    Hey guys!

    I am shipping an iPhone 4s from Canada to California. What is the cheapest shipper to send ? Is there any custom clearance thing ? For FedEx,if i declare it is an iPhone,it cost about 60bucks and it is regular one .

    thanks

    I've used most carriers shipping from Canada to the US. FedEx is usually the cheapest, and pretty fast. UPS is by far the worst, I wouldn't use them for anything.

    Just fill out the customs form correctly or you could get into trouble, the least of which would probably be "losing" the package.

    OT, but in the other direction, I have found USPS to be decent enough (and usually a bit cheaper than FedEx), and haven't had issues with customs provided the forms were filled out. I purchased an unlocked iPhone 3GS 2 years ago from Australia (we didn't have unlocked versions back then), had it shipped to me through Australia's postal service (which was finished by USPS here), and then sold it on a year later to someone in Canada. Both times, it went smoothly.

    If you are trying to make it easy on the recipient, send by Xpresspost USA. The brokerage fees tacked on by FedEx can be quite a lot. Less then UPS, but still quite unpleasant.
