    I ask because I'll be getting mine Monday. Unfortunately, I won't be home as I have a funeral to attend :(

    Do you think they'll just leave it on my porch? I don't mind if they do, they've done it numerous times before and I trust my neighbors, as I've been living here for almost 20 years.

    So, did some of you just get home and find your phone on your doorstep? If it matters, I bought from AT&T.

    Yes I had to sign (delivery from Fedex).

    You can pre-sign your package online if it's not too late and they will leave it at your door step, you do the pre-sign on the website.

    Mine came from Apple via UPS and I did not have to sign but I have had the same driver for many years and he always waits for me after ringing the door bell.

    I also noticed on my UPS tracking it lists my last name.

    Signed By: Last Name here...

    There is a link on your shipment notice from Apple that you can click to priint out a "Release" to post at yoru door. I would suggest that you just ask for it to be given to a specific neighboor since you have been there 20 yrs. The driver will note if he / she gave it to a person vs left at the door.

    I know you can pre-sign with apple, but like I said I bought from AT&T and they shipped it UPS. Is there a way I can check if it needs a signature? From what I remember something on the tracking page usually notifies you if a signature is required.

    I didn't have to sign with FedEx, they just left it on my porch. Didn't presign either.

    The official UPS directions are here:

    Have a Hassle-Free Delivery

    When you track your shipment, you'll know the exact date to expect it. To receive your shipment on the first delivery attempt, choose from these options:

    1. Leave a note for your driver asking him to leave your shipment in a safe designated place.

    2. If a signature is required, have the shipment delivered to a neighbor who will be available.​

    Yep. And I missed fedEX so I had to go to the facility to pick it up at 5:00pm. Fortunately the facility is only 2 miles from my home.
