Re: The Apple iPad

Reminds me of the Mac forums on or near release day... pages and pages of hyperventilating fanboys posting their tracking info like it has anything to do with the product

Re: The Apple iPad

I will most likely be at work when TNT try and deliver my goodies but I see they are part of Swiss Post so does that mean I can collect it at the post office on Saturday?

Cheers

Re: The Apple iPad

'Fraid you can't pick TNT deliveries up from the post office, and in fact TNT Switzerland (unlike most other Swiss things, mercifully) are a pain in the ass when it comes to missed deliveries. There's no default redelivery attempt. Whatever you want to do (redeliver / deliver elsewhere / etc) involves a call to their customer service line which is only open, um, restricted hours, and as far as I know there's no "..or you can pick it up from our depot here" option.

This is, oddly, in contrast to TNT UK, who when they delivered my PowerMac G5 a number of years ago put me on hold when I called them after getting the card, got the delivery driver on the phone, then told me he'd be passing nearby shortly and would call in to deliver it. Best service I've ever had from a courier company.

Re: The Apple iPad

Looks like it might be arriving a day early

27 May 2010 ----- 09:20:30 ----- Zurich ----- Out For Delivery

Since the depot is in Zurich, you Zurchers might be receiving yours any minute.

EDIT: Goodo, its been delivered

Re: The Apple iPad

I ordered on the first day as well (yerp, I'm a tragic nerd), but it looks like my shipment arrived at the Zürich depot just too late to make yesterday's delivery and the van that delivers to my part of town goes out in the afternoon, so with any luck it will be flagged "out for delivery" in the next hour or so.

Re: The Apple iPad

Was wondering where my delivery was today, so dropped TNT a line. At least for people in Zürich, they have a lot of Apple shipments to deliver, so they're going to be doing special delivery runs this evening.

Kind of nice, really, and will save a lot of people the frustration of a missed delivery, but had I known that in advance I wouldn't have bothered waiting in..

It only goes through customs once as far as I know, but as it can presumably clear customs in Mendrisio, Geneva or Zürich depending on where it's coming from, they list all three.

(Disappointed at TNT - their promise that I'd get a delivery this evening didn't pan out. I'm not that desperate a fanboy, but having to wait in for a delivery is a pain in the backside.)

Re: The Apple iPad

Ours have been sitting in Zurich marked as "In transit" since 11am on Wednesday We'll be very unhappy bunnies if they aren't delivered today, having had notification that they would be delivered "on or before" 28th
