Get this every time I tap on the order number in my confirmation email. See quite a few order issues today but not this one. On a 2-3 week estimated delivery.

Anyone else?

If this is an Apple order try clicking on the order number in your confirmation email. You should see a "link to account" button when it takes you to the web page. Click on that and log into your Apple account and you should be OK.

Same here. And my amex card was charged instantly after i ordered at 3:09am or so. I thought it was usually charged when it was shipped.

It is. When you place your order Apple (or any other company) gets an authorization. That is what the "pending" charge is on your cc acct. But that is not a charge just a hold on those funds. The company still has to submit the charge or the pending will be removed in a few days. So if your X is not immediately shipping Apple will do another authorization when it ships which will result in a charge.

This might help. Delete the iOS Apple Store app. Go to the Apple Store website from safari, login. Once logged into Click on Find your Order and input the Order number to Link your account. Once this is done, you can redownload the iOS app and all should display fine with push notifications as shipping starts!
