    UPS tracking showing delivered at 10:00am PST this morning, and at 10:20am i went out and saw nothing. looked all over the house, I didn't even hear the UPS truck. My house is gated too and I have a dog, so it's hard to just come in and steal it

    now i'm on the phone with UPS, still waiting.

    anyone else have bad luck this morning?

    EDIT: I actually had TWO packages, one being shoes, BOTH mentioned delivered!, but NOTHING!

    EDIT 2: Finally got through to their "customer service," i was treated like a criminal. They claimed that it's not the drivers fault and he is one of the best, which i doubt she even knew him. They told me to file a POLICE report, yes a dumb police report instead of starting a claim for me. I Demanded her to call the UPS driver, and he claimed that He delivered to the correct house with "the gate". 90% of the houses in the street has a gate.

    I was furious after the phone call and not having anything done, i went to check my neighbors house hoping he did deliver it to the wrong house. Just before I reach the 3rd neighbors house, the UPS driver went in and grabbed two boxes from that house and brought it to me, saying "it's a good thing you called"

    man, that was a horrible morning. Glad I got the phone now

    Armin only got cancelled too, other bad news

    I have ATT, so it's as simple as popping in a sim card to activate it

    Maybe your UPS driver got a new iPhone today.

    Driver probably just scanned yours accidentally at a prior stop. I'll bet he has a LOT of similar looking boxes on the truck today :p

    That sucks. I went outside an hour ago to find a missed attempt sheet stuck to my front door. WTF? I swear, the UPS guy never even knocked. I was like 30 feet away from the door the whole morning, and just went outside to check on a whim when I saw it. There were two other people in the house and they heard nothing either. Its like they just walked up without the package and went aherpaderp and stuck the thing on my door and drove off.

    And I gotta work like 30 minutes after they get back to the hub, so looks like I'm picking it up tomorrow. Lame.

    This is why I am very disappointed that apple chose to ship with UPS instead of FedEx. I know someone can come up with a horror story for each company, but i have the wrost of luck with UPS in Hawaii doing this same exact thing. I have had a total of 4 packages (Shipped form various online vendors) in which all showed delivered without having a package. either my neighbors are thieves or UPS is up to some shady stuff around me in Hawaii.

    FWIW, in the lower 48, I never had issues with UPS.

    Happened to me with Fed X, they stated they knocked and rang the bell but no one answered when I ordered a Min from Apple, problem is I have three dogs and there were ppl home, so if he/she even came near the door and touched it bc these dogs would have gone nuts. However the Fed X office is right near work, so picked it up on my way home next day, but pissed me off.

    Your situation sucks a bit more and I hope you get a good resolution to it, but these shippers do lack some common skills, besides I thought that someone had to sign for the iPhone pre orders?

    That really blows. I'm lucky enough to have a flexible job that allows me to work from home when I need to - like today!

    On the online tracking page, does it state who, if anyone, signed for the packages?

    Chalk me up as another victim a driver not bothering to knock. (Not with an iPhone 4S, this happened a while ago.) I was home at the time. My wife has this afternoon off - I asked her to keep an ear out for the UPS guy and go open the door when she hears the truck, and not assume he'll ring the doorbell.

    I'm actually upset that ATT chose Fedex. They quietly knocked this morning at 8:00 am and by the time my rommmate got downstairs they were all the way down the street. They left the iphone on the porch which I did NOT want and Fedex assure me would not happen and the box was damaged. I've never had a problem with UPS but Fedex always pulls this stuff.

    not detroit, NYC. they delivered it to 188 instead of 152. the doorman at 188 is conveniently on break right now (i.e. selling my phone on canal street). we'll see.

    I always complain about delivery drivers for that reason. Why do they try their best to not be seen/heard? That's the difference between them and people that don't get their money until the delivery has been made (IE - Restaurant Delivery Drivers). You can be sure the delivery driver is going to make their presence known. But package deliveries? It's as if they enjoy making multiple delivery attempts.
