    Yup, I bet most stores that normally carry the iPad will have some stock on Nov 2.
    How long it lasts will be another story....

    I called Best Buy today, and they said they were only getting the Mini Nov. 2nd. I was shocked, I traded that 3 back to BB thinking I only had 8 days to go iPadless. I asked if he knew when they were getting the iPad 4. He said Apple didn't tell them, but they did tell them they couldn't even take preorders. I also noticed they took a whole $50 off the iPad 3. Maybe they are holding iPad 4s until they get rid of those 3s.

    Maybe I should of just ordered from Apple Store or plan on heading out to the nearest Apple store a couple hours ago.

    That's a bummer...
    That's why I just ordered it......I knew I'd get one, no waiting in line, and it comes right to your door!

    Calledl again to Best Buy a min ago. They said they did get the 4 in this morning. I said, "The ipad 4, not the mini, 'cause you said you wouldn't be getting them in today?" She said, no, they have them, what did I want? I said a 32 white, and could you save it until tomorrow morning? She hemmed a little (the 16 they have much more of, the higher memory and white, a bit scarcer). But, bless her heart, she did. So I had a saved order on Apple, cancel that.

    At any rate, call Best Buy and they do have them, even if they told you they wouldn,t.

    Good for you!
    Enjoy it, I'm sure enjoying mine big time.

    Not surprised @ BB lack of knowledge concerning the iPads or anything else.
    Geez, You think they'd have a clue what they are getting in stock.

    my som works at BB AND in charge of selling the iGadgets as a manager. Sometimes you are too harsh on the worker bees. The worker bees at BB were totally caught off guard that iPad4 was coming out, and didn't know until 3 days later when they would get them o be able to offer as a product for sale. What one is NOT told from higher up, one cannot say. Cut some slack, and my son has a reputation that he is constantly requested by customers to help them only"because he knows what he's doing.". He was furious that they were not informed by anyone. Maybe the higher ups didn't even know. He really takes pride in trying to help! Give them a break!

    THANK YOU Wokiebear for posting your thread. Too often we only see the company and not the people who work there. It is very easy to criticize any company and forget that the people who work there do care and they work hard to stay there at least most of them.
