    For those of us who are receiving their iPhone via Fed, indirect signature is required. I am curious if people are planning on being home to sign for the package or if you plan on leaving the waiver to have the deliver without signature. Normally, I would sign the waiver and not worry about it. However, this is a fairly expensive device and its a hot commodity during release window, so I am a tad nervous. Thoughts?

    I like to have my high dollars items held at the local FedEx for pick-up.

    I looked into that. However, Verizon is sending these standard overnight. It doesn't look like its an option with overnight packages.

    After the first delivery attempt, it goes back to the station. At that point you can pick it up, or ask for it to be held. Still takes an extra day or part of a day, but might beat waiting for the reattempt.

    Do you have a FedEx account? It's free, and usually gives you the option either online, or, thru the app (which I usually use). There may be parameters set-up by the shipper though that does not allow this, but, those times for me have been very few and far between.

    Although it states indirect signature is required, the option to leave a signed note/form on the door is grayed out online. Apparently the indirect signature is allowed, but not on the first attempt according to a FedEx rep I spoke to earlier.

    I'm sure there are going to be a few stolen iPhone from doorsteps tomorrow.

    Yes, it looks like that option as well as the option to hold at a FedEx office and pay for a specific delivery time are all grated out. Supposedly there is an option to see the estimated delivery time range, but I have yet to find it.

    Every year, my dad call's FexEx and asks them to hold it so he can pick it up in the morning before he heads into the office. They agree, even if the option is grayed out online. Just in case you didn't know and may want to do that.
