HP employees will have a chance to purchase a refurbished HP TouchPad via eBay before the sale is announced to the general public. Specifically, the TouchPads will be offered through one of HP's newest marketplaces for close-out and refurbished HP products, the new HP eBay Store <http://stores.ebay.com/hewlettpackard> .
look around
This product will NOT be available through any other HP stores, such as the Home & Home Office store, Small & Medium Business store, HP EPP or the HP Business Outlet. PLEASE DO NOT CALL ANY OF THESE CALL CENTERS BECAUSE IT DISRUPTS REGULAR SALES ACTIVITIES AND THEY'RE UNABLE TO PROCESS AN ORDER FOR THE TOUCHPADS ANYWAY.

In an effort to give HP employees first chance at a very limited supply of refurbished TouchPads, there will be a short delay between when the product is posted live for sale on eBay and when the general public is notified of the sale.

Refurbished HP TouchPads, both 16GB and 32GB versions, will be posted for sale through the HP eBay store at: 6:00 p.m. (Central Time), Sunday, December 11th. If you are interested in purchasing a refurbished TouchPad, please make yourself a reminder to log-on to eBay a few minutes before the sale starts to make your purchase.

The TouchPads will be available for sale here (under "Laptops"):

Stolen unit from Indianapolis. I contacted UPS and they won't help me. They told me to check with my neighbors, and then have the seller open an investigation with them. My neighbors don't have it, so I sent HP a message through ebay. HP sent me a message back saying per the tracking info it was delivered. I already explained this situation in my original email, so I sent the same thing back. I am awaiting a 2nd response from HP. But it doesn't look good so far. I will be opening a paypal dispute tomorrow. EDIT- I called the # and they were very helpful and said they are sending me a replacement, which will be here by christmas.
Received 16GB when 32GB was paid for - 1 (from TX)

How to Update Refurbished Touchpad from OS version 3.0.2 to latest 3.0.4

I got my Touchpad today, but the newly arrived refurbished Touchpad is running OS version 3.0.2 and claims to be up to date. Of course, we know that the latest OS is 3.0.9 from the retail Touchpads.

In order to update it to the latest OS, you have to use webOS Doctor. First, go through the Setup steps on your Touchpad and create a webOS account, aka HP Profile. Then to go http://www.hpwebos.com/account and log in. Clicked on Device Options and download the webOS Doctor.

Once webOS Doctor is downloaded, run it and follow the steps until it asks you to connect the Touchpad. Before you connect, you have to put your Touchpad into USB Update mode using these steps [hpwebos.com] listed on the webOS Doctor FAQ.

Then the Next button should show up and it will proceed. The whole process took about 1 hour, and my Touchpad is now running on the latest 3.0.9 and hopefully it will receive future OS updates too (if not use these steps again).

-- c46

FYI, I tried to update from 3.0.2 to 3.0.9 for multiple times without success yesterday. And gave a first shot today, it updates smoothly by itself, takes around 20 minutes. If you don't wanna to go through webOS doctor, you may just hold on for a while and just keep on trying. System itself doesn't have too much difference.

Just a heads up. The 30 lbs showing under your tracking IS only for 1 Touchpad. If you ordered 2, you can track the other one by REFERENCE if you have or set up an account with UPS to be able to view "Additional Information". Once you are logged in and use your existing tracking number, you will see under additional information a reference number. Simply take the last number of that reference number and increase or decrease by 1 and then copy and paste that to "track by reference", select United States and your zip code and do your search. You should see the other package in transit. I have 4 separate shipments, 3 from Indianapolis and 1, scheduled for delivery today, from Edison NJ. Again,you need to create an account with UPS to see this additional information and reference number. I have delivery alerts set up with "My UPS" and that's how I know.


Alternate tracking by REFERENCE without signing up for UPS account.

Check the "universal plug", it has a twist off plug for different countries. Lame if you ask me and others have had the same problem.

I had a hard time finding this epic thread for some reason. I was going to mention if you haven''t already bought a protective pouch/case the Verizon Leather pouch is only $3.99 shipped from Daily Steals on ebay.

my TP starts to freeze up very often in the past 3 weeks. I would use it for 10 minutes then it happens. sometimes, it's only about 2-3 minutes apart.
I have 3.0.5 version. anyone has this same problem? HP says to get hpweb doctor to update the software to 3.0.5, which is what i already have, to fix the problem. they also offered to replace my hp with another one though.

do you TP owners spend your websufing time on these devices? i'm so accustomed to using firefox on laptops with ad/privacy assurance apps like adblock plus, googlesharing, etc...

there's so much social media tracking that i can block on a PC webbrowser that you cant even on a blackberry as far as i know...

how's the extent of privacy when using one of these TPs, whether you stick w/ the stock webOS browser or move on with installing another OS?

Firefox is available for Android as well as Chrome (Beta) now available for Android. Both allow the use of extensions. Not sure if they are all compatible but if you list a few I can check for you.

anyone know how long the warranty runs? I now have an issue where the screen is insanely dark and barely readable as well as flickering madly. Unusable. When I put the product # in to get to be able to email support is comes up as 'that's not found'. I emailed the pre-buying support telling them that they blocked me out of emailing support and asking for an email for the proper department but I'm so confused at this point. HP site is a giant maze.

Not true, sigh. The warranty ended on 03/19/12. There is no 1 year warranty. It will cost $236 to fix a hardware issue (which I have).

I paid $150 for three months of a Touchpad. Regret doesn't even come close enough to what I'm feeling.

New warranty should be 1 year. If you bought it refurbished, then that is usually shorter

Refurb is 90 days...You should know this when you purchase it. As for what you can do, try your credit card company to protect you...some double the warranty, not sure what policy on refurbs are but I think it doubles that too...

For some reason I thought it was 1 yr. Our dell refurbs and camera refurbs were all 1 yr for hardware/device malfunction. I'm trying to scramble and win something or sell something to replace it now, it was my 5 yr. old's christmas present and he keeps asking for it Frown
