    I'm a little confused on how to do that. I want to get my phone earlier than it being shipped to me in the afternoon. Do you have to have an account or something to do the hold?

    I don't know about Fedex, but for UPS when the tracking number gets sent, you just click on a button on the tracking page to hold the package. When the package arrives in your UPS facility, you just go in and pick it up. Easy.

    You can make an account if you'd like. I think you may need one for them to hold it at a certain location. FedEx always delivers to me before 10:30am so i'm good with that. UPS is random and sometimes as early as 9am or as late as 7pm.

    Make sure you don't have it held at/rerouted to a UPS or Fedex store. That has taken an extra day for my deliveries in previous years.

    Think I may preorder for the first time.

    Does apple require the package to be signed for?

    Yes. I have ordered them every year in the past and they have required indirect signature confirmation. You can either sign for it when it is delivered or print a delivery confirmation page and sign it to allow them to release the iPhone. You place the piece of paper on your front door.
