I thought tracking would make it easier to wait?

    We are all like parents waiting for the adoption to go through! I thought it would be easier with the tracking started but I am going crazy waiting for the next point. :( Still nothing new.:comingsoon:

    At least you have something to track. Waiting for the 3G is going to push me to therapy.

    LOL, just wait until Saturday. I am going to be looking out of the window for the UPS truck constantly (in between refreshing the tracking to make sure the UPS driver didn't get lazy and skip me).

    Just wait for all the heart attacks when some people check their tracking information on Saturday and it doesn't say "Out for delivery".

    You should be thankful your getting a saturday delivery. My UPS carrier here in the capital of California refuses to make Saturday deliveries,, so i gets to wait till Monday.. I'll be reading all your awesome unwrap stories and maybe whatch some UTube unwraps all the while i sit here balling my brains out.... :confused: I almost choose to do in store pick up but here i though I would help the green and conserve... yea right..... If any of you would like to trade my monday delivery for your saturday delivery.. I'll volunteer.. :D

    Have you tried calling the local UPS office to see if you can pick it up? If they are closed on Sat, maybe they will let you pick it up on Friday :)

    It puzzles me why Apple would only be using UPS when I was told several times by their reps that FedEx would also be delivering. I have yet to see one person post that their iPad is being delivered by FedEx. Also, if SJ wanted the launch to be April 3, I would think any carrier would deliver on time for such a large company--they would have been better off making the date April 1 or 2 and customers could have arranged to get their shipment (even if working) since they will have to do that anyway if the iPads do not arrive until the first of the week.:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    UPS is not listing delivery dates on the tracking orders for our iPads as they usually do for normal orders. I dont think they want to deal with some of us i-rates when we discover the real delivery date.... I think Apple should have announced delivery by April 5th rather then causing half of us getting all strung up.... :mad:

    UPS will NOT allow a pick up until the first attempt to deliver has been made and even then you have to call it in and wait until the next day to pick it up.

    Just chill....

    I have the same status, in China, with a weird note next to the status:

    THE SERVICE SELECTED IS NOT AVAILABLE TO THE DESTINATION ADDRESS / DOWNGRADED, FORWARDED TO CONSIGNEE, SELECTED SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE

    WTF does that mean????

    It means Saturday delivery is not available to your address.
