    =(

    They say there is Saturday delivery for my area... but because of the incoming "port" and due to customs that Tuesday April 6th is the scheduled delivery date! I'm disappointed to say the least... I was really excited to get my hands on it on launch day!

    I'll just have to live vicariously through the rest of you guys who DO receive yours on Saturday. :(

    Oh no, that's terrible news!!! I guess I better prepare myself mentally for the same thing happening here. Will be very disappointing to say the least!!

    I'm sure it won't be that way for everybody. She said it all boiled down to the port of entry and if my port would have been Kentucky... then I would be getting it by Saturday but since my port was elsewhere (and she didn't say where) that it would be Tuesday... unfortunately!

    I'm sad like a kid that would have to wait 'till New Year's eve to open his Christmas gifts. hehe

    Just consider yourself lucky to be getting it by the 6th. I'm still on the "late April" guesstimate. It feels like forever:(

    That is crazy--not a UPS fan here, much prefer FedEx!! I will be surprised if Apple lets this happen. :confused:

    Still waiting for even "prepared to ship"--I did not order on the first day though. :(

    Well even though tracking from UPS doesn't show an estimated delivery for me... my shipment notification from Apple (that contains my tracking number) still says delivers by Apr 3rd so I guess there is still hope but I'm not gonna get my hopes up. Maybe I just got ahold of an operator that was (hopefully) mistaken somehow!

    I will be surprised as well. It strikes me as odd that Apple would sign an agreement with a shipper without being guaranteed that all of their pre-ordered iPads would arrive by Apple's promised date of 4/3. I really hope that UPS just doesn't have their ducks in a row yet.

    Mine is 'prepared'...

    Mine is at 'Prepared to Ship' and I preordered on 03/19... It doesn't say who the carrier will be yet...

    Is it a either or between UPS and FedEx? Or are they all coming by UPS? I'm not a big fan of UPS...

    :(
