    The Lion download process I described previously worked as promised. No complications, no regrets.

    Sorry I got a email with some other message in it and thought I was replying to that.

     

    I got something like this.

     

    Sales Department told me this:

    "Yes you can buy Lion but there is no download code for the app store". They said they could ship it out to me if I wanted.

     

     

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I called 800-MYAPPLE this morning and was told that I could purchase OS X Lion and I would receive 2 emails: 1 confirming the order and a 2nd one with the redemption code to use in the Appstore.

     

    I placed the order wth the rep and within seconds received the 1st (confirmation) email. An hour went by & I never received the 2nd.

     

    I logged into my Apple ID account to check the status of the order, only to get a message saying I didn't have access to the order. (I have 2 Apple IDs: 1 that I've had for years in the form of username, the other in the form of username@email.com. The rep was supposed to use the former, but used the latter)

     

    I logged into the other Apple ID account and it shows the order, but says it shows:

    Available to ship:  1 - 3 business days

    Delivers  Nov 13 - Nov 15 via Standard Shipping

    Everything about that threw me off. I called Apple again & through a supervisor was explained:

     

    1. this type of order (OS X Lion) was unusual (which I find hard to believe, but even if it was, it should be an automated process)
    2. they (Apple) were "winding down Lion sales" (which is just made up talk by the supervisor, as they'll sell it until 10.9 comes out)
    3. orders for Lion were processed manually by a team, which would take up to 3 business days, but shouldn't take until 11/15
    4. The order couldn't be canceled, even if I wanted to

     

    I find it odd that a software purchase needs manually processing. Even more strange that the order would show as using "standard shipping," even it it was manually processed.

     

    I guess I'll see in a few days.
