Hi,

Yesterday the status of my order changed to shipping and I got my track number and it was shipped with UPS and currently on Arrival Scan status.

Is it possible to change my delivery address? and is it for free?

Thanks,

I finally got my Verizon shipping information and wanted to change it to a FedEx Pick location and that option isn't available. My guess it likely won't let you because they want to ensure the purchaser gets it. If you did it with the order than its possible. Go to the tracking information on UPS and see if the option is there. I prefer Fedex and it has the option.

Yes, you can change your delivery address in transit. First, you need to register "UPS My Choice" (for free). Go to your UPS tracking page, and you can see "Change Delivery" button or something similar like that. Click it, then new page appears with some options to choose. Choose either "Leave with Neighbor" or "Deliver to Another Address" depends on distance between your old and new addresses. "Deliver to Another Address" charges $5. Check the below link for more details.

This doesn't work since apple bars you from changing the shipping address. Apple really ****ed up on this one. You have to call apple to change the shipping address and they have to do it for you. I got my phone on Tuesday instead of the previous Friday (launch day) because, despite me calling apple 3 times to change the address before UPS made the shipping label, they still didn't get it to UPS on time. Not only that, after UPS finally got a change in address request, my phone sat in a warehouse for 3 days before finally getting to me. All the meanwhile 3 apple employees lied to my face telling me I would get my phone on launch day.

Well, attempted to get my address changed - requested it 5 days before it shipped rang up 3 times and Apple hadn't gotten round to processing it, on launch day the request was put in after it had been loaded onto the UPS truck and 3 hours after it was delivered to the original address (it's a good thing that it didn't matter much) - so it's possible but unlikely.

This worked for me, yesterday. Well, I was with T-mobile though. I called T-mobile first to request my shipping address modification but CSR says system doesn't allow that. So I called UPS and they gave me this information and it worked.
