    They allow pick ups.

    Typically call in advance and ask them to hold it.

    Yes, but only after they make the first delivery attempt.

    That's been my experience with FedEx and UPS. Sucks since if my phone makes it here, I'll be walking distance from it today. I can see the building out the window.

    I'd call during "normal" biz hours to confirm its waiting for you. The last thing you want is for the overnight call center in India to have given you bad info and only to find out once you are at the station. Personally, I've never been able to "hold" an Apple package. I'm always told they have to make a delivery attempt. Could be different this time, as it seems a lot of things are, but I'd confirm just the same.

    As long as you know your tracking number, FedEx will let you hold it for pick-up, otherwise you will have to wait for the first delivery attempt. They cannot hold based on your name and delivery address due to restrictions within their data system.

    I was just on the phone with FedEx and they said the shipper wants the package to have 1 delivery attempt before they will let me pick it up from the sort facility...Maybe I can get them to change the delivery address to my car in their parking lot and drive up there and let them make the delivery!
