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.

I'm the impatient type I called them the day it showed delivered and the rep put in the system to send me one out, sent it monday they received Wed, and getting it today Friday, they sent out next day air.
Thanks, I would recommend calling if you send one back in. I took your advice and called to check on my status. They didn't even have it in their system that mine had been received (it was received on Wednesday morning). They were able to update my file and said that my replacement would be sent out either today or Tuesday.

After playing around with mine for about a week or so, I felt that having $200 in my pocket was more satisfying.

I opened the 2 32gb units that I had gotten today. Sadly one of them refuses to turn on. Did anyone else get a DOA unit from this deal?
My friend got a doa that came from texas

When did you send yours in. I had to send mine in as well and was wondering when I should expect it back. I have not heard anything since they received it. Thanks.
I sent it in last Thursday. I received it tidy. My touch pad had a screen problem so I couldn't even use it. It looks like they replaced the screen. I remember a very tiny blemish onthe rubber in the corner And I'm using it to post this right now.

Generally they replace and do not repair. So are you sure you got the same one?

Got the $100 GC also. The GC showed up and I couldn't figure out where it came from. I thought it might be a present from someone I knew but couldn't figure it out. Then about 12 hours later I got an email explaining it.

Btw, I also got 4 touchpads (2 sold to friends for 0 profit and 2 for gifts).

Refurbished Unit will have an "R" added to the end of the model number - eg: FB359UAR. You can see both the model number and the storage capacity in the information app on the settings screen.

I got the same options and picked option 1. They shipped the box to me overnight with a prepaid label for overnight shipping back to the facility in El Paso. I called last Friday, received the box on Monday and mailed back on Tuesday. I just got an e-mail that they have shipped my repair/replacement overnight today. I would not pay the extra as it seems they ship overnight for both option 1 and option 2.
