    This is why you don't leave a signature waiver when getting an iPhone 4S delivered.. the same employees who do this may take your own iPhone 4S. Check out this link:

    Not exactly the same situation as a signature waiver

    There are bad folks everywhere, but the vast majority of USP/FedEx workers are honorable
    I am sure they are outraged as much as everyone else

    The other day I was thinking - Apple was probably shipping like 100,000 iPhone 4S per flight from Anchorage to Lexington -- if the UPS pilot stole the plane and landed it in Mexico or Cuba instead, couldn't they make like $50 million dollars from the loot?

    Doesn't surprise me. I read in the Verizon preorder thread that someone received an empty box from FedEx that was supposed to contain their new 4s. Or maybe they called FedEx about their 4s delivery and FedEx informed them that the box was empty.

    What is even more sad is the terrible grammar and formatting of that supposed "news article". It just seems so poorly put together, it almost seems fake.

    I'm thinking if I were to steal an iPhone 4S it'd be a 64 GB one, not a 16. If you're gonna do something stupid, might as well go all the way.

    Wow, working with one of the largest shipping companies making 65k + a year(driver) and he steals a phone...

    Guess you don't know what you have until you lose it.

    He stole other phones as well. This was greed mixed with opportunism, he was stealing them to sell them not because "he just had to have one". Of course he could've afforded a phone while working at UPS, but that is not what this is about at all.

    This is just an hourly scrub working the belts/loading trucks. He is probably making around $10/hr.

    Post 9/11 he would have been shot out of the sky.

    What amazes me is why people will risk their job for an IPhone in this economic climate. :(

    Nobody in Cuba can even afford a regular phone much less an iPhone.

    Couriers are dodgy people, the amount of different courier company employees from separate companies that have tried to steal things, get out of paying for damaged goods or just mistreating equipment on pickup/delivery is just disgraceful.

    This man's actions do not surprise me.

    They may make that and more. But this guy wasn't a driver, he was probably some temp labor that loads and unloads the trucks. $12/hour max.

    Don Adams remains the only man who can legally have a phone in his shoe.
