Anyone gotten their iPad 2 yet?

    Just signed up for Dish again after a long (5 year!) hiatus. Holy cow is the Hopper neat compared to the 6000 (plus OTA tuner!) I used to rock.

    Anyway, just wondering if anyone got their iPad 2 yet, or if the 4-6 week window is really accurate. Disappointing if true, and weirdly unnecessary since I paid my first months' fee when I first signed up.

    Thanks!

    It is coming from Apple and not from Dish, so it's up to Apple on when you get it.

    Disappointing because it will take the amount of time Dish posted it would?

    Well, there's no good reason for it. If I ordered one off Apple.com, it would be in my hands within 2-3 days.

    At any rate, I noticed today that this promotion just started a week ago. Will post back when it finally arrives.

    If you ordered one off Apple.com it wouldn't be free...

    If your state law allowed you to cancel service with no penalty within 7 days and you had the iPad in 3 days... it would be more hassle than it's worth.

    Just an update, my iPad shipped on June 1, and I got a tracking number via e-mail from Apple this AM. So only about a week from install (5/26) to ship isn't too bad.

    Coming via UPS Ground which is a bummer, but better than waiting the full 4-6 weeks!

    I had a feeling that 4-6 week timeframe was just there to cover Dish. Knew Apple wouldn't take that long.

    I ordered my Dish service on 8/16. As of 9/12 I still have not heard anything about getting my iPad in the mail.

    just curious why anyone would go for the Ipad 2 offer? If you do the math over the 24 months that your package isn't discounted you are spending way more than you could get a current version of the Ipad 3 for.

    Why do you say 24 months? They gave me 2 options. iPad, or save $20 a month over 12 months. You are in a 2 year contract but only the first year is the promotional period. $20 x 12 is $240. iPad 2 is $399.

    How do I cancel STARZ? I had the HBO-STARZ bundle for six months.

    You can cancel on line, over the phone, via chat, or with a pm to a D.I.R.T. team member.

    As far as I know there's two ways to get an iPad. Be a new or returning customer who signs up to get a Hopper and agrees to give up their monthly discounts for the first year of their two year contract and they'll give you an iPad2 instead. Or if you're an existing customer if you refer three people who sign up for Dish with a Hopper install you get a free iPad2, you also get the benefit of saving $150 bucks off your bill by doing that as well. As far as I know there's no current promotion for getting a free iPad just for doing an upgrade.
