Anyone thinking of flying to the FedEx hub in Alaska to try and get their iPhone?

    I saw that my iPhone landed on a plane in Alaska this evening. I checked a few flights, and I found a cheap same-day roundtrip flight to Alaska tomorrow...so I'm thinking I might try to go up there and see if I can convince someone at the FedEx hub to let me pick up my package early. If not, I can still make it back home tomorrow night before it gets too late.

    Obviously I'll need to bring my tracking number, my ID and a winter coat. But other than that, I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on the plane ticket.

    Anyone else planning on flyin up there tomorrow?

    A: You can't be serious, can you?
    B: They will not release the phone to you until a delivery attempt has been made
    C: It won't be there by the time you get there

    This post isn't actually real. Surely, it can't be. People aren't that crazy, are they?

    In case you were serious, it's a horrible idea. There's no way they would give it to you.

    I don't care if this is a troll. This is probably the most awesome thread this week. :D

    If you're serious and you do it, you will be a forum hero.

    This response is entirely contrived. I'll admit, you had me at first.

    Especially considering you posted this in another thread:

    Pretty funny. But yeah if you tried that you'd find that by Alaska HUB they mean Airport. Good luck trying to get you phone from a bulk shipment at the airport. LOL

    You don't really need a winter coat yet, it's not that cold in Anchorage in October. Plus you won't be there long.

    Anyway why not just go hang out in a bar in Cupertino and see if you get lucky.

    Where are you located? Maybe while you're there, you can pick mine up too and then I can come get it from you...

    your iPhone 4s is in a large 50 foot cargo trailer. its a very tiny box. the trailer will most likely be hooked up to a big rig to finish it travels to your local sorting facility . if you show up to a hub.
    1. you won't be allowed past the front door
    2. nobody is going to go through the entire truck to find a small box.
