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.

If anyone in the SF Bay Area has a 16gb or 32gb (preferably 32gb), that they'd like to sell, please PM me. I know there are sob stories galore from people wanting these, but quite honestly, I'd really like to give one to my uncle as an early Christmas gift because he was just admitted to the hospital about an hour ago, and he'll likely be there for quite some time. Even without access to WiFi and such, I'd like to load up his gift with all the things his gadget-loving self will enjoy messing with.
I hope you do find someone who's willing to sell you one without charging you an arm and a leg. I know its tough when your loved ones get admitted. I wish your uncle and your family the best of luck.

has anyone got refund for the huge tax and shipping?
very funny. I placed two orders with my two ebay accounts, one paypal though.
One has tax and standard shipping,
One without tax and Expedia shipping.
The difference is about $70 to the same destination.

Many companies have a discount with Verizon. You just enter your email address here to find out: http://www.verizonwireless.com/em...tion.shtml

Mine is 20% on service (fortunately the company pays this for me) and 25% on accessories.
Dang, I forgot I have a Verizon Wireless discount through my university. Oh well, next time. Smilie

Are you sure the charger is properly locked? Take a look here:

So weird, I've checked the link in my email and in my ebay account on the computer. Not much information other than "2 Business Days Left."

I got onto my iPod Touch (no smartphone yet haha), logged onto the eBay app, and I was able to get better information such as 1. it's coming from IN and 2. estimated delivery date of the 20th.

It worked to get a smidge more information for me, maybe it will someone else who stalks a tracking number as I do!
You'll also get more information on http://www.packagemapping.com/.

My 1st TP arrived yesterday in perfect condition. It looked new and was able to boot on. It came from NJ.

I also have one scheduled to be delivered today. This one is from Indianapolis.

I know I'm new here, but I wanted to see if anyone wants to sell a 16gb model at/near cost or for a small profit (after factoring in shipping/tax of course). I clicked BIN within 10 seconds but never got ebay to work. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for my wife. Unfortunately, I didn't find out about the .ca trick until it was too late. Embarrassment

I am in CT near New Haven if someone has one locally.

Feel free to PM me if interested.

I bought 2 32gb models. The tracking number I got said they would be in today (the 14th) from NJ. I actually got 1 in yesterday from IL. Smilie Waiting for the other one to get in today. These will be some great gifts!

go to packagemapping.com and put in your tracking number.. then it will show you a reference number..
Copy that number and go to UPS.com
click on track by reference..
paste your reference number and delete the last number.. add/subtract 1 to the number you deleted. there should pop up your other shipment.

Has anyone purchased a SquareTrade warranty for one of the ebay Touchpads s/he purchased? As I understand it, installing Android on the TouchPad will void the warranty from HP, but I'm wondering if it also voids the Squaretrade warranty.
