Another thing you might do in addition to posting your certificate request "Transfer/Ship" is to do what Farsight suggested I do when I was with them and wanted shares transfered to my name. When I bought one share of stock I was told to wait until the settlement date, usually three days, before requesting a stock transfer. The reason being if they get a request before the settlement date they can't do anything until settlement, but if they get the request after the settlement date then they can act right away. This is the explanation they gave me and I don't know if this will help in getting suretrade to issue shares in a more timely fashion. Try it and see.
