    David, CHILL. I do not think 4phun meant any harm or that we would not get our "precious" on Friday. I have preordered many items, from books, movies, games and such with a firm release date. The normal way it has worked in the past, and sure it will work the same now, the item is pre-staged at various locations. They are marked or assigned to the deliverer "DO NOT DELIVER BEFORE". Our 3G's are probably at Fedex or UPS or on their way there. You will not get a shipping indicator e-mail or show in Apple account as shipped. You probably won't see shipped until Thursday. You will see "being prepared", Tuesday or Wednesday, if not later today. You will probably get a shipped e-mail with tracking number on Thursday. Now take a deep breath and try and breath normal until Friday. :D

    Add my 2 cents to ICEPULSE! I totally agree with what he said!

    On another topic does anyone know will there be or is there another thread we can go to to get tips and tricks once we have our new toys? I DO NOT mean cool new APPS but real honest to goodness tips and tricks we discover so if others of us have questions we don't have to re-invent the wheel. I've already found a couple from various sites for the WiFi that will apply to the 3G that will save me some time and frustration.

    When I first hooked my WiFi up it did not take too long to sync to Itunes and then download the apps. If I remember, prob less than 15 min or so. I was so excited that it is all a blur. At least I get to do it again on the 30th. I am staying home all day!!!!

    PS
    Who assigns the labels under our user name - like "Ipad enthusiast" etc.?

    Add me to the list of incurably obsessive "where's-my-damn-iPad-shipping-notice-email" types! Couldn't wait any longer and after a 5 minute or so wait on the phone was told (by my new best friend "Vicky") that my order indeed will be fulfilled this week and confirmed delivery on Friday. Now maybe I can get some work done this week!! :D

    I am not positive, but I could swear that when I checked my account this morning, they had changed my status from Late April to NOT YET SHIPPED I don't think it means much, but I got to wondering if the bold letting was their way of telling me that it was not going to get to me any quicker by always checking up on it.:D

    "Late April" is the estimate and "Not Yet Shipped" is the status. They both appear in seperate areas on my screen.

    I have a 32GB Wi-Fi that I got on April 3rd that is going to my son on Friday (64GB Wifi + 3G). So I would be happy to answer any questions to help get first timers started. First and foremost, if you haven't done so already install or upgrade to iTunes 9.1 or you will have to wait for it to download on Friday. Apple servers may get slow just when you need them most. Download any apps you want now, again to avoid a possible logjam on Friday at the App store. If you are going to sync your iPad with the same iTunes library as your current ipod, ipod touch, or iphone realize that EVERYTHING in that library will get synced to the ipad if left to default. If you don't want that; carefully select what you want and don't want manually BEFORE you sync your iPad. You can always put anything that you may want back later. I did my WiFi on a totally separate machine (my son's). so it has the apps from his iPod touch as well as what we loaded for the iPad. A little strategic planning on your part will go a long way to not overload (11 screens of 20 plus 6 in the main app bar below) the iPad day one and keep you from having a long initial sync to do a lot of maintenance after the fact. The initial sync will take a while if you have lots of music, apps, video etc. from your other device(s). What will take even longer is the 1st backup of the ipad. And, be sure you have space for BOTH on the hard drive of the computer that you choose as the one that will have the iTunes you will be using. I hope that helps.
