    I had similar with the mac pro some years ago :( it was compounded because at that time, the last stage of the journey was untrackable! It literally said "IN UK - delivery within 2-5 days" but no notion of exactly when :/

    Hope my iphone 4 doesn't suffer the same fate :/

    I suspect the original ipad that was supposed to come to us either got lost or ended up being diverted to a retail outlet or something or 'dropped'

    This is the reason I refuse to order from the apple site unless 100% necessary :sigh: Is there a good stock of them available in apple stores at the moment?

    Hmmm, was thinking about ordering from the Apple website, may just ring around Milton Keynes and Cambridge to see if they have any in stock instead. I have no patience at the best of times, let alone if I have to wait as long as you have!!

    Well I think we just hit very lucky yesterday as I did a check and there are now none in the Leeds area Currys/PC world stores. I think you just have to keep phoning the stores that actually sell them, or keep popping in. On the Curry's website it tells you which stores do sell them, it isn't all of them.

    I don't know Apple's stock situation. It does say 7 - 10 days delivery on the website though.

    Lisas is now at east midlands airport and has been there for 12 hours. Typical everything stops when it hits the uk lol. Nevermind at least it's in the country

    Well it should be with her soon. I hate such completely annoying and unnecessary delays like this when you just can't do anything about it.

    Oh yes, though I have much to learn as I didn't have an iPhone. John is sorting it as he has an iPhone so a little more savvy. The best fun was our 2 sons just can't believe I got one before them.:happybounce:

    It really is a great 'machine'.

    Just started looking at apps.
