    Package picked up Mar 21, 2011 6:24 PM in Shenzen, China. Now March 23rd and my package is still at origin (Shenzen) where I am told it is stuck in customs. I am very unhappy with the service and am souring on Apple (first experience and a bad one). Delivery date estimate of 3/25/2011, but that won't happen. Anyone else in a similar situation?

    Yup, my unit sat there from Saturday to Monday evening. The estimated del time was today and they did it. Got it at noon today. Just be patient and it will get there on time.

    You need to be patient ok Apple builds to order the hold up is nothing to do with Apple as customs can delay any shipment Apple carries minimum inventory in any country and that is regardless what you purchase. Fed ex will move it very fast once cleared

    I bet it will arrive on schedule. It's amazing what FedEx can do in a short period of time once the pkg gets going. Keep the faith!

    After a false alarm it is still in China at 7pm EST. No way it comes on the Estimated date.

    Shame on Apple for not giving people the option of expedited shipping (for us to pay for). This was not a good first experience with Apple, and I already know FedEx can be pure garbage. Next time I will go Android (as I have with my phone).

    Dude, chill out. You'll get it. Fedex is probably waiting for a plane load. They could get it by Friday with no problems.

    Someone on the IPad2 tracker site talked to a Fed EX rep about the delays in China. He said that they had suspended entering tracking info in China and he even called the office in China to confirm this fact. He said that deliveries would be on time even if the item appeared to be stalled in China. So...bear with them! Mine appeared to sit there 2 days also but has already left Anchorage.

    mark, no. I called their international package department and they told me the batch my item is in has not left China yet. Frikkin Apple wouldn't let me do an express delivery at my own express. Now my package is coming next week. Rubbish!:mad:

    Have fun dealing with "any" android tablet, I would have waited months for my IPad, remember that you are lucky to even have a ship date, so many people are having to wait to ship greater that 4-5 weeks.

    Take a chill pill! Seriously! Nothing in life is guaranteed and this is just another example. Patience is a virtue. Just be glad you are able to order and get the ipad2. If u wanted it so soon you should have stood in the long lines for hours like others did who just couldn't wait.
    Stop acting like a child throwing a tantrum. If this experience has made u that mad, just return ur ipad2 and get the b.s, android tablets that are out now n I promise you, you'd be crying even more then.,,lmao. A day or two late, come on now, you ain't gonna die without having the IpAd2 on scheduled delivery date. Geez..lol. Just saying.

    Not a good customer experience. Sorry but when I am spending nearly $1k I expect good service. This case it was pure crap. You guys don't like the message? Don't click the link.

    My attitude? If they don't like what I am saying then they don't have to click on my link. It is a free country, they can do what they want. There is no "attitude" in that fyi.

    Be careful. This is not a "free forum". It is a privately owned site ~ you do not have freedom of speech here.

    You post something public ~ folks have a right to comment ~ I don't think they were being rude ~ just telling you to chill and that patience is a virtue.

    Trust me ~

    I don't have patience either!

    If I want to vent then I vent. They don't like it they don't have to read it. Nobody is forcing them. Ban me if you so desire but I stand by what I said to the end.

    Today is March 23. Why not wait until March 25 before complaining?

    Mine was in China on March 18, but FedEx managed to deliver it to me the morning of March 21 - a full day ahead of schedule.

    Not that serious man, I'd probably be pissed if I paid that much also..lol. But the way you venting isn't gonna make it come any sooner. I see where u coMing from. No reason to get funny over this and ask to be banned. To much good stuff up here and I'm sure people would want to hear ur thoughts on ur ipad2, once u do receive it. My fault if my post came off wrong, I just meant in general. You have invested a lot into that purchase and I can now see where you are coming from. Hopefully it gets to you sooner than later. No hard feelings man. Not trying to get you worked up ;-)
