    Anyone have UPS not leave the phone even with a signed release form?

    My buddy checked his status and said 1st attempt failed 2nd attempt will be Monday.

    Flipping sucks for him. What good is a release form if they don't accept it?

    The previous stop for his phone was an hour away. Anyway for him to call to pick it up at a distribution center? He can't seem to find the right information on their website.
    Would the phone go back to that last stop on the tracking, or would there be a closer facility that wasn't shown on the tracking trail?

    Luckily my wife is home today.

    its ultimately up to the drivers discretion whether or not they leave it.

    does your friend live in the hood or something?

    The UPS driver has the option to not leave the phone/package. It is their A$$ if the package gets stolen

    Today would be a great day for ethically-challenged individuals to follow UPS trucks on their routes picking up packages that have been signed-for in advance. Bad guys read news stories too, and I think it's worth a slight inconvenience to avoid a bigger one.

    Call ups, tell them you'd like the box held for pickup at the local "hub", they'll send a message for it to be left at the counter & give you a time that the drivers come back and what time they close (window of time)

    Actually it's the person who pre-signed the shipment's ass.

    Are you sure your note didn't accidentally fall off your door?

    Maybe the driver just didn't' see the note?

    Funny thing I left a shipment authorization letter in the front door, asking them to open my apt. door and leave it inside, before I headed to the gym. I come home and guess what? Got a note from UPS saying "Door is Locked?". Turns out my apt manager decided to do a fire safety inspection in the morning and left the door locked before the UPS guy arrived. All this in one hours time. I guess I have to wait till 6 pm today! Bah whats in a phone anyways right?

    Maybe the UPS driver saw this guy following him around in his truck?

    So if we miss it today and call up to have it held at the center, can we pick it up at the center tonight, or do we have to wait until tomorrow, or worse, Monday?

    He is in a nice neighborhood in the sticks. He has had plenty of packages left without signature before.
    He said it was taped good to the door and he has a front porch covering things, since it was raining earlier, but the wind wasn't bad at all. I taped mine to my door inside a ziploc, but my wife is home now waiting for it.

    Yeah I told him to check the slip the driver would have left and there should be a number to call. Hopefully, it isn't back to the center that is over an hour away and would be closer as there is a town nearby I think has a UPS center.
    He left work early now to hopefully get it tonight.
