    So I ordered yesterday a 32Gb and 16Gb for my dad from the iStore and now a few minutes ago I get a email that they have canceled my order.

    The reason: To ensure that all customers are given equal opportunity to acquire this product they have limited the amount per customer.

    I think this is total BS.

    Have any of you had this problem and how have you resolved it?

    Maybe you should have gave two addresses and two name so the registration would be a lot better for you.

    I wouldn't have thought two is unreasonable. When preordering was made available in the UK you were able to order two per address. I ordered one from the Apple store and bought another from PC World.

    If you don't me saying jimt29, a rather abusive reply:(

    Why is he being selfiesh? They arent both for him. Limiting it to 1 per household seems a bit of a silly idea.

    I ordered two from the Apple online store and they were delivered with no problems. Must be the individual store.

    Perhaps they already had your address.
    These two would have made 3 (checks fingers)......knew they had a policy from the start limiting the number we could buy individually.

    I ordered my iPad on Wednesday, it is on back-order because of the shortage of LCD displays from LG. I might receive it by mid August.

    I think is is perfectly fair for Apple to limit "one per customer" during this shortage to give everyone a chance to get one.

    believe it or not, it's up to them to decide who they sell them too. The don't have to sell them after all.

    I guess that availability is predicated upon your geographical location
