I went to the UPS website and with the 'InfoNoticeNumber' that I typed in, I told them to hold the package at a nearby UPS facility. It says I can pick it up during limited hours on Saturday or Monday through Friday during normal hours. Of course I will be there shortly after they open on Saturday (tomorrow). I'm a little bit disappointed I won't be getting the new iPad on the day of release but assuming all goes well tomorrow, I'm sure I'll get over that quickly.
Mine arrived just a bit ago via Fed Ex and is almost done restoring (from an Ipad 1). I've gotten 2 Ipad 1s the same way with no issues.
Well even though I directed them to hold it at the UPS facility, I was home at 6:15pm and UPS delivered it to me then! Yes! I'm really glad I ordered mine online and even with engraving, I got it on the day of release!
I'll post a review after using it a few days.
I printed out the pre-sign form from apple, signed it and stuck it on my door. I'm home today but I did that anyways so the UPS guy doesn't knock once and run off with my package like they've done in the past!
Mine came today around 10 AM via FedEx. It was the first one to be delivered from his route. He said he had a lot more in the truck.
