    I don't know if anybody has said anything or even realized the craziness of the 25th for us in the northeast.

    The Pope is coming to Philadelphia the weekend of the 25th and the iPhone 6S and 6S plus are supposed to deliver on that day. Apparently my usual 15min commute to work is said to take anywhere between 5-6hours. I am not sure how this is even going to work for UPS/FedEx/USPS. I believe UPS and FedEx aren't even doing Saturday deliveries here on the 26th. So I am just guessing and Assuming but I think some if not everyone in this area won't get their delivery till Monday or Tuesday.

    Anybody else have any thoughts?

    I am glad I do not live is either city as I would not have good feeling towards the Pope if he delayed my phone and I am Catholic!:mad:

    Tim Cook follows the Pope on twitter. I'm sure they've worked out some deal. Expect to see Cardinals hand delivering boxes paired with special blessings or grievances.

    I agree with Bbqthis, it's a conspiracy between Apple and the Vatican to deny iPhone buyers in the city of brotherly love from getting their phones on the 25th. I'm also sure the CIA and Interpol are involved as well as the KGB and the Chinese Intelligence Service.:rolleyes:

    This will be his first visit to the US, certainly we can give the benefit of the doubt.

    Pope gets paid to believe in the make believe. That's incredibly stupid that traffic will be backed up for his stupid arse. Hopefully his visit will be horrible and he will never come back again. I'll do my part to help make that happen if he ever visits the northwest!

    If my delivery is delayed because of a pope, there'll be hell to pay.

    Clearly the pope is coming to pick up his iPhone on launch day.

    Deliveries should be fine... Unless you're in midtown or something.
