    When is it that you can do the pre-sign for delivery? Two of my iPhone 5's are in the Preparation stage. I really would like to do a pre-sign, so I don't have to sit at home all day waiting for the delivery. Also, can you enter delivery instructions? I'd like to tell the delivery man where to put the package if I'm not at home.

    That way all the thugs following the trucks all day can just take your phone... It happens, not smart.

    Thank god my university signs my packages and holds them at a central location for pickup.

    Hopefully no UPS/FedEx horror stories of theft.

    So you do it after you get the Shipment Notification. Thanks. That was what I was looking for.

    I want to do this, too. I'm on vacation that day helping my sister in law that had surgery. So I'll be in and out, picking up our kids, etc. I might be unlucky and the truck will show up in the hour I leave :(

    I really doubt someone is going to be following the Fed-Ex truck around my little town doing this kind of thing. Maybe in NYC, but not here.

    Today I went to my girlfriends apartment complex to pick up a package and I was shocked. She went in, said her name and they threw her a box. No ID check, so signing or anything... Freaking Greenville...

    I've heard conflicting stories. Anybody know anything for sure? Especially from Verizon preorders?

    Wow interesting... Here at UNC they make you sign for your package and present your student ID to pick up. There is a delay in sorting though so even if it arrives at 9:30AM it won't be in the system until 11AM or so.

    That was just at an apartment complex. Shipping to an on campus residence is much more secure. ID check and all.

    I've presigned for 2 iPads, iPhone 4, apple tv's, and pretty much everything I've purchased online from apple. And the iPads and iPhone 4 were launch day deliveries. I will presign for the iPhone 5 and am not worried about it either.

    Does anyone know when/if this is supposed to appear? I work 12 hour shifts and won't be available any of their 3 tries and I don't want it going back to Apple. :eek:

    i talked to apple on the phone on sunday and you have to wait until the item actually ships to do a pre-sign. and by actually sips, i mean you have to receive notification from apple that it has shipped with a tracking number.
