You can try to cancel the pre-order. If you're successful, then you can just buy the album off iTunes. To try to cancel your pre-order--when you're in the iTunes Music Store, click on "account" in the upper right column--enter your password/etc. and then when the box opens there should be a pre-order section. See if you can cancel your order for this album. If you can, then just buy the album available in iTunes.
One word of caution--were you supposed to get anything special by pre-ordering the album? Extra tracks? Concert ticket preference? If you want these special favors/DON'T CANCEL YOUR PRE-ORDER--You won't be able to retrieve the special items if you do.
No--this is EXTREMELY RARE! There has to be a major problem with the bonus download!
I can't understand why Apple won't let you guys get the available download and then give you a "make good" for the bonus download--but...I'm not Apple, so all I can say is sorry and hang tight...if you get the bonus somg (that's not available any other way) then the wait is worth it!
Hmmm, I'll try to help...but I'm truly not someone "who knows what is going on and when it might be resolved".
However, you can always send feedback to Apple. To do this, when you're in iTunes click on the store, and then "Support" in the upper right-hand corner. When the support box opens, choose "Download Problems" from the middle of the page (unless you have a better idea!) and then scroll to the bottom of this page and use the email link to let "someone who knows what is going on" know what is going on!
Well I am having the same problem with the same CD. I emailed apple and got a personal response so here it is:
I understand that you have been unable to download your preorder of "T.I. vs. T.I.P." due to a message stating that the item is being modified. I apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you.
Apple is currently working toward a resolution for the issue you have reported. You will receive an email after the matter has been investigated and further information is available.
Thank you for your patience. Apple wants your iTunes experience to be as enjoyable as possible. Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July!

I've had no luck downloading the preordered album...but i did just get an email from apple, but it only stated the obvious solutions to starting the preordered download but did not address the fact that when we try to download we get the "purchase not currently available message"...

It's been 73 hours since I first tried to get the album. It went from not on the list, to 9, to 5, to 3, to now the No. 1 cd and I still do not have it. The bonus track had better be pretty good. Maybe I can get a live performance at my house?
Does anyone from the company read these threads? All I have gotten in response to email is canned crap responses that suggest they are not really on top of this one.
