    Does anyone know from previous Apple deliveries what is the required age to sign for the package? I know for most items it just has to be a resident at the shipping address but some companies request an adult signature for high value electronics. Does Apple do this? I'm 17 and my parents probably won't be home on Friday, so would they accept my signature if I show them an ID (my name is on the shipping label)?
    Thanks!

    Ain't no UPS guy gonna ask your ID bish.

    Wear your Dad's jacket and put on a deep voice. You'll be sweet.

    Grab a walkin' cane to be extra convincing.

    I believe its as long as you live in the household. I would sign for my parents packages all the time as a kid

    They won't id you. Just sign it. Dont say a word to UPS man. IF the UPS man asks a question, speak gibberish.

    Maybe old enough to open the door? TX used to have a law that if you could reach the bar, you could buy a beer. I assume the same is true for UPS.

    That's bad news. There will be a lot of stolen iPhones. I sure hope my delivery isn't until my wife is home...if it gets stolen I'll be supremely peeved.

    I was charged and its still on Backorder

    I usually go to the store and they have it so I'm able to cancel my backorder and get that but i guess not.

    Does that mean it'll be delivered on time 19th

    I don't think they really care. They just want you to sign so they can move on to the next house/their next delivery.

    I think it is carrier specific. That one seems to be sprint? The notice I get from my tracking number from apple is different.

    I think it'd only be an issue if you looked really young and were short. Even then, you could just show him your ID showing you are 17. If he thought you were 11 I don't think he wouldn't give it to you. I can't imagine being 17 is a problem, so don't worry everyone is right. You'll sign for it and he'll move to the next one. I wonder what their policy is on this, though.

    I ordered from Apple as well. Once you track the package, there is no notice that a signature is needed. After I saw this, I proceeded to talk to a UPS rep. He asked for my tracking number and saw that a signature was not required.

    When the UPS man arrives open the door, get the phone, place the phone inside, then sign the paper and if he ask you something tell him that you have something to do. Close the door and enjoy your new iphone.

    Actually, you are wrong. UPS has two different signature options for the sender to choose. One is a regular signature, and the other is an adult signature. If the latter is required, they will ask for your ID.
