    My iPad went from Processing to Preparing for shipment. Delivery is between 16th and 20th.

    My iPad is currently in Nashville, Tennessee, with a ship date listed as 3/9. Estimated delivery is 3/16.

    Here's a weird one though, and please let me know if any of you have had something similar happen.

    I purchased the iPad on day one after much frustration. The transaction went through and was debited from my checking account successfully. I received a confirmation email from Apple, and have watched the iPad go from Processing, to Preparing for Shipment, to being Shipped.

    This morning, I checked the balance in my checking account and something didn't seem right. My account balance seemed higher than it should be. Strangely, Bank of America is showing no record that the transaction ever took place. No trace of a purchase, or a refund. No email from Apple, and still showing as shipped.

    Anyone else experience something like this?

    Should I be worried?
    I had problems ordering here in the UK on the Wed night and Apple managed to authorise a payment without completing the order!

    I spoke to both Apple and my bank on the Thurs morning and having had emails from both stating that the original Authorisation will 'fail to complete' and return the funds I ordered again with no problems.

    My shiny new iPad has shipped and is only 100 miles away in Hinckley, I wouldn't mind popping over one evening to save the courier the journey on Friday morning

    Meanwhile I am watching my bank account to see 399 come back and 399 leave (gulp). Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly from here.

    I ordered a 32 Gig AT&T Black about 2 pm PST the day of the launch. Still processing the order!
    So I'm not the only one stuck at the processing stage huh?

    I also ordered mine on announcement day. UPS tracking says it reached Louisville, KY this morning with an arrival date of 3/16. I have my fingers crossed I'm a mess up that gets delivered early!! I'm leaving for a trip hours before it will reach my house

    Shipped! FedEx from Middletown, PA.

    Should be good to go for the 16th or maybe a day earlier if I'm lucky.

    Maybe I'll get it early by some karma points for mailing original iPad to my sister.

    I ordered Wednesday 5:00 MST. Went to "preparing to ship" late Thursday and has been stuck there ever since. Getting a little concerned as Apple has announced pre-orders are sold out. Still says delivery on 16th. Hubby more anxious than me as he's getting my iPad 2.

    Have no fear. I have done this since the first time the iPhone was available for presale. If yours says it is to arrive on the 16th, you'll get it on the 16th...
