    I bought 16Gb ipad and i think my bank charged me £350 with charges for buying in US Dollars. Bundle box will charge £120 approx for vat (that has to be paid and shipping in 3 days.
    I know it is a little expensive but i really want an ipad and the extra expense is worth it.
    I have a feeling UK ipads will be delayed untill the US ipad orders have settled down. Once orders start shipping and people get their ipads i think more people will order in the US and Apple will look after them first.

    Good luck

    1) I am trying to buy the 16GB WiFi version and the iPad dock together. Will these be sent as a single package because they have different ship by date? I don't want to incur two different postal charges. If not sure, I will just order the iPad.

    2) On the items cart page, do I have to enter the ZIP? This usually adds to the total price. Or do I simply leave the zip out since it needs to be entered on the address form page (the next page).

    3) What is the area code and primary phone number. The full number I am getting from Bundle Box is 502-961-9303

    When I enter the area code, which bit of the phone number above is the area code and do I leave out the dashes when I enter the numbers?

    4) Also, do I tick the box where it says 'this is a business address'?

    I'll await your response before I order it.

    By the way, how much do you reckon the iPad is likely to be priced in the UK? I read somewhere they will directly swap dollars for pounds, so the 16GB version will cost £500 since it is costing $500 in the US rather than the equivalent in currency conversion.

    Thanks

    I put the billing address the same as the billing address. You must tell your bank you are making the transaction or they will decline it when you submit bill.

    Best Buy is in Canada too. There are two stores in a 20 mile radius from where I live. I don't even know that they'd sell the iPad but anyway I'm sure that they'd honor an Apple request not to sell iPads before Canadian Apple stores anyway...

    I think it's time for you to plan a trip in the States. And pay cash!:p
