There have been numerous posts over the past week about account funds being frozen for iPod purchases. I ordered a 64GB 3G model on March 13th and about 4 days ago Apple tied up my funds with an appx $900 pending transaction.

As an FYI - Apple went in last night and reversed the pending transaction - so - the $$ is back in my account now. I guess they'll re-auth as we get closer to the end of April time frame.

Sigh. Anyone else starting to wish they ordered the WiFi just to they could have it Sat? I know I want the 3G but the wait is going to make me crazy! :eek:

Best Buy...Saturday morning...
30 day return policy and no restocking fee (from what I've heard)

You figure out the rest. :D

I hear you but I suspect it is going to be nuts there on Sat. I may wander by to try the display model and if they have one then we will see what the little guy dressed in red on my shoulder says :)

I wonder why they reversed the 3G orders. Could it mean a later shipping date? Something tells me that iPad 3G = May.

What scares me is the risk that you buy it and that 30 days later the 3G still is not out. Are you going to be strong enough to do the return ? :confused:

I've thought about that. Luckily I have two grown children and I'm sure one of them would accept it as a *slightly used * gift:)

I don't thing there will be a 30 day slip on the 3G models - Apple wouldn't do that - they're comfortable they can meet demand - think of how bad it would look.

Fact is that they charged all of the 3G orders in error wayyyy to early - and it took them some time to reverse the holds / charges. I'm sure about a week before release they'll start marking the 3G's as prepped for shipping and start hitting the cards.

To be honest though - I bet a lot of people would like the opportunity to just pay for the damned thing and be done with it.

I don't know much about Apple's commitment to meeting dates. They said March in the original iPad announcement and missed it (even if just by a few days). They always said that the 3G would be a month later so that would lead you to believe that it should be early May but they have not set a date - thus my concern.
