    Mine finally shipped today also, I ordered the blue one with the white keyboard. Delivery estimate date is 04/02 because Zagg upgraded my shipping to 2nd day air! Hope it gets here and is better then what I have been reading on this thread!

    Wow, I'm impressed with the shipping! It shipped from Utah late Thursday night and arrived this morning Priority mail.my estimated delivery date was 04/04 - 04/08! I'll take it!

    I opened the box and thought I was short a keyboard since there were 3 boxes instead of 4 and they ship the keyboards separately. But to my surprise my carbon case had the keyboard already in the one box. My wife's purple case came in two boxes.

    I'm charging the keyboards right now but even though the box doesn't mention iPad 3 anywhere on it I have no issue with the fit. The auto on and off doesn't work and my screen protector is taking a beating.

    More later.

    Why is your screen protector taking a beating? You will have to reverse the magnets in the ZAGG to get the unlock to work.

    Sounds like you got a 2 version.

    I'm not impressed, my shipping is 2nd day air and it left Salt Lake City late Thursday night as well and barely arrived in Louisville Ky at 5:38 this morning, what the heck!?!? Did they drive it there!?!?

    Paul does every case have to have the magnets reversed or is it just the luck of the draw?

    It's should be the luck of the draw. If they were placing them without regard to Polarity and at random, then statistically it should be a 50/50 chance you have one that will work. My case, it didn't and I had to pull the panel off that covers the compartment that had the magnet and then flip it. It worked after that.

    Mine doesn't work either. I pulled back some of the felt but didn't see anything that looked like a magnet or a compartment for that matter. I was uneasy pulling more of the felt off so quit while I was ahead!

    That's because the magnet is not under the felt. I'll try to post a picture later.

    The compartment that has the magnet is behind the front edge on the keyboard side.

    Gently pry from each side the panel, which is secured by heat glue. Be careful not to damage it. use a hooked tool, there is space on either side to hook around the end of the panel.

    You may need to use another magnet to get the magnets out.

    There are two magnets in my example that are stuck together.

    Magnets are separated. You will have to experiment a bit by playing with the right combinations of putting the two back together. It is trial and error. Place the magnet on the switch area of the iPad. It will shut off when you found the right combination. Then make sure it is face up
    when you put back in the ZAGG. Then reassemble.
