    I ordered a refurbished iPad last Thursday (12/27) and it shipped this past Wednesday (1/2). It has been stuck in Hong Kong for a few days, went back to China, back to Hong Kong, and now it is at a different location in Hong Kong. My original arrival date was this coming Monday (1/7), but it changed today to Tuesday (1/8). It is currently "in transit" in Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong. Should I be concerned that it has been in Hong Kong for so long? Why should it stay there for such a long time? And, since it says "in transit" right now, does that mean it's finally on its way to the US?

    Thanks!

    You should never buy from Hong Kong if you are looking to get it immediately. Last order i placed coming from Hong Kong took two weeks before it actually reached my mailbox. "in transit" just means that the package is moving, not necessarily meaning its in the US. The arrival date is just an estimated date, keep in mind because of holidays it could of miscalculated the wrong estimated arrival date.
