    What should I do if I can't be home for the iPhone delivery and it says that the package needs to have a signature by someone. Should I leave a note on the door, or is there something I can fill out on FedEx's website.

    Any help is greatly appreciate!
    Thanks!

    Leave a note on the door that includes the tracking number, where you want the package left, and your signature as well as your name printed. Works for me every time.

    You can try calling FedEx and ask them to leave it at the facility and you go pick it up.

    UPS has a form you fill out and leave on your door so that you don't need signature confirmation. I ordered my iphone through apple and this option was available. I would think fed ex has a similar procedure.

    Thanks guys! Very helpful. I'm going to try to leave a note at the door where they shoud leave it. I'm not exactly close the FedEx location in my city, so it would be very out of the way.

    I won't be able to sign for my package, what can I do?

    For packages not requiring a signature for release, our drivers will leave the package at a recipient's door, or other secure location, if the driver believes it is reasonable to do so. If your package was shipped with the Indirect Signature Release option, you may leave a signed and dated handwritten note on the door instructing the driver to leave the package at your door.

    EDIT: From fedex.com

    I'm not sure you want to do that. It's so easy for someone to just take it, including the Fedex guy and if you sign that waiver Fedex and Apple are essentially off the hook. It might be safer to just to have them hold it for you.

    Does Apple do the indirect signature? I know with my PS3 coming back from repair I had to sign for it in person, they wouldnt leave it with a note.

    Doesn't get any more accurate than that.
