    I shipped an iphone 5 to a friend via USPS priority mail however i did one horrible mistake. I wrote "Unitas ave" as "Unitus ave" in street address.
    Will it be a problem?

    It has reached the postoffice in the area she lives in. I hope it gets delivered and i did put signature confirmation.

    Is there a Unitus ave? It could be delayed and with USPS, if something is returned to them then for me it's always been a headache.

    Either way, people have butchered my address before and remarkably, I've gotten packages. I hope it works out for you.

    If you got the ZIP code right, and there's no "Unitus" ave. in that ZIP code, you should be okay.

    Too funny: when I did a search on "misspelled addresses" everything on the first page had to do with e-mail addresses.

    Agreed, and beyond that. My brother recently moved to a new street and I mailed him something and he lives on 269 G Burdick street.

    I mailed something to him and put 269 Burdick street. He got what I sent him, but he informed me that there is a Burdick street, G burdick street and a N Burdick street. I think the post office is good at making the names up with the zip codes, and knowing their territory.
