    I don't live in a big city, but I'm not in a small town either. Helpful, right? lol

    Anyway, I'm with you on the FedEx thing... I don't have the option to pre-sign for it, because it was ordered for me as a gift and the person who ordered it didn't set up an account. I don't even have the link to pre-sign for it. I work from home, but like you said, what if I'm in the shower or the bathroom at the exact moment it's being delivered? Or if I am on the 2nd floor and the FedEx guy decides to deliver it to my BACK door which is basically 2 floors down by the garage (I live in a townhouse)? I'll never make it in time.

    Maybe I'll call Apple and see if they can email me a 'pre-sign" form?

    I would put a note on the door that 'I am home, do NOT leave without delivery", especially if I was in the shower or something that might not get me to the door in a timely manner... Might work, might not...

    There's not real pattern here. Just received notice on my April, 3rd order, but not on my March 13th order.

    The FedEx notice says delivery by 4:30pm

    This may not have anything to do with anything, but I had been checking the LOCAL SCAN TIME on my FedEx shipping notices for other things that had shipped from Apple and I found that if I changed the drop down menu to DESTINATION TIME sometimes it was different, and those things had been shipped from CHINA. On this wonderful shipment notice it stayed the same, so I am assuming my new toy has been sitting somewhere (that is at least in my same time zone) waiting on Apple to give the RELEASE word from "STEVE THE ALMIGHTY APPLE KING"! Just a thought in my attempt to figure out what they were up to.

    It doesn't hurt to try. I've done this and it HAS worked. It was just my luck my dogs had to go outside 1 minute before the truck arrived a few weeks ago. I left a sign on the door with my tracking number, the date and my sig and the driver waited the extra 10 seconds for me to get from my fenced in backyard to the front door (after running through the house like a madwoman, of course!).

    I have my wi-fi version and may get the 3G at a later date. Very excited for all of you waiting for your iPads! You will simply LOVE it!!!

    Just got the shipping notification from Apple. I was able to print out a pre authorization signature page to leave on the front door tomorrow. I plan to be home but just my luck I'll be on the phone and not hear the bell or step out for just a minute.

    I also need to be at the local Apple store to try and buy 2 more for my associates in Ireland who will be in town next week and want to be 2 of the first with the 3G over there........we have a corporate agreement with both AT&T and T-Mobile for wireless so they will be able to register them here in the USA.

    Cheers!
