    He should have a tracking number. Ask for it. If not, generally 2-7 days. I frequently ship across the country and FedEx usually takes 3 days from Boston to Venice/LA (of course, with you in Canada it will definitely take an extra day or so through customs). YMMV. Same deal with UPS.

    CA to IL is a four day ship via FedEx/UPS. so you're probably a five day min, plus customs. so quite a bit of time via ground.

    It could also be delayed if the shipment gets caught up at customs

    Quite possible.. it's ground, not air shipping. Why don't you have a tracking number? I'm sure your friend has a tracking, which he used to ask the lady. If he doesn't have a tracking, then your iphone is probably with him :p

    Find. the. tracking. number. I had a package delivered from Shanghai, China to Nashville in three days...by air of course. But every legitimate order with FedEx has an assigned tracking, whether by land or air.

    Maybe, maybe not. We have no way of knowing :rolleyes: But considering that I just used FedEx's site to get the transit time from LA to Toronto for a package shipped on a Monday, and it says it will arrive on Tuesday of the next week, I doubt it.

    My dad lives in San Jose and ships me stuff all the time (I live in Ottawa), and it takes about 8 or 9 business days usually so you'll probably get it sometime next week

    That's 8 or 9 business days, and typically, the day it's shipped doesn't count. Thursday will be the 8th day

    that's up to 14 business days probably. Unless told otherwise, always assume that when shipping companies say "days" they mean business days.
