    The tracking info on UPS website said my package was at the local delivery center this am. I called UPS around 11 am to check on delivery status for today as my email from Apple said that it would be delivered today.UPS told me that it wouldn't be delivered until Monday, because the package had not been marked by Apple with "exception" for Saturday delivery. I called Apple, they said it was to be delivered Saturday and that mine was the first call concerning anything like this. I called back to UPS. They repeated the info that it would not deliver until Monday, because of the lack of "exception" by the shipper. Five minutes later, the UPS guy showed up at my front door with my package. I called UPS back. UPS said so sorry but didn't offer an explanation for the misinformation.

    DON'T GIVE UP!!

    My UPS tracking info showed it arriving at the Houston facility final destination scan at 8:45 local time today, and hasn't showed ANY follow up information. BUT, it got delivered at 11:00am!

    Reservations were only being taken for this morning and not for any other days. Apple stopped taking reservations a week ago. You can call the Apple store directly and ask if they have any advice for you: (212) 336-1440.

    That's your accessories, not your iPad. iPad's are delivering via UPS, accessories via FedEx.

  • 20. Shipping Problems in Tucson, AZ
    MaverickJV Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I am wondering how bad this problem is. My iPad was scheduled to be delivered today, but when I called UPS to confirm it was in-transit to my house, I was told that my iPad was scheduled for delivery on Monday, April 5.

    I called Apple and was re-assured that I my iPad was scheduled for delivery on April 3 and that I should be receiving it today, despite the news from UPS. My area is available for Saturday delivery and if it wasn't, the representative at Apple said I would have received an e-mail informing me of the delivery date change.

    This disparity of information between the two companies is concerning and definitely upsetting. Is anyone having this problem in Tucson, AZ or anywhere else? Would love to read about it.

    I called UPS and requested to pick up the item as soon as the iPad has reached the UPS facility. We will see if they allow it.

    Mine had a big orange Saturday Delivery sticker on it. Got here a little after 10 am.

    When I pre-ordered, the site said that Saturday delivery was not available in all areas, and it would be Monday if that were the case, so I was a little worried I might not in a UPS Saturday delivery area. Turns out I am.

    good luck everyone - it sure is a great device.

    Don't give up hope. My UPS tracking info showed my ipad was in Seattle. Mine just showed up at the door 10 minutes ago. I wouldn't trust the UPS tracking today.

    I hope you're right. It just seemed very odd for the package to go to San Antonio......Austin isn't that small (16th largest city) and usually packages here have Austin as their final destination on UPS' status page.

    Good luck to all that are still awaiting/waiting. I too was a bit upset when the status was not showing any out for delivery status, on arrival scan this morning. I called both local and international UPS and was told it was showing a delivery for Monday. I called the Apple Store number and was disappointed to find out all the person had was an obviously canned response.

    I was slumped on my couch and then there was a knocking on the door. It had arrived. So these special Apple shipments must be completely out of the normal chain/system for at least UPS. Sigh. Happy though.

    Hope every one else does get pleasantly surprised, without the intermediate aggravation

    Mine arrived 15 minutes ago.

    FedEx called 30 minutes ago to confirm that I'd be home to sign for the case I ordered at the same time and said it would be about 4 PM PDT.

    Mine is also here. Despite it arriving in Tampa this morning, it did make to my house by 2:30 pm.

    I had an interesting conversation awhile back with an Apple VP (after my custom-built Macbook Pro was stolen from the local FedEx facility prior to delivery), who told me that Apple uses various delivery services for different reasons, and the service you'll get depends on how that service performs in your general region of the US. Where I live, UPS is far more reliable than FedEx for weekend deliveries and delivery during bad weather and other crises, but Apple tends to send things out via FedEx. The veep said that in other parts of the country UPS was standard.

    I was rather surprised to note that my keyboard dock is coming from UPS. No word yet on which carrier will deliver my 3G iPad... Or when it will be shipping...
