by on March 11th, 2011

Today is Christmas for prospective iPad 2 owners, as droves of Canadians are on their way to their nearest US Apple Store (or are already in line!). Sales will start at 5pm local time, so I hope you’ve come prepared to wait.

If you’re waiting in line…let us know:

1. What US Apple Store you’re at.
2. How are the line ups? Is there still stock available?

    Meeting up with fellow iPadincanada member Stefan at 8am to head down across the border and wait in line at the Lynwood Apple store :D

    Lounge chair ready, iPad and iPhone ready… Good times to be had by all :D

    Can’t wait to come home and give my old iPad to my kids, and then enjoy the beauty of my new 64 gig iPad 2 :D

    Going tomorrow at walmart Plattsburgh :) buying iPad 2 3G White 16gb

  • malquin

    Going to Plattsburgh NY tomorrow afternoon. Saved the coordinates of Walmart, Target, Best Buy and AT&T store in my GPS.

    I’ll give them a call before leaving to see if they have some left. If not, will go following weekend.

  • Mike

    Scratch that, security guard kicked us out. Apparently you aren’t allowed to line up until 10am at Alderwood since Apple didn’t get permission from the Mall management.

  • Me Rob Zip

    Hey I am going to Alderwood mall in a bit – I’ll be wearing my red Olympic canada hoodie! me.rob.zip at me dot com … Probably leave van around 8 am?!

  • Justin

    I’m in line at the apple store in Allderwood mall. I’m 8th in line. There are 9 ppl here so far

  • http://twitter.com/andrewhaji Andrew Haji

    I was considering driving down to the U.S. to get an iPad 2 but when it’s all said and done, when you consider the cost of gas and taxes you have to pay coming back into Canada, it’s about the same price to get it locally. So I’m just going to wait the 2 weeks and pick it up from the Apple Store here in Toronto.

  • Michael

    The first ten people in line at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store are all Canadian! We’re sixth.

  • jchow

    Heading to the lynnwood apple store now

    If I’m buying an ipad at walmart in the USA, can I return it at the walmart in Canada?
    I’d like to know that before going, (cause it 1$ cheaper at walmart… :)

    And if I buy at the apple store in the US are there any testimony fees if I return it open box?

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    The first 10 people seem to be all Canadian!

    wondering if any of the Canadians waiting at alderwood are from the Okanagan? If so, would any of you be willing to be bring back an extra ipad2 for me?

  • Myeong Jin Yoo

    How is the lineup at alderwood mall now? Thinking of driving down there now.

  • Wasabi2go

    Bought online this Morning. 2-3 weeks but whatever. What are best iPad accessories?? The digital video converter (hdmi) seems cool

  • Anonymous

    Are you located in Canada? How’d you order online, they ship to the USA only…

  • Anonymous

    OMG I was 9th in line at Walden Galleria mall out of the 300 maybe 400/500 people that came! Now I have a white ipad 3g 64GB!!!!!!!!! HOLY COW IT WAS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Media, cops, hobos and all!

  • Anonymous

    I’m with you Andrew, unless I have to make a trip to the US for a different reason, I’d rather wait.

  • JCM

    BOO Bellingham.

    2@ Walmart both no 3G
    6@ Target no 3G
    15@ Bestbuy – let everyone stand in line (80) only to tell us at 3:45 . None of them 3G.

    How bad did it get at Apple Stores around Seattle? Are more coming for tomorrow?

  • Ovcrash

    I got my iPad from Best Buy in Plattsburgh and they have no more. I don’t think they will have some on saturday. They only had 15 iPad in stock, no 3G models and no 64Gb models.

    Target store had only 5 iPad only Black models.

    I don’t abount WallMart.

  • Mick232mick

    I was in plattsburg at 5hr45 pm. I went to best buy, target, walmart and at& t and imagine what! None of them have any ipad anymore! Sold out! Everywhere. So dont loose your time. I also ask a guy if he could call other store near plattsburg and he said sold out everywhere…..i was too late!

  • cheech

    Target had white models. Me and my friend each got one. 32GB

  • Myeong Jin Yoo

    I got so lucky @ burlington.

    First, I went to Bellingham BestBuy and saw 50+ ppl at 3:30ish.
    Then, I decided to go to the Burlington BestBuy and got there just before 4pm and there were only 3 ppl in the line.

    And I got mine and so did my girlfriend.

  • Myeong Jin Yoo

    Oh by the way, there was a limit.

    1 for each customer. SUCKS!!!

  • Ed

    Picked 1 up at 5th ave apple store NYC. Lined up at 7:30pm Fri. Left with 1 32gb white wifi just before 9:00pm. Been here all week on business trip. Back to Van tomorrow. Looked like enough stock for everyone in line.

  • Ramiro

    you ship it to a UPS store and pick it up once it gets there. they will charge 5 dollars.
    Or ship it to a reliable friend or family member

  • jDuB

    Got to Tulalip Walmart at 4:15pm yesterday (march 11)…there were 13 iPads in stock and I was the 12th in line! Had to settle for a black 16 GB one though. Was actually on my way to Alderwood Mall to check it out…wasn’t even expecting to be able to get one…only stopped at Tulalip to fill gas. Instead I came out of tulalip with a tank full of cheap American gas and an iPad 2! Nice. God bless America.

  • Mark

    Can you swap the SIM card on that 3G? I’ve heard that you can’t. Anyone with a 3G AT&T Model confirm or better yet how about a picture of swapping the microSIM?

  • Anonymous

    Yes I just got to Canada with the 3G model an popped in my Rogers iPhone sim and it works!!!!1 6GB for life.

  • Mark

    Any way you can snap me a pic of where you can remove the sim? It would be really helpful since the guy I asked to pick me up one insists it can’t be done – he swears he was looking at the AT&T model and not the Verizon one.

  • Anonymous

    I have nothing better to do. What’s your email address?

  • Mark

    if you could send it to markwbird at gmail dot com – I’d appreciate it.

  • Anonymous

    How can you do that?
    Do you just give the UPS address during checkout at apple.com and then once its at the UPS they call you and you come pay 5$
    Or
    Do you have to go through a third party company like “Shipitto…” a mail forwarder?

  • gordon

    I ordered online as well and shipped it to my mail depot (UPS Store like) in Point Roberts and this afternoon Apple emailed to tell me they were canceling my order because it was being sent to a Mail depot

  • sussy

    I am planning to drive to Bellingham tomorrow, do you think the apple stores still have some in stock ? Even if its just the ones without 3G.

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    Doubtful

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    I have direct reports that every WalMart, BestBuy, Target, and Apple Store in Washington are sold out.

    The Lynnwood store in particular ran through their last 16/32 GB wifi by 12PM on March 12. If you go, you’re taking a gamble, so expect to not get one.

    Lynnwood will have more on Tuesday morning, be there real early.
