    LOL, not bitter. Just predicting what's going to happen once the 3G's hit AT&T's network. :D

    Only logical, they can't handle all their iPhones imagine a device that eats 2x the resources and is all about being online with little other use.

    Remember wayyyyyyy back in the earlier days of dialup internet, when much of the online world subscribed to access through AOL? Steve Case and company dropped the per-hour pricing structure and went to 'unlimited' access for a set fee. In just a week or so, AOL was so overloaded that the service produced nothing but busy signals and that awful modem squeal trying to connect. Customers were furious. Class-action suits were brewing. AOL fixed the problem by expanding its network and once again providing reasonable service. I'm assuming that AT&T would have to do likewise if the sudden sign-on of 3G iPads overwhelms its service.

    Depending on where you're at ATT is already overwhelmed. I'm lucky, in Honolulu ATT is pretty solid. Every time I travel to the west coast (LA, San Fran, ...) I understand why a lot of these folks are pissed. Try sitting in LAX and see what good ATT's 3G is gonna do for you there. Felt like my iPhone was on a reeeeeeeally slow dial up connection.

    Not trying to start an argument or debate here, just need to point out that ATT is already having issues in some (not all) markets. 3G iPad is only going to make matters worse in those areas unless ATT steps it up.... Any if you in one of those "ATT sucks here" markets feel free to chime in ......

    Sorry but I just noticed this is veering off topic, my apologies in advance. I'll shut up now.

    AT&T needed to expand their network years ago, what makes you think they will start now? They stopped selling iPhones in ny because they couldn't handle the load...imagine once the ipads get switched on...

    Orders on 3-13 and 4-3. Both orders show as being reserved on my card - ie the available balance is $1800 less than the actual balance. It's been that way for 3 days. 2 nights ago my cards fraud alert group called to verify the charges.

    Kinda weird they haven't taken the money yet.

    I ordered on 3/12 too - the charges have been pending for about 3 days now - no phone calls, no charges have hit yet. I am getting nervous - I wish they would just take the money. I am soooo excited I may have to take next Friday off.....

    Question - are the directions for set up simple? I am new to Apple - should I take advantage of Applecare and call them to have me walk through everything? I am worried I will not manage downloading everything from itunes properly. On my itouch I have loads of music and several movies. I only want the photos on the ipad, I don't want to put my music on it. I hope it is simple to separate the tasks.

    Has ipad for Dummies come out yet???
    cheers everyone!
