So I ordered a new iPad2 (white 32GB Wifi 3G) last week. I was out of town when it was delivered to my house, so my roomies took it inside and put it in my room. Well they also threw some house party, and a bunch of our stuff got stolen, including the iPad and some jewelry and other small expensive things. Hoping we find this guy/gal. But if not, I was wondering is there ANY way I can get this iPad tracked by ANYBODY (police, apple, ANYONE!) even with it never being turned on or used. It was still in its shipping box, and still packed up in the iPad box sealed and never used.
Is there any way this can be tracked for me once turned on??? Please help this sucks!!

I don't see how it could be tracked if you never even took it out of the box and synced it with iTunes.
I think you may be out of luck.
Really? Apple cant/wont even track it using a serial number or anything??
Sounds like you need to invoice your flat mates.

The thing is, Apple does not play detective. They certainly have the devices serial number, as you have bought it online, but they won't go tracking the iPad.

Yes, I agree with my previous poster. Your mates should cover the cost, if you don't get your iPad back.
It certainly must have been a bad surprise for you, to have your iPad stolen.
Man, that sucks. A very unfortunate string of events. I would contact any and all insurance companies you can. Home owners, even your parents, to see if the policy will cover you away from home. Leave no insurance stone unturned. Did you buy it with an American Express card, they have buyer protection as well as some of the other credit cards.
