How long before it gets to Chicago, anyone with experience that can give me an idea?

Mine maybe on the same flight as yours.

If so, yours is in Alaska now and should be a direct flight from there to Chicago.


Mines was in Alaska yesterday and made a direct flight to NJ today which just left and will arrive in NY tomorrow.

My friend ordered my ipad 2 (engraved) as a graduation gift on may 3rd, original ship date was May 17 and delivery 5/19 then later moved to 5/23.

As of May 13th it's "prepared for shipment", but still hasn't shipped.

Today my delivery date changed to 5/26-31 so I called this morning 5/18 and expressed my disappointment, they offered me a free smart cover which I declined bc I have one already so they're sending me a free wireless keyboard :) which has shipped and will be here in Chicago Friday.

I'm hoping my ipad ships soon bc all the accessories are teasing me.

The worst part of all is that Walmart (Dekalb, IL) had 5 in stock the other night. *fingers crossed for an early ship date*

Good luck!

Just checked status and for the 4th day it says prepared for shipment. And ships and 1 to 2 days....that was 3 days ago. Still not shipped yet.

Getting really frustrating. I guess I'll call Apple again to find out what's going on.....hopefully someone will know.

Glad some of you are getting your iPad soon.

Just spoke again with the Apple.com on line store rep. Our ipads are being boxed as we speak and being shipped out today. He could not tell me whether they were being shipped by UPS or FED-EX but did say 90% were Fed-Ex'd. He did comp the wireless keyboard that has been sitting here for at least 2 weeks.

Just as a refresher: ordered 2 16 GB wifi only, engraved, 1 black, 1 white on May 5. Original shipping Date: May 20. Original delivery date: May 25. Changed May 18 to Shipping date: May 20; Delivery date: June 2nd.

Called Apple again.....they have THE best customer service reps I have seen in my life!

My iPad should be shipped on Saturday. She apologized and is sending me a wireless keyboard for the delays......how can you argue with that?

I am so impressed with Apple.....they really do know how to make their customers happy / content.

Got it! Shipped on May 14 and I picked it up from UPS today here in Chicago. I was at work when they tried to deliver earlier today but no way I was waiting another day! It must be said that the difference between this and my previous iPad 1 is not huge but I have been iPad-less since I sold my old one two weeks ago and it's nice to be fully equipped again.

Isn't it fun getting a new toy? I was like a kid on Christmas when mine came in. Have fun!

On a brighter note, my free keyboard and AV cord will be here Monday! Happy Birthday to me :)

I feel for you guys & gals. I luckily hit an Apple Store where they got a shipment in that morning. There was only one left when I got there in the early afternoon...16GB WiFi only Black..just what I wanted.
