You can go the FedEx website and it will give you the location where you can pick up your iPad. I do think that one Deleivery attempt MUST be made before it is available for pickup. So you would not be able to get hold of your new toy until later that night AFYER the truck returned to the hub or the next working day.I live in West LA, but I wanna pick it up at the shipping facility since I will be at work afternoon. Does anyone know the address and when the earliest time for pickup is?
You paid for a preorder of a product. They charged your card because it shipped. When you bought it, it said delivers on March 16th, and by ordering it you accepted that.
Because it is their company's policy to release a product at a certain date, and they wanna stick to that to be fair to everybody. I dont think anybody has any ground to complain about not getting it earlier because the release date was clearly stated on the order page.
Well they didn't really charge you yet. The amount was only pre authorize and it will be back on you account in a couple of days. They don't take the money until it actually ships.
You would be surprised. I usually can get packages early if you build a relationship and spend a little cash.I don't think any FedEx employee is willing to lose their job for you to have your iPad a week early. Just saying.
Yeah I'm not sure why some assumed I wanna pick it up early since its not stated anywhere in my post. I would pick it up Fri morning of corse.You would be surprised. I usually can get packages early if you build a relationship and spend a little cash.
I think he was asking on release day though.
Not true. Mine has been shipped and the hold was removed from my card and I have yet to be charged. I believe people will be charged Thursday or Friday.Well they didn't really charge you yet.

That's the problem. They say pickup would be the day "after" the originally scheduled date.Below is from a pop up window from a link on the FedEx tracking page. I have only used this service when an attempt had already been made, so I don't know if the procedure here is the same. In my case, I could select which office, including FedEx Office (Kinkos), where I wanted it delivered.
BTW - My 64 GB Black AT&T was picked up 6/10 and according to the scans is at the FedEx distribution facility in Ontario, CA
Hold at FedEx Location
Not all shipments are eligible for this option.
Only the shipper, recipient or payor of the shipping transaction may make a Hold at FedEx Location request.
FedEx does not guarantee that the request can be fulfilled.
If your shipment is eligible, FedEx Express will attempt to have your shipment available for pickup by the next business day after the estimated delivery date.
Government issued photo I.D. is required for shipment pickup.
Ability to request a Hold at FedEx Location via fedex.com is available for U.S. destined shipments only.
That is the case, but it might be possible to finesse it dealing with the particular FedEx office that might be holding it prior to distribution day. It could be taking a chance that it would end up getting delayed. If you can get the phone number of the local office, you can ask them if it is possible to get the package while it is being held, or if they are holding prior to the distribution day, could they deliver it on time instead of late. The reason they normally say redirecting it would delay by a day is the package is normally not being held at that office prior to the delivery date. Situation might be different here.That's the problem. They say pickup would be the day "after" the originally scheduled date.
It's really simple: The pre-order page told you when to expect the delivery, which was the 16th. There's no need to make it any more complicated than that...My card was charged alredy and the product has already shipped. If they didn't want us to have it early then they shouldn't of shipped it so soon and charged my card so soon.
