    I just saw my UPS driver back up and thought he was going to deliver my 6s/6s+ so I went and dress up.

    As I came back to the window, he was GONE and I frantically checked online to see that a "First Attempt Made" was shown.

    I opened my door and NOTHING, no notice.

    Now I have to wait for a call from the customer service who will hopefully chase down the driver and tell him to come back.

    Man if I known he was leaving, I would have ran out half naked telling him to get his ass back here.

    Unbelievable, anyone already have this issue?

    Always go out half naked, they've seen worse.

    If there's no notice, maybe he wasn't going to deliver the phone to you.

    I would have done that, who cares what you have (or don't) on, as long as you don't miss the delivery.

    I've gone to the door in my underwear before

    In my previous home our driver never left notice. He just "made an attempt" and left. Very frustrating. I'm happy to live in an apartment again, now our front office just signs off on all packages..

    (should have left my delivery there instead of UPS pickup >.< )

    So he didn't even ring the bell and took off?

    I dont think it would show First Attempt Made if it was not delivered to me.

    These threads are so annoying. It's just a phone...

    No door bell, but he didn't knock. I would know, I was in my living room

    He'll probably come back. I've seen multiple trucks for a certain street area on big delivery days like Apple launches. Or, maybe it just wasn't "your turn" yet.

    I just found out that the deliver driver didn't leave it, even though I printed out the pre-sign form and left it on the door.
    they left it last year. I don't get it. so inconvenient, my family and I work all day on Friday

    Oh, I see, I misunderstood your comment, so its showing a first attempt WAS made. Well that stinks. My experience in this is not encouraging. I was never able to get the driver to return on a just missed delivery attempt. Good luck

    I waited outside a coffee shop that I know he parks in front of. I waited for him to pop open the back and I casually strolled up asking if he had a package for me. He looks at me and says "iPhone?". :)

    I slowly walked back to my lower east side apt, then sprinted up the stairs.

    Sooooo don't click on it? Of course it's just a material object, this whole website is dedicated to material objects..

    I use my phone alllll day, and not just as a phone. I can understand being bummed missing the delivery. I'm bummed UPS can't find mine.

    Are you serious? People drop hundreds, sometimes a thousand plus dollars on these things. Is it not too much to ask for that a delivery man does his damn job? Skipping deliveries and marking them as attempted to deliver is borderline fraudulent.

    you better track him down or you wont see that phone until monday.

    Did you realize the phone was coming today? If it was my phone first and foremost, a towel is appropriate attire for solicitors and deliveries during the day, second I would have answered the door as is. I am sure the driver has seen at least one penis or vagina/set of boobs in their life time.

    Yeah, literally go after him or you'll be without your new shiny device all weekend.

    I really doubt customer service will get a hold of the driver so he can go back.

    I agree! UPS and FedEx drivers can tell a lot of stories about what they have seen come to the door! I don't think there is much that you can wear, or not wear, that would even phase them!

    I would have just answered the door wearing whatever. It's a delivery dude, not a date.

    Dont Freak just yet. My UPS driver just told me they have different trucks today to deal with all the iphones and such. I was expecting 2 packaged today,my iphone and a case. He had my phone but not the case. I called and UPS assured me my case was on another truck and they had to get extra trucks for the increase in packages today.

    I'm praying a CS rep calls me back with a 2nd delivery attempt or pickup same day.
