'm starting to think I'm not getting one today.

    Mine was smooth also. Ordered @ 2:01 CST and picked up at Memphis store @ 8:00am. Was out by 8:10am. Couldn't have gone easier.

    Yeah I figured might be an issue especially with the 128gb one I ordered from AT&T, so I just am having it shipped I can wait

    I walked in without an order and had one within 5 minutes. Easy breezy in the Chicago suburbs.

    Decided to sleep last night, no 3 am. Went to local Apple Store at 10:30 and no line, very relaxed. Two employees waited on me, one through sale, the second all through setup with cloud. 16 G Space gray, enjoying it. Just have to learn IOS 7, as I did not update software on my IPad 3.

    I ordered at 8:10 this morning. Was finally available for pick-up around 11:30. Went over, iPad was ready but Smart Cover was "still processing." Tried to cancel order and buy on-site, but it wouldn't let us cancel. They took my info down and said that eventually it would come out of processing, and they would mark it as picked up.

    The employee said that "the line in the back" (I guess them getting items ready for in-store pickup) was pretty backed up.

    All tmobile stores sold out fast this AM. Can't believe t-Mobile didn't think to order more given their great deal...

    Seems you're assuming TMO could have "ordered" more units from Apple if they wanted to?

    What makes you sure that it wasn't Apple who decided on the quantity to supply to TMO for launch day?
