    What's your address, so I can drive by :p

    Seriously, I think this may be the carrier's fault and not fedex. They may have failed to check off the right box.

    Can you put a hold on it, so they can keep it in the distribution center and you pick it up or is it on the truck?

    Good luck

    When I spoke to AT&T they said they are not requiring signatures.

    Where did you order your phone from?

    Not sure if I would call this a FAIL.

    Just their policy. They (carrier and/or Fedex) are caught between a rock and a hard place, as they say.

    Require signature - miss a ton of deliveries and all the crap that comes with that. Hence the standard procedure for residential is not signature

    Sounds more like an AT&T fail than a FedEx fail. Apple requires a signature, AT&T should as well. If I were you, I would find a way to be there or have a trusted person there to accept it.

    Fedex just delivered mine too and no signature required. I heard a knock at the door, ran to open it and by the time I got there, the guy was already in his truck pulling away and my phone was sitting behind a column near my front door.

    Hope others that are not home have a good place for the driver to hide the box until you can get to it! :eek:
