I got screwed also. I had pre-ordered and it wont arrive on Saturday because it's not available in my area, but guess what! I had made a reservation also at my nearest Apple Store, so just got my email reminding me to pick it up Saturday! and I will be there... I am not spending the weekend without the iPad! :p

I will return the other one when it arrives, or I will keep both! :)

So, you're saying that Houston, the 4th largest city in the US, does not have UPS Saturday delivery for Worldwide Express service. Hmmm.... somehow I'm not buying that one.

Nor does the Capital of California.... :mad:I just found out that, by contract between Apple and UPS, you can not arrange to pick up your package up at a UPS store. I was misslead the other day and now they are backing out of it.. I have to wait until next business day because we don't have Saturday deliveries. The lady i spoke with at UPS said they are going crazy dealing with phone calls related to the Apple delivery. She said they never seen anything like it.. She is getting a kick out of the whole thing tough.

I just got an email from Apple advising me "Saturday delivery is not available in your area." WTF..this sucks. UPS sucks, I get Saturday Fedex deliveries all the time. Why did Apple switch shipping companies, they've always used Fedex.

Could you screenshot that e-mail for me and post it here? It's not that I doubt you, but I've got some friends at UPS that would like to see that I'm sure.

No Saturday Delivery

:(I will have to wait for Monday delivery too as no Saturday delivery here in the capitol of Idaho. We don't even have an Apple store except we do have Best Buy. This is disappointing!

I got the same e-mail today... but I kind of expected it because of the area being rural.

And I called UPS Export/Import Services which I think is just their international number and they told me mine would be delivered.


Sorry its so small, I dont know why its like that, but you can still read it
